Brilliant bright light to to the west of my house just above the horizon moving erratically

I was watching TV last night and as I was getting ready to head to bed I looked out my living room windows that face Due West and noticed what I thought at the time to be a star. After watching it for a few moments, I noticed that it was moving Left and Right in short jerky movements. As I watched it, the movements became longer and more lengthy in duration and speed. It would move to the right for half a second and then to the left. At roughly 2219 I grabbed my phone and started to record it both on video and still pictures.

The more I watched it the more random and steady the movements became.

at about 90% of the way though the duration on my viewing it became very almost deliberate and at the last moment it shot to the south west and covered 2-3 miles in less than a second and was gone.

This may not sound relevant but I had literally just completed watching Expedition Unknown on the Discovery Channel and they had just completed an hr long investigation of the Mt Adams area and had recorded something near there that was as close to what I was seeing as you could get, A Bright white light, 2-3 times larger than Venus and it moved in near circles and back and forth left to right in the same manner that the object that I witnessed did. They experienced virtually the same thing as me but I am 150+ miles to the NW of that area.

My home faces west and has a large A frame style so I could see if from several different positions in the house.

I uploaded the video to Facebook and almost immediately friends started mentioning that they had seen it too and one friend that I have know for 25+ years mentioned that she had seen the same thing back in the 1992-1993 in the house that she grew up in. That house is 1.5 miles from me and faces the water in the same direction as mine.

I would say that the object was just about 10 degrees above the horizon due west of my home.
