Round light hovering low in the sky then sped northwest fast lasting longer than a shooting star and disappeared

On February 26, 2020, about 4:10 p.m. my husband and I were traveling west on Idaho U.S. Highway 12 just a little past the Clearwater River Casino on the Nez Perce Reservation west side boundary. It was still a little light out, but we saw like a round bright light. The bright round light was low in the sky hovering and then all of the sudden, like a shooting star, it speeded up fast and zoomed northwest and lasted longer than a shooting star then disappeared. I wondered if it was a shooting star, but haven’t seen one hover in place like that. I searched on Google for falling comets or shooting stars the next day to see if anyone reported something similar, but I didn’t see any reports in the area. So not sure what we saw. Haven’t seen anything like that before though.
