White, vertical cigar shape floating around in the eastern sky.

From the jacuzzi at the MGM Grand pool area, myself and 12 other friends all saw a small white-ish vertical cigar shape in the eastern sky, looking over the roof of the convention center. It looked to be at least 2 miles away, at approximately 55 degrees altitude from our posiion. My first thought was that it must be an elongated weather balloon, but it changed shape in weird fashion. It went from being clearly defined, to very blurry, as if it were vibrating violently. It also lengthened and shortened slightly. It appeared only to move slightly left (north) then right (south) a few times before moving off south and east, moving out of our view behind the building. What amazed me was that all the people I was with looked up at it after I spotted it, then looked away as if they had seen nothing at all. But here was this clearly unexplainble thing floating in the sky!! It reminded me of that footage from Florida of the floating metallic cylinder over the water...
