Duration:5 seconds
On Wednesday night, September 21, 2016, @ 7:40PMCT, about 40 minutes after sundown, I was viewing the sky from the middle Tennessee area, looking in the far North West of a clear sky and I saw a star like object appear as bright as Venus for about 4 to 5 seconds, and gradually disappear. The sighting appeared to be stationary, not moving in any direction, simply appeared and disappeared.

I am wondering if this sighting could have been a caused by the reflective surface on a geostationary or communication satellite?
