Giant flaming ball crept across horizon.

We saw a large orb floating across the sky very slowly (or quickly for how high up is was). we watched for three to five minutes, we even had time to wake up our housemates to come check it out. thru binoculars it appeared to be a giant ball of fire. it moved all the way across the horizon then burned out or disappeared. When looking at it just with our eyes it would "bump" up in down. it must have been bumping up and down a pretty big distance because across the sky it would jump either a few inches up or down. It covered the entire horizon i can see in a matter of minutes so it had to be going super fast.

i saw it begin at the port of olympia, and it went north following budd inlet towards and past boston harbour and burfoot park towards tacoma. what was this thing?? there was also a plane going super quickly much much lower than the weird fire ball moving across the sky. the plane appeared to be moving much quicker than the fire thing, which is! crazy because the fire ball was going super fast to begin with.
