We were flying to Palm Springs from Minneapolis. We had just earlier flown over the Grand Canyon when my partner got my attention and asked, what do you think that is? I stopped watching my movie and stared into a bright ball of light that was shining through a very hazy sky. I tried to recognize what it could be... a jet flying toward us? a volcano erupting? It seemed to be hovering near a mountain range. I quickly grabbed my camera while keeping my eyes on the object. As I watched the screen while trying to focus, I was alarmed by a very clear honeycombed pattern! I was unable to capture that image, but I've never seen anything quite like that. A smaller object then flew from the the larger object, appearing to be headed in our direction.
I continued to stare until we flew out of sight.
I'll attach a few photos in the order that I took them.
