flying wing type object in the los angeles area. 4:30am 8-16-04

i went outside at about 4:25 - 4:30am and observed an object moving from south to north at a very high rate of speed. i initially saw the object in the southern sky and it moved across my field of vision to the northern sky in approx 10 seconds. the object was somewhat "flying wing" shaped, almost rectangular....the color was white/grayish and the object had no visible lights and emitted no sound at all. the object was approx 1/4 - 1/2 the size of a full moon. i'm a very skeptical person by nature, and i am involved in aviation. i can identify most civilian and military aircraft as i fly for a living. i'm not koo-koo, i saw something that i can't explain. the object certainly didn't look like any type of aircraft i am aware of. this event took place a little bit east of the 405 fwy and 101 fwy interchange. the object appeared to be at an altitude of around 2000 feet. that's a guess on my part. there was no adverse electrical activity or anything like that. nothing happened to any of my appliances TV etc....just buisness as usual. my dog didn't have any adverse reaction or barking either (she was oblivious to what i was looking at) i felt pretty much confused after i saw the object....i wasn't scared at all, just baffled. weirdest thing i have ever seen. i do have to admit that i am constantly looking upwards. always had a fascination with astronomy etc... but have never seen anything that would qualify as a "UFO" -- until now. i was the only one that saw the object that i am aware of.
