Bright orange tail shot across sky followed by moving star

There was a large, bright orange tail that flew above the field before what looked like a bright orange explosion, leaving what looked like a small star shooting off behind the trees.

Approximately ten minutes later, running perpendicularly to the first sighting, what appeared to be a moving star flew over the field, slower than the first. About midway over the field, the light lit up bright white for a few seconds, before continuing on, disappearing behind the trees.
