Saw sparkler type light with white plume out of top in Eastern sky about 60 degrees above horizon.

Was getting out of my car in supermarket parking lot. Looked to the East, noticed brilliant sparkling light with white plume coming out of the top. This object appeared to be stationary. Noticed to the left (North) two fast approaching aircraft also about 60 degrees on parrellel with object. As aircraft approached object it appeared to dissapear or shoot straight up at extreme rate of speed. At this point, aircraft changed position heading due East and dissapeared out of sight in a normal manner. Weather sky clear no clouds.
