Long observation of a spectacular orange fireball with massively long trail, medium speed, split apart.

Bright orange fireball with very, very long orange/yellow fire trail. Low altitude, descending slowly from South to North direction. Too fast for a small plane. Too slow for a meteorite. Not big enough for an airliner. Split into 2 pieces before it disappeared in the trees/horizon, and then heard a soft distance. Boom ... Boom (1 sec apart).
