You are thinking of Nick's idea about the Roof of Manarlavus (from the Glorious ReAscent). I do believe that this is what the Dara Happans think the glowline as is.

Doesn't apply to the Red Moon (the Blue Streak, Entekos or other Planets for that matter). The Red Moon lies at the boundary between the lower and middle air (but I've heard Stephen Martin suggest that within the glowline, the moon actually appears at the border between the middle and upper air).
