Bright red orbish light hovering over Seattle bay area!

I went out on my deck to check the sky again once more before going to bed and my attention was drawn to the North as commercial flights were taking off to the North tonight and circling around Seattle, anyway, there was a bright red light moving in a northerly direction and ascending at a fairly slow speed. I did a double take because I could not believe my eyes, I thought at first a plane or helicopter but it was just a red light, no blinkers or different colors, just a steady glowing, red orb. A commercial jet actually passed in front of it (from my view) and was banking left to head Westerly, this is when I knew it was NOT a plane or helicopter! I knocked on the French door for my wife and frantically waved at her to come outside. She came out and witnessed it for a minute and then went back in, So, I ran and got my binocs and went to the front yard where I got an unobstructed view. By this time it was higher and I’m going to guess about 3-4 thousand feet? Maybe less, I see plenty of Cessna’s flying at about the same altitude. It then stopped and stayed in the relative same place for several minutes, it would sort of pulse I guess I would say or become less intense of a red every couple seconds. It finally dimmed and then was gone. I estimate that where it hovered for the longest would’ve been maybe a couple miles or so north of me, putting it directly over the West Seattle Freeway or the Seattle Port maybe? It was very strange indeed specially due to the fact that I sent in a report last night for a triangle craft or 3 lights in formation that sped across the sky! Strange times.
