Not particularly. Looks like a jet contrail disappating.

Would a series of three images change your opinion?

This reminds me of the famous 1972 Tetons meteor which was captured skipping
off the atmosphere by tourists filming. A still of the event, with people
gawking at it in the foreground, was published in a Nat'l Geographic in the
80s and is still one of the most incredible images I've ever seen. That
meteor was similarly south to north and exited the atmosphere somewhere
around Edmonton, Canada.
