Low cloud layer looked overhead and saw slow moving white orb with blinking lights. Lights go out and dark shadow continues moving.

Low cloud layer from current storm provide a light backdrop. We are under LAX e/w flight pattern and are familiar with passenger jets sounds and visuals. In my backyard I look up and see the object, white orb with blinking red white and blue lights moving from south to north noiselessly. Then all lights disappear and I see a dark shape against the lighter clouds continue to move north. The dark shape then changes direction and heads west while appearing to descend. It continues west until it moves beyond the horizon. Time duration about three minutes.
