Large bright light kept pace with Boeing semi-truck on I'5 at Brooks Oregon then shot across sky, stopped then hovered.

On Thurs. Eve/Nov. 4 6:25 PM my freind, ((name deleted)), was driving in a Boeing semi-truck southbound past Brooks, Oregon on I'5 (just 1/2 hour ago) spotted a large white light (round/ball-shaped) in the night sky. (I don't have all the exact details but he called me on his cell phone in a highly excited state to give me some basic info.) Apparently he could see the object out of one of his windows and said if he'd had his arm stretched out it would be about the size of a quarter. Thus, it appeared MUCH larger than others stars and typical night sky objects. The object seemed to be keeping pace with his truck as he continued south on I-5 and for a time seemed not to be actually moving at all but it looked so big and odd that he elected to keep his eye on it. All of a sudden the object shot across the sky at an extremely fast speed then stopped. He said it came to an unbelievably ABRUPT stop. It hovered in that spot for a few seconds then shot across the sky again in a different direction and came to another abrupt stop. I'm not clear how many times the object did this but he continued to watch it. All of a sudden he said the object faded to black and disappeared right where he last viewed it hovering. He said he never saw it dart away instead it was like it faded to black. Because ((name deleted)) is on a tight trucking schedule he is not able to make a report himself this evening. He will be back home in Auburn, Washington on Saturday afternoon, Nov. 6 and will e-mail you then with more precise details. I'm not sure if I got every little fact straight here but I thought you should know the basics as quickly as possible tonight.
