Sighting Details

I was driving home from Matamoras PA coming over Highpoint Mountain on route 23 when I got the crest of the mountain you can look out and see the valley and then the mountains and ski slopes in Vernon on the other side. High above the ski slopes was a big orange/reddish ball that just hovered there. There was no movement which made me believe it was a light at the ski slopes. Then I realized it was way too large and way too high in the sky to be a light from the ski slopes. I kept watching it as I drove down the mountain and it still didn't move and it appeared to get bigger. I also realized that it it was an airplane or helicopter because it didn't have traditional running lights plus it was much larger. I decided to try to get a photo of it but needed to fins a safe place to pull off the road. When I finally parked and tried to get a photo, my iPhone could not get a focus on it because the sky was too dark. All of a sudden the light just disappeared but it never moved. There was no movement at all it just disappeared as if someone just turned the lights off. I can't say it is extraterrestrial at all, the only thing I can say is that it was a strange light that I just can't explain. I'm just curious as to if anyone else saw it and may have a logical answer for it.
