2/3 of night sky filled with purple-pink light criss-crossing each other like a NET at Redding, CA

In Redding, California near the Sacramento River looking WEST (with Mt. Lassen at my back), about 5 A.M. every other morning for this past week, {with this morning being the 3rd sighting}.... I see something that fills 2/3 of the night sky. It looks like brilliant purple/pink lights criss-crossing each other and looks like a purple-pink "NET".

As it is summer time {July 2005} and 100 plus degrees, I have been sleeping outside under the stars. Last night I set my alarm so that I could see just what time this event actually started. Not at 2 A.m, not at 3 A.m., not at 4 A.M. Each time my Dog wakes me up when this strange event starts. It was there at about 5 A.M. this morning and continued even after daylight.... only the color was no longer there and the "criss-crosses looked like white smoke.

If anyone knows what I am seeing, would you please contact Peter so that he can contact me and let me know... thanks
