Dark orange fireball settles in the west

Very dark orange almost red ball hovered slowly in the west sky while we sat by the fire. We were looking west all evening, and then out of nowhere a orange glow appeared.

My exact words were "I hope a plane didn't just catch on fire in the air"

The "thing" slowly settled over the tree line.

No clue what it was but it was NOT normal.
