Bright yellow/ornage fireball going W to E across the Northern sky.

Something went across the northern sky (W to E) so bright that it reminded me of an old fashioned comet illustration. Very bright with a long tail. I have a standard size window facing north and it completely filled the window pane. I watched for a moment then went outside and it was gone...but interestingly as I was watching the sky 2 different planes went across going the same direction, from the west to the east. I've watched many a meteor shower and have never seen anything like this!
