Large flame flickered across sky

While watching satellites at Gaviota State Beach, just to the South of Vandenberg AFB, saw a plume of fire traveled across sky from North to South. At first I thought it was an aircraft with the engine on fire.

This was not a streak of light like a meteor that flashes an burns out this was a flickering flame, the relative size of a large turkey feather held at arms length, that traveled across the sky.

There was no sound associated with this. I speculated that it might have been the booster rocket from the recent India moon shot.
