Meteor-type object travel up-ward, out of wooded area.

As I was driving home from Boston on Rt. 2 West, I saw what appeared to be a meteor.

The odd thing about this is that the object was rising out of the woods to my left and accelerated into the sky. The object was about 1/4 mile away and left the woods with a sky-ward trajectory at a great rate.
