Orange glowing cylindrical spinning object - Roseburg Oregon

My husband and I were driving southbound on hwy 99 to Roseburg (approx. Winchester) I noticed a glowing orange light about 600 feet above the ground. I asked him to pull over and see what it was. After we stopped the car, we saw that it was moving slowly in a straight line going southbound. As we got out of the car, it was above us. It had stopped moving. We noticed it was cylinder shaped. It was rotating like a spinning globe, with a tilt. After 2 min of watching this, it started moving in the same direction as before. Just then a cop car pulled up to see what we were doing. As my husband was talking to the police officers, I continued to watch it slowly move and flicker, almost like it was burning out. Then from the bottom of it, a glowing orange small object fell. As my husband was trying to explain and show them where it was, it had vanished. They then joked with us, thought we were lying. Then drove off.
