The whole sky turned Blood Red including the clouds coming from atop of them for an hour

athe Went Hunting around 5 in the morning on the East side of the Blue Ridge Mountains near a small town called Afton.

As I parked and started up the Mountain all of a sudden the complete sky over the Mts looking west turned red even the clouds took on a red tint. It was not time for the sun to come up . It looked like flashes of red. It brought me to mind like a nuclear explosion of some sort up over top the clouds.

Flashes of red continued for approx an hour. I even called home to make sure everything was alright on that side of the Mountain. It was a very erie thing to experience.

All I could do was watch it. It was as if I was frozen or something. The entire sky and everything in it turned blood red. Flashing and flashing.

Please tell me what it could be. It lit up the entire western sky, right above the mountains.
