cigar shaped object pulsating brilliant white light

I was out watering my lawn, when I looked up and noticed a cigar shaped object flying in a NE direction. There was noting else in the sky. The sun was already down on the horizon but it was still light outside (dusk).

After watching about 2 seconds, the object lit up and "glowed" very white. This object had a distinct dark line in the middle of the craft and when it first "glowed" the front half of this thing appeared to glow first followed by the rear end of it following. The whole craft was illuminated and it went back to the original finish that appeared to be something like an airplane.

It pulsated twice now with both ends illuminating at the same time. The dark line in the middle stayed dark.

I turned toward the west to see if there was anyway that it was reflecting the sun but the sun wasn't even above the horizon and had it been reflecting the sun it would not have been such a brilliant white light. It was traveling faster than I hav! e witnessed airplanes traveling.

I witnessed another cigar shaped object in the identical place in the sky a few years ago, but it never "illuminated" like this one.
