Bright light shooting in what appeared to be an upwards trajectory

An extremely bright light shot upward for a short period of time and vanished. Perhaps it was something mundane, but I wanted to report it in case others saw it as well and perhaps we can figure out what it was. It did not in any way look like a shooting star, and I don't think it was a firework. It was truly bright. It did seem to be shooting upward, but it is difficult to judge directions with no landmarks for bearings.
