I'm a truck driver and was picking up at american can in forest park, GA. It was about 2338 when I was backing up into a dock. I had my window down. The tail of my truck was facing due north and I was facing due south. Atlanta airport is close by and several aircraft are circling to land. Something caused me to look up and saw a cresent shapped object streeking across the sky. It was bright white and was leaving a brief trail behind it. It started going streight but then appeared to go upward. It lasted about 3-5 seconds at most. It appeared to be gaining speed and slightly rotating. It then disappeared. Sorta agh struck. Only though was "Kewl" what ((dleeted)) was that? Oh, there was no sound at all and it was about 1/3 the size of the moon.
