Strange light in the shape of a teardrop, slightly orange in color

I lying in my hammock in my backyard at approximately 1:47 on December 26th. It was raining very lightly, but just below the cloud cover I saw a strange orange-ish light in the shape of a teardrop. Now, I thought this was very odd, because while there is a small airport near my house, it was a cloudy night and I couldn't imagine any small plane flying that early in the morning in such poor weather. The light wasn't moving, and I watched it for about 15 seconds before I ran inside to grab my video camera. It took me about 3 minutes to prepare the camera inside, and by the time I came back outside, the rain had intensified and the light was gone. I could hear no distinct noise from it, and had no strange feelings or emotions during or after the incident (other than excitement, obviously). I am convinced it was a UFO.
