bright light that later appeared to be more like a rocket over the bay area with an enormous chem trail that was bell shaped

my husband saw a bright light with an enormous bell shaped chem trail in the sky. I saw the chem trail from east heading west towards the Pacific Ocean. Far above the vapor was a rocket like craft thousands of feet up. It went at a 45 degree angle towards the west above the bay area from the east heading west towards the pacific ocean. the bell shaped vapor was huge and smaller vapors were above it. when I saw it, I did not see the bright light. he thought it was a helicopter at first with a search light. But, when I looked, it clearly seemed more like a rocket going up into the atmosphere and he agreed with me at that point in time that that is what it looked like. We don't have a camera or iPhone to photograph it.
