Cigar shaped craft, extremely faint with lights flashing from left to right and back.

Around 8:45pm on Saturday night myself and another witness were on our patio outside when we noticed a faint cigar/straight line of something white that appeared to be wavering, as an asphalt road looks in the distance in extreme heat. The sky was clear with no clouds visible. It moved very slowly, appeared to be high altitude and was changing directions. Being next to LAX we could easily compare it and it's movement to other familiar aircraft flying by in the sky. Every now and then very faint lights could be seen flashing from left to right and back again in a single row along what we could view as the body of the object. It's body position did not remain parallel to the horizon as other aircraft flying by were. At the final point we viewed it, it was perpendicular to the horizon.
