Fast moving object , possible cigar shape

Early in the morning while walking into work I was looking up at the sky since it was clear with many stars out and noticed a small, fast moving light in the North-East portion of the sky.It was bluish-white and at first I only thought it was a satellite when all of a sudden it made a dive towards the ground while at the same time making a sharp arc down and to the left, nearly reversing it's direction of travel. I would compare it to watching a kite dive at the ground, this moved extremely fast. I had the impression it was large and had a blue-white light in the center with two elipses illuminated at either end, it seemed to have a possible cigar shape to it. While making it's dive and turn it just faded quickly.

The whole event lasted between 3-4 seconds, I was stunned at the speed this object moved at.

I am not positive on this time frame because I hesitated to report this but I am quite certain that what I saw was out of the ordinary and also similar to another California report for September.
