Yes the sky does appear to be red.
Saw a light phenomena of the sky last night, and the northern lights as it was very cloudy. So how do the clouds on the horizon to the north was getting a little orange-red, thought it might burn anywhere but this light grew bigger and bigger. So I ruled out also that the sun would be the culprit. Nor the moon gives me such light. Would estimate that about 1 / 6 of the sky was orange-red like the most. Then thinned out the candles disappeared as the big puffs of smoke and strings across the sky and then disappear. All this happened in about 30 minutes. Approximately 21.00 - 21.30, this occurred in northern Sweden.
Inspection of the area surrounding Madrid reveals that the effects of light pollution caused by a single large conglomeration can be felt up to 100 km (62 mi) away from the center. Global effects of light pollution are also made obvious. The entire area consisting of southern England, Netherlands, Belgium, west Germany, and northern France have a sky brightness of at least 2 to 4 times above normal (see above right). The only places in continental Europe where the sky can attain its natural darkness is in northern Scandinavia and in islands far from the continent. In North America the situation is comparable. From the east coast to west Texas up to the Canadian border there is very significant global light pollution.
The thing that interests me the most is the increase in frequency. The first winter I noticed it, I saw the phenomena a handful of times. This winter, the sky gets bright red almost nightly (sometimes it will dim & get bright again more than once in a night)... But as I said earlier, this winter the sky seems to almost always have a red cast during the night.

So these were taken on my phone & the quality is not good (sorry!) but I think it gives the general idea. The quality of the 2nd video is even worse , BUT I think the color of the sky in the beginning & end of the clip are much closer to the color it looked in person.
