Large Glowing Something Near McChord Air Force Base Viewd From Lacey, WA

I was on my home late at night after going to the grocery store. I was traveling on Union Mills Rd. and at the point where it dead ends into Marvin Rd. is where I saw what ever it was, as I was about to turn right onto Marvin Rd. I seen an extremely large extremly bright yellowish light floating in the sky, that illuminated the surrounding clouds.

From the way I was positioned at the stop sign before I turned onto marvin it was directly in front of me, hence if I would have driven directly across marvin and into the field in front of me it appeared to be approx. 4-5 miles away which would have put in only a couple of miles from McChord Air Force Base,

so I turned on to marvin road, and then took an immediate left into the Mcallister Park housing development which leads up a large hill, unfortunately after reaching the top of the hill I could not find anything, I was intrigued enough to go back to where I had my sighting and again could not find anything. I was just hoping maybe someone got a better look, Thanks
