Comet-like object, high in sky, set at \ angle, nearly vertical, stationary, no aircraft in sight.

Object was bright like a vapor trail. Very high in sky. At this angle (\) and about that long in relationship to its width. Looked like a comet or perhaps something burning up in atmosphere. I didn't get the feeling that this was an alien spacecraft, but either a natural phemomen, or maybe a man-made object buring up in atmosphere. One never know though. The light was white (exactly like a vapor trail).
