It looked like a football stadium flood light structure

My background is... quiet. I thought I never would be sharing an experience I couldn't reasonably explain. However, since this happened tonight, I can't focus on anything else. First, I noticed what I took to be an exploding star in the east as I was driving home at approximatley 19 hundred hours (7:15pm, Jan. 20th, 2004. Moments later as I came to the end of one road and make a right I spotted my neighbor's dog crossing at this intersection, and escorted her safely home. Then I was back in my car, backing out of my neighbor's driveway. As I swung my car around and cleared the side of their home, and now crossways in the road, directly in front of me is an access road leading down around the back of my neighbors home to a backyard area (small meadow). Anyhow, about 1/4 of a football field in front of me, and directly straight up, about 1/3 length of a football field was what looked like a light fixture one would see at a football stadium. It had three or four large lenses, (side by side) each a medium-bright glowing white light. It did not have a "beam" that blinded me, but just hung there and was bright and glared. I looked beyond the side of the lights to glimpse at what was holding this up there. What I saw was an outline showing that it curved away and behind the "set of lights". I pulled my car ahead and to the side of the road trying to keep an eye on it to get a better look through my passenger side window....when it just disappeared. I was at their home for only a few minutes to deliver their dog to them and it wasn't there when I took the dog home. I came home; called my neighbor, and went back to their home to discuss and point out what I had seen. They, like me, are mystified.
