Saw bright light shoot up in sky near Lansing, Michigan

I was out driving around at night and decided to pull over at the weigh station located just east ((west)) of Lansing on I-96 heading westbound. The sky was clear and the stars were full and bright. I was looking toward the north at what seemed like just a collection of stars. Suddenly one of these "stars," broke formation and shot straight up. It started slow at first then gained speed until it was out of sight. The object what a bright white in color and did not pulse or change color.

((CORRECTION))

HELLO,
I JUST WANTED TO EMAIL YOU TO MAKE A CORRECTION ON MY ACCOUNT. THE UFO ACCOUNT THAT I HAD NEAR LANSING, MICHIGAN IS POSTED IN YOU MAY 2001 DATABASE. IN THE POSTING IT READS AS IF I WAS AT THE WEIGH STATION JUST EAST OF LANSING ON I-96 WEST. IT SHOULD READ THAT I WAS AT THE WEIGH STATION JUST WEST OF LANSING ON I-96 WEST.

THANKS FOR CLEARING THAT UP FOR ME MR. DAVENPORT.
