Duration:30+ seconds
Oval shaped disk w/15 degree increase towards center top; bright light w/thin beams extended to its side; shot up & disappeared.

This citing occurred on Monday, June 27, 2016 at 5:50 P.M. in Phoenix, Arizona.

I was driving home going west on Bell Road, past the 51 Freeway by a few minutes. I stopped for a red light. There were monsoon clouds in the distance, but something closer caught my eye as I was waiting. This "cloud" was unusually bright--white. I looked at it and realized that it wasn't a cloud--it was too small in the foreground, very white/illuminated, and had a very distinctive (not blurry around the ends like a cloud) shape. The light was shaped like a skinny oval. From the top, the oval wasn't flat but graduated up towards the center about 15 degrees. Suddenly, from each end a beam of a similar bright light (thin like a string) shot out at the same time then this "shape" shot straight up and was gone.
