Ufo over Western Washington July 16th, 2010

My daughter and I were outside and this object went above us heading straight due north. It was a light silver colored disc with a bottom that was about half the size of the craft. The half round bottom looked as though it may have been translucent (it's color was grayish and slightly opalescent. When the craft passed over what was probably SeaTac airport, it became very, very bright and looked like a star. But only roughly 6-7 seconds later, it dimmed again and we could still see it's disc/orb outline. We watched it as far as our eyes would allow for. My daughter mentioned the uncanny lack of air traffic as this object moved over the airport area. About two minutes after we could no longer see it, we saw a plane come from the airport area. We did not observe the object come from the South; it seemed to just appear in the sky out of nowhere. It was east of us when looking north.
