Bright stationary light in clear blue sky fading and reappearing in different locations

While driving south on 131 (St. Joseph Valley Parkway) on my way to work, the sun was just up and fully illuminating the sky. The sky was completely clear and blue. I noticed a very bright light brighter than a star at night to the left. At first, I dismissed it and continued to watch the road. Then I realized that that was not normal. There were no stars in the sky, and it was so bright. I looked back up to where I saw it and it was gone. I kept watching the sky now, and then I saw it reappear on the right side of the highway. It didn't move. It just shone for a minute or so and then faded away. I'd keep watching and it would reappear in a different spot but in the same general vicinity, with the exception of going to the left side of the highway twice. This happened about five or six times. The strangest thing about it was that it was so bright and that it didn't move. It was stationary until it would fade and reappear somewhere else.
