Bright light hanging in sky then zig-zagging downward and disappearing.

My wife was driving down the highway and noticed a very bright light in the sky (near Mt.Hood, I think), that was not moving. As there were aircraft in the area, she expected it to move, but it didn't. It was a very clear afternoon, with the mountains in clear view, and no stars in sight. After watching the light for a minute or so, she decided to stop and try to figure out what it was,shortly after she stopped it zigg-zagged downward and disappeared. As she is not a UFO believer, she is hesitant to call this a UFO sighting, but she was excited and confused by what she saw. Could you let us know if there were any more sightings at this time and location?
