on Friday November 24th between 11 and 11:30 pm Central time. I was looking at 
the sky in the North East direction when I saw what I am assuming was a 
meteor. It lasted about 3-4 seconds. The tail was very long and multi colored 
and looked to be split down the middle. I saw this with the naked eye. I have 
seen plenty of shooting stars over the years as a matter of fact I saw one 
about an hour after this first sighting, so I don't think thats what it was. 
Can you tell me what I saw.
