viewed only for seconds-red glowing light on the surface of the water

On Monday, April 4, 2011 at about 6:00 pm, I saw a round, red glowing light in a body of water while flying to D.C. from Atlanta GA. Flight was about 15 minutes from landing in D.C. I could clearly see houses from above and their pools quite closely.

My aircraft must have been over Virginia and the body of water must have been the Potomac. I looked out of the window and saw the red light in the water, not that far from the land, but in deep water-after staring at it for about 5 seconds it disappeared. I was not a boat or a light house, just a large glowing red light.
