Northern Lights or something else?

Good Morning All!

I headed out to a dark area of Central Pennsylvania last night to see if I could capture the Northern Lights with my Sony A74. I did grab these pictures, but I’m wondering if it is in fact the Northern Lights or if it is not something else. For instance, to me, it looks incredibly similar to images I captured during a sounding rocket test last Summer.

The firs picture is looking almost due West while the second two have a little more northerly view. The red never really moved at all. I photographed at both locations for approximately an hour and the coloring remained the same throughout that time. I’ve only really seen the Northern Lights once in my life so I’m not familiar with them at all. It just seems odd that they would appear in a more westerly direction an hour and a half after sunset.

Any thoughts are very much appreciated and thank you in advance!
