Spock's torpedo casket did do a short initial glow before it glided into the Genesis atmosphere.
One wonders if the glow, with its atypical tail, wasn't purely for show...
Perhaps something like the decorative smoke that trails behind a fighter plane during a airshow. The red glow was ceremonial and deliberate. It was the same general color as the officer's uniform jacket.

Traditionally employed during funerals.
