Egg UFO over Hollywood Hills and LAX in LOS ANGELES, CA.

I was driving south-bound on Laurel Canyon Blvd. near where it crosses Moorepark Rd. in Los Angeles, CA. From this direction, I know it is possible to see aircraft that are departing LAX and making their way into the eastbound airways, but what I saw was nothing like any aircraft I have ever seen.

Anyway, I was driving south on the road mentioned before and I noticed a small, gray egg-shaped aircraft moving very slowly across the sky and to the east. I paid no mind and dismissed it as a plane leaving LAX. But the sun caught the side of it and it glimmered very brightly, and this restored my attention in the craft.

I don't know why I decided to keep watching, but as I started to examine the craft, I noticed it had no wings; just a very shiny egg-shaped craft. It then made a quick detour from its' eastbound path and darted up (north?) for a second.

What happened next is the most puzzling part of my sighting; the craft then stopped in mid-air, and it looked as if it moved toward my direction, then it suddenly departed south at a rate so fast that it looked like it just shrunk (though I'm guessing it looked as if it shrunk because it moved AWAY from me so quickly). That was the end of the sighting. It lasted maybe 10-20 seconds from the time I noticed it.
