A cigar shaped obect suddenly appeared out of nowhere, a light pulsed along it's length from right to left, the object faded and then disappeared without having changed position.

A solid object suddenly appeared over I-5 near the Shorleine exit. It came into view without having traversed the sky. It was stationary against a clear blue sky. At arms length it would have measured one inch long by 3/16 inches high. It was solid grey with visible highlights and shadows. A band of whitish light started movng from the right end along it's length to the left end, when it reached the left end it started over on the right side. The band of light repeated this several times and then the object suddenly faded -there were no clouds, no mist to obscure it's view. The object still sat stationary and the band of light was still pulsing along it's length, the only change was that the object no longer exhibited visible hightlights and shadows, it had a fuzzy out of focus appearance. It then suddenly vanished without having changed it's position, shape or behavior.
