Myself and a group of fellow campers were sleeping in a fire lookout on top of a mountain at 7,300 feet elevation with mt. shasta in view. i woke up at 3 am, looked out the window and saw a glowing, pulsating, orange light on what i thought was the next hill over. i was alarmed at first, thinking it was a fire. i continued to watch it and realized it was not a fire and that it was actually hovering in front of the hill across the valley i watched it for a few minutes. i think it may have been quite large. it then suddenly disappeared without moving at all.
