An orange glow, which sometimes went out, and sometimes became very bright, was noticed by an eyewitness from the city of Bik (Limburg region).

He's writing:

I looked out the window and at first thought "wow, the sky is beautiful", but then I remembered that the sun had already set. And there was something like an orange light in the sky, as if it was a very big fire behind the houses, but there was no smoke, I didn't smell the fire, and the light kept going out, getting brighter, and then went out again.

Original news

Er was een oranje gloed en het doofde steeds en werd soms ook heel fel

BEEK, LB — Ik keek uit me raam en dacht eerst wow de lucht is mooi maar toen bedacht ik me dat de zon al onder was en ging beter kijken er was in de lucht een soort oranje licht alsof er achter de huizen een super groot vuur was maar er kwam geen rook vanaf je kon geen vuur ruiken en het licht doofde steeds en werd weer steeds feller en doofde erna weer ik heb een stukje gefilmd maar je kan het oranje niet helemaal goed zien maar je ziet nog duidelijk het knipperen in de lucht

Light sources on clouds

Lasers, searchlights, car headlights and other light sources of sufficient power can form a column of light in a dusty or foggy atmosphere, various patterns on low clouds, fog or haze. Also, the rays can highlight parts of the cloud, objects or birds, giving them bizarre shapes.

Searchlights can shine with one beam, several. They can be stationary, move, and also form spinning carousels on the clouds, which can change shape and color.

It often seems that the light source is located at the point where the beam hits the cloud, and not vice versa.
