Bright yellow light hovering over Interstate 5 - in Woodburn?

Bright yellow light hovering over Interstate 5 - possibly in Woodburn area. As we headed toward it, driving from Salem to Portland, it appeared to be an extremely bright star in the sky, then perhaps an aircraft of some sort, but as we got closer to it we realized that there were no other lights, like small blinking lights that planes usually have. Eventually we got close enough to it that we actually drove under it - it was hard to tell how many feet above us it was, but it wasn't as high up as a plane would be.
