it looked like a missile but then it suddenly changed direction and sped toward the clear blue sky

on the above date at the above time (approx) i saw a plume of smoke traveling on the horizon. At first i thought it was a plane so i thought nothing of it untill i looked back about 2 minutes later and saw it stop and suddenly start traveling verticaly in a perfect right angle monuver i told the other people in the car who were traveling with me and no one could explain it. The only thing i could liken it to was a missile launch but i dont think a conventional missile can move at that angle. The sky was clear blue so it could be seen easily. After a few miutes it suddenly stopped and then started again a little higher and after a minute it just sped upwards and disapeared.
