Comet-like sighting in Northern California

My wife and I witnessed this while driving south early evening 11/7/15. We actually pulled over on the side of the road, on top of a hill, on Lotus Road, just south of Lotus, CA to witness the unusual sighting. Because of its linear path I predicted that it was a missile of some sort or a comet.

What was fascinating was the exhaust plumage funneling from behind the craft. The enormous exhaust plumage remained for a while - it looked like a giant mushroom, or a giant bell with complete with clapper. The object was moving from east to west.
