Super Bright Light over Gold Bar

Between 9:30 p.m. and 9:40 p.m. my husband and I and a neighbor were sitting on our deck visiting and looking at the stars. A very bright light fell slowly from the sky to the east. It stopped when it got about 4,000 ft. high and moved towards us (N.W.) for 10 or 15 seconds and then the light disappeared. The light was very, very bright and about 4 times as big as the light on an airliner. (We are in a flight path, for flights coming from the east over the Cascades, so we know what they look like.) It did not make any sound we could hear. At first we thought maybe it was a meteor falling, but then it stopped falling and changed direction.
