Bright white circular light with a long orange tail moving quickly westward across the sky

I was standing on the corner of 85th St. NW and 24 Ave. NW, in Seattle, WA, absentmindedly looking north. I turned my head and caught an extremely bright white circular light with a long orange tail traveling westward across the sky. I only noticed it after it has halfway across the exposed view of the sky and it quickly traveled out of view. No sound was heard.

About 30 seconds later a helicopter or aircraft followed on a similar path.

I've never submitted a UFO report before and would certainly believe if it was a human made object. I have observed shooting stars before and this was significantly larger and brighter than anything I've ever seen.
