Bright white sphere on Sylmar Road

Was driving south on Sylmar Road, off to the left over a field saw bright white light about 45 degrees up on the horizon. It was sphere shaped and forming about a quarter of a mile from my car. Ball of light intensified and seemed to be getting larger. Then Sphere dove straight for the ground at very high rate of speed and then sharply reversed course in an arching pattern. Sphere continued upwards and disappeared behind cloud cover. I stopped at intersection of Slymar and Rt. 273, for few minutes but saw no further sign of the object. Absolutely did not resemble any aircraft or any other natural phenomenon I have ever seen. I was close enough to get a good look at it. It was an enlightening experience to say the least.
