Duration: 13 minutes
No of observers: 2

Location: Auburn, WA, USA

Shape: Light
Characteristics: Aircraft nearby

Steady, amber/orange, single light seen moving across the horizon.

A steady, amber/orange, single point light was seen in the sky above the horizon to the northwest of our house. Commercial aircraft were landing to the North at SEATAC; two aircraft were observed moving down the approach to SEATAC from the southwest to the west-northwest horizon from our vantage point while the amber/orange light was in the northwest sky. Local fireworks in celebration of the Seahawks Superbowl win were seen through the trees all around the western horizon as seen from our house.

The light appeared to move very slowly southward or south-southeastward from the first position we saw it in the northwest, 20 to 25 degrees above the horizon. The light appeared to change its direction and speed of movement from southward or southeastward, to southwestward, and rapidly increase its altitude. After about 13 minutes from when we first spotted the light above the NW horizon we lost sight of it to the west of our position and roughly 70 degrees elevation.
