Round object in night sky with flames encircling it

I was driving west on CR 232 near CR 337 after class at night. Sky was clear, and stars were visible, a night that would be great for star gazing, no clouds or moon that I remember. No towns with 10 miles of me (local unincorporated town named Craggs), and no street lights within about 20 miles of me.

A single object in front and to my right, up an unknown number of feet (over 50' at a minimum) of the ground caught my eye. It was round, completely black in the middle and had what appeared to be orange flames around it. CR 232 dipped, and I had lost sight of it above the treeline, when the road came back up.

Thinking it was something else, like a radio tower, I came home a different way the next few nights I had class. Where the towers are eliminated the idea it was the antennas I had seen.

I have lived out here for 10 years, and this is the only time I have seen anything like it. I had the driver's side window open, so the only noise I had heard was from the wind.
