Very bright oval light yellowish in color on a very windy, very cloudy night

I let my dogs out and looked directly across my back pasture. I saw a bright yellowish round to oval shaped light in the sky right above the tree line. It was surprising to see because a line of thunderstorms had moved through earlier and it was still very cloudy with light rain. It was motionless. It was bright enough to cast light out from around it as the moon does. The weather was windy and the trees were blowing obscuring my vision somewhat.

My first thought was that it actually was the moon, but then I realized it was far too low for the moon at this time of night; also, I went back in the house to tell others (about 2 minutes), and when I returned, it had moved to below and behind the tree line. It seemed that it had moved down in a “setting” pattern as the sun does. I could still see bits of it through the trees because it was so bright.

I went back into the house to report what was happening. When I came back, it was gone completely.
