Bright light in the stars with a jagged tail

We were taking night photos of the stars with a 50mm lens on a Canon EOS Rebel T2i by laying the camera lens up and setting it to take long exposure shots. In one photo we caught a small unknown image. The stars all show up as single dots, but there is one very bright light with a tail that is in a curved, non-uniform line. We did not view with our eyes, we discovered the image after we looked at the photo the next morning.
