Disk of light with a crescent of rainbow colored lights

I was taking my grandchildren home from school yesterday, 12/19/2019.We were traveling west along Northpark Dr. in Kingwood, Texas at about 3:45 or so in the afternoon.We were caught in slow moving traffic, and I noticed the most unusual sight.

At first I thought I was looking at the sun through cloud cover.  On the left side of the sun-like object there was a crescent of rainbow colored light covering maybe the disk, like the sliver of a crescent moon.  The rainbow light glowed a bit outside of the disk area.

I thought it was the sun and maybe there were ice crystals in the atmosphere diffracting the light making the very unusual image.  Then I looked around the solid part of the windshield and noticed the actual sun shinning further south.  It was close to the disk.  I really don't know how far away it was.

The disk did not move or change.  It held its perfectly disk-like shape for several minutes.  I asked the girls to look at the disk and the sun, making sure that my mind wasn't playing tricks on me.  They both saw the same thing.

By the time I could get to my purse and phone, the image was fading.  It didn't zoom away or disappear, it just faded.  But the perfect round geometic form never morphed.

I don't know what this was, but in all of my 62 years I have never seen anything like it.

Thanks so much for having a site like this.Peace.
