Orange fireball with tail, like shooting star but much larger.

Object was glowing an orange color and trailing a bright orange tail, much like a comet. It moved from west to east at a fairly high rate of speed and disappeared behind some trees or over the horizon. Our guess is that it might have been some space junk on reentry and burning.
