Short rocket-like fireball near air force base.

We had just left a restaurant and were sitting in our car admiring the stars, when what looked like a rocket started pouring out flame from the back of whatever it was.

I say it looked like a rocket because of the way the flame shot out the back. There was no definable object. When it started, it looked just like a rocket fired from Cape Canaveral, slow and graceful. I am a prominent aircraft enthusiast, and nothing I have ever seen looked like what we saw tonight.
