Something burning up in the morning sky?

I was walking to work in the morning. I walk about 6 blocks east. I am looking into the sun as it is rising, very orange and pleasant to look at. In the sky about 40 degrees or so above the horizon I see an contrail. It caught my interest because of all the chemtrails, but this was very high, like a real contrail. I thought it was a jet out of selfride air national guard base most likely. The contrail wasnt very long, but the object glowed orange like the sun. I figured the jet was shiney and reflecting the rising sun, but then it disappeared along witht he contrail. I then noticed a second contrail like the first but south a bit from the first. It was doing the same thing, then glowed the same and disappeared. This was likely something entering the atmosphere, like meteorites or perhaps it was a couple jets. It seemed odd for them to just disappear along with the contrail, and the contrail seemed short if it was a meteorite burning up. I thought I would post this and see if anyone else saw it or knows what it was.

((NUFORC Note: Report seems to us to be reminiscent of normal contrail activity. PD))
