Crescent Moon shaped object in Sacramento County California

Near dusk, I was driving down Elverta Road in Antelope California, and witnessed a crescent moon shaped object about 10 miles away. At first, I thought it was a single cloud, and noticed there were no other clouds near the object. The object was a bit blurry with a definite crescent shape. The object was white, with no other colors. The object then appeared to get larger and closer. As the object got closer it looked less like a cloud, however remained its crescent moon shape. The object also appeared to rise in the sky. I noticed a few people on the street looking at the object. I turned onto Watt to pick up my daughter from cheerleading. I returned to Elverta road, but saw nothing in the sky. I then drove back toward home to turn around hopefully to see and explain the object; however, no object was in the sky. Clouds do not just disappear. I have no explanation for the object. Due to not having a camera with me, I was unable to get a photograph o! f the object.
