Well, if you had seen it, you probably would have called it a contrail
(and a lot bigger than a poi pounder, I'm sure <g>).

"We saw a glow going over us, just like an airplane."
For one to two minutes, the paddlers watched the object move across the
sky, leaving a trail of smoke before it disappeared behind Haleakala.
