Egg shaped object over San Francisco

Around 5 pm, I was exiting the freeway (280-S)via the Geneva / Ocean off-ramp. I caught the red light - so I was at a complete stand still. I was facing southwest. The sky was relatively clear. I noticed this grey egg shaped object - flying west to east. It had no wings - no tail. At first I thought it was a helicopter - but it did not have the necessary parts (main rotor, tail rotor, etc.) - it was egg-shaped. It wasn't a plane - it had no wings or tail. I was at the stoplight for approx. 2 minutes. In that time, it flew from my right(west)to my left (east)and continued eastward. I am not able to determine speed - I did not hear any unusual noise - no was there any trace of a trail - there were no lights or beams coming from it either - and there were no other aircraft around it. There was a woman in the car next to mine - she rolled down her window - I know she saw it - her mouth was wide open - and she stuck her head out to view it. There was no time to share information - as soon as the light turned green I had to move fast. I called the San Francisco Chronicle and reported it. I have scanned the local papers and even Googled ever since - but it apparently didn't make the news.
