Glows after a shuttle launch?

I watched a shuttle launch in Florida and a couple of hours later I saw a really bright glow high up in the sky way up above the cloud tops. I was wondering what it was?


The shuttle is just burning hydrogen and oxygen which produces water and then a cloud similar to the way an aeroplane does. If the light caught it correctly as time went by, or it might not have even condensed properly for a while and then the light caught it, hence the glow a while later.
