Bright light hovered above city for 2+ hours. Thought it may be a planet, but clouds moved behind it and it looked much closer.

My partner leaves for work around 4am most mornings. I moved to the living room and noticed the light shining through our big window was much too bright to be the average plane in the SDF flight path. Having been here a year, I have seen many planes on the SDF flight path go into and out if the city. This didnít look quite like that. It had a large halo, almost like the ring that the moon gets on a misty night. The clouds were visible and moving behind the light. I checked my sky tracker to be sure it wasnít a planet. It was not a planet. I chalked it up to being a plane, but it sat still for way too long to make sense as a plane, I went back to sleep after taking a few photos and it continuing to not move in the sky, but was unable to figure out what it was. We are on the edge of a cliff overlooking the Louisville Skyline and the highways. Without the leaves on the trees, our southbound view is pretty clear. Would be really interested to find out what would hover for that long and then be gone when I woke up again at 7am.
