I witnessed a some sort of octagon or circular shape shoot a beam of light in my backyard

I was standing in my backyard because I had to let my dog out. All of a sudden I seen some sort of beam of light. At first I thought it was lightening, but then I seen something strange, some sort of circlular or octagon shape. I glanced at the first light, rubbed my eyes and seen the shape kind of light up and it just hovered there. After about 15 seconds it flashed again and disappeared. I waited there for probably 20 minutes for something else but nothing showed up.
