Bright burning object with tail originating in northern sky heading east.

Orangeish colored object with a tail originating in the northern sky. Lost tail on the way heading east. Regained tail briefly in the northeastern sky then seemed to explode.

((NUFORC Note: The description seems to us to be not inconsistent with a contrail behind a high-flying aircraft, which is reflecting the setting sun.))
