Saw a fast moving arrowhead shaped object, glowing from bottom, appear and disappear, moving horizontally.

I saw an arrowhead shaped object moving horizontally through the clouds in the northeastern sky, mid horizon level, in Tucson, Arizona on 11:49AM on Sunday October 5th. It seemed fairly close, and also appeared to be large. It was moving at a fast speed and was silent.

It appeared out of nowhere, glowed brightly in a flickering way (but with a substantial bottom illuminated), moved quickly, and then disappeared. The glowing didn't appear to be propelling the object, it just moved quickly. The object was darker toward the top.

At first I thought it may have been a spotlight going through the clouds, but it was clearly an object with depth and dimension.

I see a lot of planes around Tucson, living on the flight path to TIA, but no plane I know could do what this object did without making a sound. And this object simply was not shaped like any plane I've seen. It had an almost primitive shape, but behaved in an extraordinary way.

There also appeared to be parallel lines wrought through the clouds near where the object was sighted, but this may have been just a cloud formation. I did not see the object make these streaks. And there was no trail left directly behind where I actually saw the object.
