Characteristics: There was an aura or haze around the object, The object changed color
strange colored light in the sky that vanished

Not sure what I saw, but I saw it 2 different times tonight. The first sighting was around 20:00 TO 21:00. The first time was just after sunset, thought it couldve been the reflection of the sun on an airplane. The color was bright oarange/red, very strange. The flight path was odd as it climbed quickly and soon was out of sight. My wife was witness to this 1st sighting. The second sighting was the same color, same sort of light and shape. The light was in the same place as the 1st time, which made me again think it couldve been a plane taking off from Tampa Intl Airport or St. Pete Clearwater, but it was too high to be St Pete Clearwater. The light again disappeared into the sky. I am not sure what I saw, but if others saw something thing strange than so be it. I should also mention that this was in the general direction of Mcdill AFB.
