White light crosses sky, turns, then appears to hover before fading out.

As I went out of my apartment, I saw a massive white light in the sky moving at a good speed N N/E. After just a few seconds I had the thought, "I can't think of anything that could possibly be besides the international space station. Well, unless it was a UFO. (Haha)" IMMEDIATELY after the second half of that thought passed through my head... The light veered east. 😒 it got to a point far north and a bit east of Bend, then stopped. 😒 This light was VERY bright; it was just a few degrees off of a street lamp and still was clearly definable. It just stopped moving altogether and sat there for a few minutes slowly dimming until I couldn't make it out anymore.

The next day I noted that the point at which it had come to rest was approximately the peak of Black Butte.
