It appeared to leap into space almost institaniously

I was attending a drive-in movie when i looked up in the sky and noticed what i thought was a airplane. I then noticed that it was moving much to slow to be an airplane. I thought maybe a helicopter thats when it flew off. When i say it flew off i don't just mean that it flew away into the curviture of the night sky ,i mean that it went up and out into space very, very fast,almost instintaniously from its spot low in the sky to the stars. Now i am definately not a expert in aviation but for a plane to pause then almost leap into space and disappear into the darkness of space at that speed is impossible. It went straight up and out. I had never seen any thing like it in my life.
