    Are you saying it was in the sky for about 12 minutes?  Or are you saying you first noticed it
    somewhere between 11pm and 11:12pm?  How many seconds was it in the sky?  If less
    than 20 seconds it was surely a meteorite and you should report your observation at

    once again I appologize for the lack of proper coordinates.  Watched a red, very red object to the NNE of my location from
    11pm-11:12apx began at 11 at apx 30 degrees altitude and ended at 80 degrees. ( 38.7061N, 121.3150W)
    Local Time: Pacific Standard Time (GMT - 8:00)
    
    my location in northern california.
    the object was very red and had a plume (this was the red presumably)  as it ascended I distinctly observed the object split two
    times.  The part of the missile that dropped off moved south very rapidly then dissapeared both times.  The main part of this
    unknown missile after each split dimmed and then brightened again.  I am having no luck finding out what this very red missile is
    but if anybody knows I,m sure you'all would.
    P.S. Any help on making proper observations would be greatly appreciated.
    thanks
