Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object emitted beams
Bowl or saucer shaped craft in a playground

I was sitting at the dinner table with my children, who did NOT witness this. I had a clear view out of my livingroom window from this vantage point, and saw what I assumed was a reflection of my saucer-shaped livingroom light fixture. I didn't pay it much attention until I saw this 'reflection' increase in brightness. It began to project beams of light to the ground, from its perimeter. After a few seconds, the beams retracted back into the craft and individual lights around the outside of it began to blink out in a circular pattern until nothing was left visible.

At this point, I ran to the window and could see nothing. The craft was across the street from my house, to the left of a small storage shed at a playground. There was nothing in this area that could have made any sort of light, muchless a display like what I saw. I noticed that from where I was sitting, my livingroom light does not reflect in this window at all.. and even if it had, the c! raft was shaped like an upside down shallow bowl, and my light fixture is not turned in this manner.
