Characteristics: Left a trail

It made a 90 degree turn at a high rate of speed, and disappeared through the atmosphere.

It was a perfectly blue sky, no clouds in sight. A friend and I were looking in a northwest direction above the horizon, when we noticed a very fast moving object heading north along the coast. It was too far away to describe a shape, but appeared to leave a white tail. As it was gaining in altitude, after traveling 5 or 10 miles, it suddenly made a 90 degree turn (I mean, a complete left angle)heading upward in a west direction and quickly disappeared through the atmosphere. There was no sound. It was incredibly fast and quiet!
