Duration:~10-15 (or 20 seconds?)
Glowing white cloud-like object sighted at night, dissipates into red haze and vanishes entirely.

We were flying down for landing when we noticed a strange object in the sky from the plane's window. At first it was primarily circular, with a white glow in the center and a slight red tint/outline (similar to that of a flare, but it was far larger, stayed in the air for far longer, and did not flicker or flash.) It seemed to last a while, and as time passed the object began to seemingly stretch and lose the white glow, obtaining a more oblong shape before dissipating and leaving a lingering red haze/glow. It is also important to mention that it was off in the distance so the size of it could have been relatively large. The number of witnesses is unknown but there could have been many, due to the fact that the event occurred in a city.
