Brilliant sparkling orange object over North end of Lake Washington

I was walking out to my car at 7:45 in the evening when a vivid orange sparkling light caught my attention. It was slightly below treetop level in my line of vision, ( My yard has tall mature evergreen trees). The object was approaching from the East.

At first I thought it was a small plane or helicopter, but it was totally silent,it appeared to be about the size of a dime held at arms length. As I fumbled for my cell phone to record it, it slowly turned and headed North, then abruptly disappeared at the moment I activated my cellphone camera. The flight path was not usual for this area, and I have never seen anything this color before.
