Immense Light Near Phoenix Northwest Valley

I was driving home and noticed a large white/off white ball of light toward the Goodyear/Avondale area. My first thought was that it was an aircraft because that would be looking toward the Luke AFB vicinity.

But then I noticed plane lights close by to this object and the size difference was immense. If the plane lights were dime size, this thing was quarter size.

Then while I watched the object hover a source of light shot up from it. At this point it looked like a shooting star with a tail, but it wasn't moving or falling.

I lost site of it while driving past buildings and did not see it again.
