Thick strand of light flying across the sunsetting sky at high speed

Osaka Bay area - we were onboard a ferris wheel in mid air when I noticed a thick, but bright strand of light against the sunsetting sky. It did not appear to be a plane at all but rather, it seemed more like a comet/ burning fireball with a flaming tapered tail. We could tell that the object was flying at very high speed even from a fair distance away due to the flickering of light... The light was constant and DID NOT fade in and out... we have a digital image of this image, however, because it was taken from afar, it is a little difficult to see (unless enlarged!).
