Ventura County – unknown even – 10-18-2021…What I saw didn't seem like a single UFO but an event. I saw an orange cloud or light inside

What I saw didn't seem like a single UFO but an event. I saw an orange cloud or light inside a cloud. One would think that it was the clouds reflecting a fire below, this is California after all, but it was far to bright to be a reflection of a fire or any kind of light. This section of cloud was glowing orange constantly, no fluctuation in intensity or color. In the center of this cloud there was an indent. I don't know what was creating that indent but in the center it was obviously pushed in. From my vantage point on a hill in Thousand Oaks, the light would seem to be over the Camarillo Grade on the 101 or could have been possibly out to sea. It large in size but appeared to be very far away. From where I am the Camarillo Grade is a good 10 miles or so and if you were to go in a straight line from my house to the Camarillo Grade then just behind it say maybe 5 or 8 miles you'd be out in the ocean. I first saw the light a little before 12 pm and wh! en I awoke again around 4 am it was still there, it hadn't moved or changed color. The shear size of the area lit up and the intensity was far greater than anything man could make. At the time I checked the Ventura County fire and Cal Fire to see if there were any fires and there were not. There were no helicopters in the sky nears this cloud and on any given night in this area there are helicopters in the sky. I checked the next day and nothing mentioned with the fire or police or in any of the local news. I do have photos that I'd like to share. The photos are seen through a window and window screen so the focus isn't that great but it will give you an idea of the size of this and you can see the indent in one of the close ups.
