Duration:few seconds
An orange/gold ball of light hovered for a second then shot off at incredible speed directly over I-285 from west to east.

A gold-yellow/orange sphere of light hovered for a second and then flew off at an enormous speed directly over I-285 from i believe due west to due east, because it moved so fast it gave the illusion of a blurred contrail behind it as it moved. This object was very large and very bright. I would have dissmissed it as a shooting star however it stood still for a second, and not to mention its huge size. I lost sight of it as it went below the tree line. A lot of air traffic soon followed (probably the f-18's or F-15's from dobbins.
