Red glowing object flying by on a cloudy night.

About 2 weeks ago, I was looking through my bedroom window around midnight. The sky was completely covered with clouds. Around 23:55 I saw a red light in the sky moving from the north-east to the south. Thinking it was just a plane, I didn't really pay much attention to it, until I noticed it was impossible for a plane to be visible because of the cloudy weather and the red light didn't flinch like those of a plane would.

Because I'm an amateur astronomer, I grabbed by binoculars as fast as I could. When I was back at the window with my binoculars, the object was already halfway, so in the east direction. When I looked at the object I still had no idea what it was. It looked like an egg shaped object with a red light in it. Because it was very cloudy, I guess the light must have been very bright. Because no other objects were seen (stars, planes, ...) The object suddenly vanished and was never seen again.

I discussed this sighting with others, but no one come up with an answer to what it could be. After searching on the web, I found similar pictures of red objects in the sky. One of the which looked the most to what I've seen was also in Belgium and also around midnight.

Thanks for the help to resolve this mystery, it deeply concerns me.
