VERTICAL RAINBOW INSIDE GLASS LIKE TRIANGLE OVER PHOENIX

In the Western sky a large vertical rainbow appeared for quite some time, witin a huge whitish into translucent sharp edged two-sided with open center triangle. To the north of this incredible and stunning scene were a series of white similar in size triangles one above the other in also a vertical postion. The rainbow was very large and of equal width up and down with what I thought was the sun at the base of it-due to the brillance and size-but upon walking back out only a couple of minutes later I could tell the sun must be too low on the horizon...what is all this?? A jet appeared to be in the process of intersecting with the base of the rainbow upon second time out to look at it. I saw it on the news as they went into commercial, but did not catch if they had explained this very strange thing.
