9:23 PM Sunday April 17, 2016 Johns Creek, GA. Clear skies with 3/4 moon & 65 degree temperature. While walking my dogs in my front yard I noticed what appeared at first to be a very bright star at 340 degrees NNW about 40 degrees above the horizon but I didn���t remember a star anywhere near that bright in that part of the sky and it seemed like it was moving. As I continued to observe it I realized by comparing it to a star at about 325 degrees NNW that it was moving very slowly, a bright white light about 4 times bigger than the biggest celestial body in the sky (besides the moon) and about twice as bright and also appeared to be getting brighter. I thought it might be the space station since I could hear no sound from the object and it was too big and bright to be an airplane. Observed it for a couple of minutes as it passed almost directly overhead until it was at about 100 degrees ESE and about 40 degrees above the horizon where it began to rapidly diminish in brightness so that within about 5 seconds it disappeared completely. It was within an area of dim stars above the tree line and no clouds were visible anywhere in the sky. That surprised me as it could not have descended below the plane where the sun would reflect off of it unless it was much lower and (if an aircraft) should have been able to have been heard. I continued to observe the area where the object disappeared for 15 or 20 seconds to see if it would reappear or for any other sign of it, but I saw nothing else.
