Silver cigar-shaped UFO hangs over Santa Monica Beach

I was driving home from work on the 10 freeway going west into Santa Monica and we had just changed over to Daylight Savings time. It was approximately 6:15PM/PST and I was listening to news radio and happened to see a rather large silver, cigar-shaped UFO hanging a bit low in the sky ahead, probably over the Santa Monica beach shoreline. I was not too far from my exit and this luminous object was so present and transfixing that I could hardly keep my eyes on the road. It was VERY visible, just hanging in the sky and there was no cloud/fog cover. I am not in the habit of looking for UFO's on my drive home from a busy work day, so seeing this strange object was really a surprise (I found out later, after the sighting, that UFO's have been known to be cigar-shaped). The object hung in the sky for about 10-15 minutes and then simply disappeared-out of sight.
