stationary object opened from the bottom a spotlight type beam that slowly brightened /expanded then faded away slowly then up in sky

Was Driving on tabler Station road in the direction of airport rd. when my husband looked up and said what the hell is that? I looked up and a stationary round object opened up on the bottom and out came a bright beam that was like a spotlight and it got wider/expanded and brighter over seconds towards the ground then suddenly flashed at each 15 minute points of the clock then got spotlight shape again slowly widening and brightening at the same time, then slowly got thinner as it was fading slowly away then it seemed as if it ascended extremly fast into the clouds as if the clouds just sucked it up.then a plane took off from the airport and circled the area around where the object was.
