Saw a very bright light, pushed out halo of light

My wife and I saw a very bright light south of highway. Light was moving SSE. Light appeared to be behind mist as if in fog, but no clouds were in sky. Witnessed a plane fly in close proximity to bright light but did not have the same hazed effect. Object appeared to increase in speed after plane went by. Object suddenly grew in intensity of brightness then appeared to pulse out sphere of light that could be seen growing out from center like a ripple in a pond. Got binoculars on object as it was going over horizon at a very far distance. Could see two distinct lights. Called parents later to discuss. They live south of Pagosa Springs, CO approx 8 miles. They said they and my brother saw a very similar object about 30 min before we did. Said they viewed with binoculars and the object had what appeared to be a tower on top with multiple squares of light. Had a large rectangular or possibly cylindrical light source on bottom that was source of most of the light. They described the object pushing out light more as if it was pushing out mist that was lit up by the object.
