    My first thought was that you caught the recent Black Brant X launch from Wallop's Island on August 4, 2010 at 5:15 a.m. Your email didn't say it was today (Aug 5th). I've seen lots of flares, and I wouldn't characterize any of them as flame-like.

    Kevin's flare is more likely, I guess, but the timing is still an hour off.

    Heavens above shows a flare at around 5:27 am EDT. 
    At the time you give, the sun would be above the horizon.
