Red Sky at Night

UPDATE: Saturday morning, Oct 2 2010:
I just looked at the St Croix Source and there wasn't anything mentioned. Maybe it was lights from the Fireburn commemoration. Was probably just one of those things... I'll try to remember to look tonight and see what's up.
A few minutes ago, just before 11pm, I looked out the companionway because the sky was red like a sunset.  I thought that it must be the moonrise but unless something really bizarre has happened, the moon doesn't rise in the south...

The clouds were pink and their light was flickering a bit like maybe there's a fire on the other side of the island. Hope not... Probably nothing, but it sure looked strange.

Of course, there's no news on the radio.  In fact, they rarely change the weather forecast over the weekend.  If Sunday's sounds familiar, it's probably because you heard the same forecast on Friday and Saturday. This is really bad when you're worried about an approaching storm.

Anyway, these fuzzy pictures are not a good representation of what I saw... Sort of take the two photos and average them out :)

Without flash - Should be more pink

Some sort of flash setting but I'm not sure what (too red)
Hope it's something simple like stadium lights or something... Maybe it will be in Saturday's paper.
