White cigar shaped above Oakland airport

Around 5pm on Monday July 27th, 2013 I looked out my window and saw a very slow moving white cigar shaped object in the sky. I am in Oakland, close to Lake Merritt, the object was East of me, almost above Oakland airport, going North. It did not seem to glow or anything, it was simply white against the grey background of the clouds.

At first I thought it was an elongated blimp of some sort, as it seemed larger than a plane, but flying way too slow to be a plane. Then it sort of shrunk itself from end to end to the point of disappearing in a matter of 5 seconds, tops. The whole event lasted 20 to 30 seconds.
