Is smoke. Maybe a fire...

If it is smoke the weather must be very windy. It doesn't look like smoke. It rather look like rocket, or maybe even small asteroid which is burning in atmosphere.

im going to have to agree with Dziki REX on that one, the trail is far too straight and it doesnt quite look like ground smoke... i think you may have found a meteorite during entry to our atmosphere, good work! ;-)

It looks like a fire to me.
Here's one in Suzuka Japan that is far straighter and longer. It extends over the entire width of a high res area so you can't see the source. Also notice the shadow to the north. I'm guessing its smoke from an industrial plant.
