Bright Orange Fireball over Virginia Coast

On 11/6/15 around 9pm, I was standing outside talking on the phone and saw a bright orange light appear in the southeast sky. It appeared to originate over the Outer Banks of NC and proceeded to travel north until it reached approximately northern Virginia Beach, then turned directly east and disappeared into the clouds.

It was not very high in the sky (roughly half as high as any airplane lights that were also visible).

It also appeared to have flame-like characteristics and once every 5-10 seconds you could see a trail as if something was burning and releasing from the object.

The entire event lasted approximately 2 minutes.
