bright light in the sky long observation

At roughly 6pm I was driving from southern Oregon to Washington state, and after passing through Portland to Vancouver, wa. I notice a very large light in the sky to the West of me.

At first glance I assumed it was an aircrafts headlights, because it was way too bright to be star or Jupiter, and with a heavy overcast there would not be any way for it to be outside
our atmosphere.

Assuming this was a jets headlights I was waiting for it to turn, but never did. I don't think it was traveling at all, or maybe it was traveling north at the same speed I was, but it seemed to linger in the same location for roughly 25 mins, as I was traveling north at roughly 70 mph...

It would sometimes disappear behind the clouds, but then re appear. The light almost looked wider to plane than vertical, and very bright. Other people had to of witnessed it, because it was there so long.

This was not a reflection from my window, something very large and bright was either very high altitude and bright, or aircraft altitude and moving parallel speed with me for a long time.

The light was almost a vibrant blue white light.
