Red Lights seen over Gulf of mexico from St George Island Florida

Red lights seen over Gulf of Mexico from ST. George Island.

My new wife and I were sitting on the porch at our rental beach house on St George Island Florida March 6,2007 between 9 and 9:30 PM. We were looking south over the Gulf in the sky and she thought she saw a red shooting star, although it really didn’t move and didn’t look like any shooting star we had seen before. We both then saw several strange red lights appear horizontally in the sky, anywhere from a 10PM to 2PM radius (if you were to use a clock as a comparison). Then within a few minutes they came back and did the same thing again. A few minutes later much closer in the gulf, a single red/white light appeared and lit up the gulf like a sunrise would reflect on the water, then vanished. The light at one point would start off as one light then seem to turn with two lights coming towards you, then disappear. One theory we had was that there were jets from Pensacola Air Station, maybe practicing in the gulf at night with fake ammo, although I called the station and they mentioned that they usually don’t train at night.
