Glowing orange light over the mountains.

My son, his friend and I were camping at Spaulding Pond in Josephine County on 7-31-14. High in the Kalmiopsis Wilderness area off of Hwy 199, near Selma Oregon.

We were camping and had been hearing quite a few jets and jet engines flying fairly low over the mountains. We had been watching the stars and the sky due to all the jet noise.

We were pointing out airplanes as we saw them, when a large orange glowing light appeared over the mountains toward the coast. It appeared stationary. It expanded and contracted a couple times and disappeared after a few seconds (maybe 5 or so).

It looked to be over in the Coos Bay area from our mountain top view.
