Light hovering 200’ over ridge line viewed for 10-15min from multiple angles

Leaving my parents house in the evening after having dinner I got to a part of the road that overlooks the valley and the hill on the other side. At the top of the ridge on the far side I noticed a very bright light hovering about 200’ up approximately over glacier view high school. Initially I thought it might be a helicopter with a directional light but as I drove across the hill towards the highway parallels to the light it did not dim. From this it was clear that it wasn’t directional and was too bright to be a stationary light from that distance.

At this point I called my parents and asked them to look out the upper Windows of their house which can see that area in the winter when the leaves are off the trees. They, while on the phone with me confirmed that they could also see the bright light over the ridge line. We ended the call after that.

I continued onto highway 9 headed south across the valley from Snohomish towards the light and the high school. As I got to the base of the hill I saw the light quickly move to the west out of sight within 1-2seconds. I had intended on going to where it was hovering to look further but it was gone.

While it was there there were at least two other planes in the air near the area as there is a municipal airport in the valley but none seemed interested in the light I saw.
