Bright light shining directionally out of a cloudy shape or object, got bright and smoky and then disappered.

It was well after sunset and I went to the window of my hotel room to see the lights of the city and I saw what I first thought to be a helicopter shining a searchlight. As I watched it I realized I could not really see and object but a very bright light shining out of a smoky or hazy shape, moving west to east, light pointed to the north, not at the ground but horizontally to the north. It was almost as if a door or hatch was opened and a bright light inside was shininh out of the opening. It seemed to be emminating from a small cloud (sky was clear) or just a patch of haze. The was smoke billowing all around it which was illuminted by the shining light. THe light then got brighter and the whole area just disappeared leaving a clear sky, no smoke, no haze no cloud ,,,nothing, it was just gone, I had the sensation that it had collapsed into itself
