I'm going to go out on a limb here, but judging by what I have seen with my own eyes in the past, I think this is a photo of the setting sun shining through a small gap in an otherwise cloud covered sky. Sunset today was 15:58 GMT so my hunch tells me that this photo was taken between 15:30 and 15.58, earlier than the time stated in the thread title. With the heavy rain clouds we have in the UK at the moment, it would not be unusual to see this kind of effect.edit on 26-11-2012 by fiftyfifty because: (no reason given)

I don't think it could be a Chinese lantern as I previously suggested, because these two picture show it hanging around the same area over 25 minutes, according to the EXIF data.

What direction were you looking in ? It could be Jupiter rising, it's really bright in the sky at the moment.

hey buddy, im in livingston scotland and seen the same last week.
Having told friends the day later, that night the same bright red twinkling light was in the sky at the same spot. This is one of the most intense red lights in the sky i have seen, and ive watched the skies for many years.
Luckily my old man was with me this time when i saw it again. He stopped the car, scratched his chin and gave me a lesson on how to spot the ISS space station when its passing over. On checking with an i-phone app it confirmed it was the ISS we where looking at. This thing sat stationary for ever, just a hugh pusling red light with the glow coming off it in a diamond patern, brighter than anything in the sky.
