Pretty sure that's a camera lens artifact. I say this, partially because that was what I immediately felt I was seeing before I realized those were the "clouds" you were talking about, but also because of the way they're situated all around the sun and seem to be moving outward from it in all directions as the sun slowly sets. They just seem too related to what the sun is doing to be actual clouds rather than an optical phenomenon.
Of course, I live in Florida, so I'm hoping anyway ;-)

I thought that at first, but the red clouds do follow the other clouds and the sun doesn't real move much in that 3 minute time frame. I am inclined to believ they were there and visible with the naked eye. Not sure about them being toxic.
