Bright White Round object over ocean near Sea Lion Caves in mid coast Oregon

My wife and I witnessed seeing a very bright white round light while I was looking down towards the ocean shore while driving north from the city of Florence on route 101. The light was much larger than any type of search light or light house, and was out over the ocean, not far off shore. This observation occurred around 8:45 on November 16th 2017. I was driving during the sighting, and was unable to pull over until we arrived at the Sea Lion Caves pull of area about 1/4 to1/2 of mile north of the area where I observed the white circular light. Once we pulled into the Sea Lion Caves parking lot we were unable to see anything in the direction were we first saw the light.

((NUFORC Note: We spoke with this witnesses wife, who also witnessed the object. We suspect that both husband and wife are exceptionally capable, and reliable, witnesses. PD))
