Odd Light in the night sky in mid-Michigan

If you ever see anything remotely unusual in the sky drop whatever you’re doing, stop, and take a damn good look! My girlfriend and I were traveling south on Bray road. We were heading home from a late dinner. We crossed Birch Run Road and as we traveled south I noticed a solid bright light in the distant south east sky (possibly 4-6 miles away). The dome shaped light looked to be in the general direction of a cell phone tower which is located on Lewis road just south of Vienna road. At first, because the light was stationary, I thought maybe new lights were added to the tower for some reason (I had never seen the light before). However, the dome shaped light seemed to be something I can only describe as "the typical UFO photo or video", so I told my girlfriend to slow down. As we moved into a tree line which partially blocked our view I realized the intensity of the light because of the way it broke through the trees. As the tree line thickened it became difficult to see the light. The tree line got very thick and we could no longer see the light ,I told my girlfriend to speed up. The light was gone when we could see the sky again. We decided to retrace the route immediately to see if the light was still in the sky. We drove the same route again, we did not see the same light, it disappeared from where we had seen it.
