    Do you happen to be running any virtual computer/server sessions in the "cloud"? Looking at the IP address, it looks like it could be from your internal network. "Compute" is a term used by cloud computing services for running virtual computers and servers. Amazon has their AWS and ECC, Microsoft has Azure, Google has Cloud Computing Services, and there are others. "us-west-2" appears to be a region used by AWS (https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/using-regions-availability-zones.html). If you aren't running any virtual sessions with AWS, do you happen to have any Amazon devices that use the "cloud" for storage? Do you have UPnP open on your router?
