Driving from Phoenix to Tucson Arizona,about half way (Marana, Arizona), Nov. 11, 1995

I looked toward Kitt Peak (the famous observatory 50 miles west of Tucson) and there was a second sun! It was the same diameter as the real sun and almost as bright.

I tried to figure out what this was (as an engineer who has actually done a project or two at Kitt Peak, and a pilot)-- maybe some kind of laser emission from one of their telescopes, but that doesn't seem very likely.

The light lasted for several miles of driving and didn't move (this is in the morning and broad daylight).

Driving attention took my attention away from it and I don't know how the event terminated.

If you know what this was, please let me know.
