A Mysterious Red Glow Over The Atlantic Ocean Leaves Pilot Baffled

We all see amazing views when flying, but some are more extraordinary than others. A pilot flying over the Atlantic noticed one of these, according to a post shared on Reddit. 

The caption says, "Curious red glow seen over the Atlantic, pilot says he’s never seen anything like it. Via July 2022." 

A Scary red glow 

The images show an almost scary red glow that cannot be explained. This did not stop people from commenting on the thread with their own thoughts on what the phenomenon may be. 

One Redditor said "Maybe fishing vessels have never clustered so much to concentrate so much light? Three possible Scene. 1. Fish populations down to small concentrations. 2. Chinese fishing boats have fished out the Pacific and are now factory fishing in the Atlantic. 3. Atlantic-based fishing boats have acquire China's factory fishing strategy. None of these are good outcomes. Good luck to those fish," 

Others ventured a guess that it may be the end of times.  Another Redditor said "If I'm not wrong, the first DOOM game was set in 2022, so this is it. There comes the demons. There is the end..."  

"It's so hot the ocean is getting wildfires now," said one seneitive commenter. 

Many made comparisons to the TV series Stranger Things. 

"Dustin's trying to open up a portal to the upside down - It is literally a watergate," said a Redditor. 

A alike sighting in 2014 

A alike phenomenon was spotted in 2014 by pilot JPC Van Heijst. "In the night of 24-25 August 2014, I flew a 747-8 from Hong Kong to Anchorage. 

While flying over the vast Pacific Ocean, somewhere southeast of the Russian Kamchatka Peninsula, I had one of the weird experiences of my life. Around five hours into our flight with Japan a long time behind us, we were cruising at a comfortable 34.000 ft with about four and half hours to go towards Alaska. Over the radio, we heard Air Traffic Control talking to other planes that were heading for the US West Coast about diversions due to major earthquakes in San Francisco," wrote the pilot.

He then went on to describe what he saw in the sky. "I noticed a deep red/orange glow appearing in front of us, and this was confirmed when I looked at preview of the photos on the back of my camera. There was supposed to be nothing but endless ocean below for hundreds of miles around us. They firstly appeared as a distant city or group of typical Asian squid fishing boats, but this did not make sense in this area. 

The lights we saw were much larger in size than your average city or group of boats, but they also glowed red and orange, instead of the normal yellow and white that cities or ships would produce," described the pilot. "The closer we got, the more intense the glow became, brighten the clouds and sky below us in a weird orange glow that you would expect with a massive fire on the ground. In a part of the world where there was supposed to be nothing but water." 

Could the same mysterious phenomenon that resulted in this sighting in 2014 be responsible for today's events?
