Large Orb Above White Tank Mountain Range

I was standing on my back patio which faces west towards the White Tank mountain range and noticed a bright amber orb just above a peak on the mountain range.

It was stationary and seemed to brighten quickly at times.

I thought it might be a star, it was brighter and bigger than any other star visible in the sky.

I went back inside the house for about 20min and returned to the patio to view it again and it was gone.

I looked higher in the sky to see if it had changed position like a star (due to earth's rotation), but did not see anything that looked similar in size or brightness.
