Characteristics: The object changed color
Wobbly, starburst shape object moving across the sky

2 adults and one child enjoying a fire and looking at the night sky. We spotted a bright light, a starburst shape, that was high in the sky and moving in a SE direction. It was very bright at first. It was moving slowly in an erratic type motion, almost wobbling as it headed SE. It started to fade, then was just a spot of light. It turned red and then disappeared. At the same time we saw a meteor shoot across the sky, so it was markedly different than the meteor. We watched it for about 30 seconds.
