|Red in color light appears in clearing storm clouds and moves at high speed.
There were severe storms present to the north and west. I was looking at the clearing in the heavy clouds and fixed on a particular area of scud appearing in the clearing at around 300 degrees WNW. In the clear area of the sky, a small red light appeared and just hung for about five seconds. My wife joined me and had her phone ready to take pictures of the strange "orange/green" hue of the sky. She found it when I pointed it out and switched to video right about the time it started moving and followed it moving WSW. It leaves the screen at about 220-230 degrees. (I am an amateur astrophotographer, so I have the cardinal directions basically memorized from my front and back decks). The video is of strange quality - as the color was red live, and I saw nothing trailing with the naked eye. It appears white in the video. I was an F/A-18A and TWA Avionics technician many years ago for about a decade and I photograph air shows. I rarely see aircraft move that fast in civilian airspaces and there was no sound (which could have been due to winds aloft). I went through the house to the back deck but saw nothing. The clouds were much thicker and it took about 7-10 seconds to get back there and onto the deck.
