Witness sees orange fireball w/ long yellow tail streak parallel to horizon.

Witness was sitting on her porch at approximately midnight, looking to the southwest across the city. Suddenly, an orange fireball, with a long yellow tail, appeared in the night sky, and moved from her right to her left in level flight just above the horizon. She stated that it suddenly appeared, and then equally quickly, disappeared from her sight. She emphasized that it was not any kind of aircraft, and she felt that it was incompatible with a meteorite.
