Bright object that flew away quickly

Bright object suddenly appeared in clear night sky and was moving at what looked like a normal speed of an airplane but object was quickly getting dimmer and appeared to be moving away, toward the direction of Zeta Cassiopeiae. Object was apparently traveling away from Earth at a very high speed. Object was no longer visible after about 4 seconds. The object remained bright white and did not flicker, blink, or emit any meteor-like trail. Do not believe it was a 'shooting star' or any known aircraft.
