Description: I have a video of it. It was a bright orb like object just hovering. I have been a longtime sky watcher and this was the first time that I have witnessed this. I was on the way back from China and had a layover in Seattle and witnessed this.
Response From Witness: It did disappear right after I stopped the video. I was naive think if it would still be there in a few seconds. I was trying to send to my friend a short video and I went to film it again and it was gone. It disappeared in mid air. I’m sure you see a lot of crazy things in Washington, yea?
Note: The object is not a bright planet because it is below the clouds. It could be a balloon, but there should be some drift with the wind. It is not likely to be a high altitude balloon because the balloons normally are maintained at a constant height and the witness said that it vanished shortly. It is unlikely to be a drone as it is near Seattle-Tacoma Airport. Drones are not allowed to be within 4 miles of an airport. Also a drone would not disappear in mid air. The weather in Seattle at the time of the video showed a few clouds at 6,000 feet and 20,000 feet. Visibility was 10 miles.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting. Be detailed in your description.
