2 large red/orange lights on the Southern horizon, observed every night for nearly a week.

Every night for approximately a week in mid February, I observed 2 large red/orange "lights" on the Southern horizon. They were, from my location on the 2nd floor apartments balcony, just above the tree tops but very far away. They would appear for 15 to 30 minutes and then fade out only to reappear a little while later. On more than one night I saw them while driving South on Highway 27 from Clermont towards my apartment which is about 15 miles South of Clermont. I have lived in this same location for 5 years and am familiar with the towers and other aerial lights in the area. I am also very familiar with aircraft and the lights associated with them. These were very different from typical tower, aircraft or other lights I am use to seeing. They were also not the typical color of military flares that are claimed to have caused the "Phoenix Lights." After seeing them every night for about a week they disappeared. I still check every night hoping I can catch them again and get some neighbors as witnesses. I wouldn't have reported this if I hadn't found three reports listed for the same time period by people in Florida. All of those sightings confirmed to me the location and strangeness of what I saw.
