Weird cigar-shaped UFO in Olympia, USA

On July 19, 2015, a person was smoking a cigarette in Olympia (State of Washington) when he has noticed a dark black cigar-shaped object. UFO had a steady white light at one end and a blinking red light at the other end. What is it?

Witness report:

I was sitting on the steps of my apartment in Olympia, WA smoking a cigarette while facing the western sky at approx. 11:30 PM PST when I observed a long cigar shaped object that was blacker than the night sky moving from the south to the north.

I couldn't make out any features of the craft but it was completely noiseless and had one small steady white light at the rear of the object while the front had a small blinking red light.

Whatever it was, it seemed pretty large. I'd guess that it was about a mile away but if it was further away then it must have been even larger. It was moving fairly slowly at first, almost hovering when I first saw it, but then it picked up speed and disappeared behind a very large stand of trees on the adjoining property.

At first, I thought it might be a blimp for a second but when it speeded up, it moved faster than a blimp is capable of; I've seen a few of them over the years and this object speeded up more rapidly than a blimp can.

We are pretty close to Joint Base Lewis McChord here so I suppose it could have been military but it also met the definition of a UFO, that much is certain.
