Location: Phoenix, AZ
Shape: Light
Duration: 3-4 Minutes
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object emitted beams, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
Several beams of light vanished and leave only clouds of smoke.

What I observed was not an object rather 5-7 beams of light shining down to earth as if probing for a target. The beams were moving in all directions scanning the earth. What made me rule out that they were not helicoptors was that they were extremely high yet I was amazed at the powerful beam of the light to shine dowm from that far of a distance. I remember it freightened me so I moved behind a shed thinking I was out of the vision of the beams if it made it to my direction. After viewing the beams for a few minutes a small airplane flew over to the direction of the lights and when it lined up between me and the lights the lights seemed to just go "puff" and vanished away leaving only clouds of smoke where each beam of light had previously been. I stood in awe and a bit dumb struck at the same time trying to figure out how to evaluate what I'd just seen. Oh, how I wished someone had been with me to observe this sight!
