fireball with orange tail across monterey county california sky 9-23-13

I was sitting on my couch at 7:30pm pacific time looking out of the window when I saw an orange streak in the sky. I watched it move slowly from north to south. I called my 18 year old son in to look at it too. He said it could be a jet and my 15 year old son said he thought it was a missile. It was a sparkling ball with an orange tail behind it. It went across the sky until it disappeared behind the mountain range. Within 5 minutes, I saw a jet following the same course in the same direction. I don't know if the jet was trying to follow the fireball or is it was unrelated.
