Lit object spotted near aircraft.

My husband and I were traveling north on Travis when I happened to look at the sunset and noticed what looked like a star moving across the sky. I though it might be an airplane with the sun glinting off it. Then I saw an actual plane a little further west and it looked exactly like an airplane should. I turned my attention back to the star object and it seemed to turn sideways. Once it did that, the light was gone from the object and it looked like a dark ball which had been pinched in on either side, almost a rounded convex shape. Then it completely disappeared. It didn't speed off, but winked out.
