An unusal round object taking off with white blaze

I have seen a round object with white blaze coming out taking off from a distance of approx. 3mi, Initially I thought it is a firework, then released its something unusual. It was taking off and going above at an angle of 40 degree.

After 10 seconds I realized it doesn't look like firework. I took my phone out and was able to capture a video of only 21sec as my mobile battery got dead. But I have seen it going up for further 10-15sec.

I know their is no airport so it can't be airplane taking off. It can't be firework as it was going up with relatively less speed and lasted really long.

I have not seen taking it off from ground, when i saw i guess it was already 30-40ft above ground and looks like it has taken off like a flight.

I am not sure it was a UFO or not but it was not an airplane, not a toy, not a firework but something unusual.
