It appeared from my vantage point to be like a large metorite but it was traveling too slow and the angle was all wrong. My best description would be like a red plume shaped nike logo with a bright Star at the top.

It appeared from my vantage point to be like a large metorite but it was traveling too slow and the angle was all wrong. I was facing south as the object moved in a west to east direction. My best description would be like a red plume shaped nike logo with a bright Star at the top. As i marveled at this the rest of the plume burst into bright stars (aprox. 12 to 15 of them) like the one at the top; they simulteaniously got bright and then dimmed slightly but continued to shine inside the plume. I snapped out of it and thought to get my camera upstairs but when i came back downstairs the object was behind the tree line and not visible. If anyone in the Austin area saw this please let me know.
