Light from west to east that diminished and disappeared at about a 110 degree angle.

I was watching above the Olympic mountains and saw a star about a 1/4 the brightness of Venus come from west to east across the sky above our home. I thought it might have been a satellite as the speed was similar to low orbit satellites I've seen before ( but about half again as fast). As it passed me ( about 110 degrees vertical from us) it quickly dimmed and diminished in size (i.e. rising). There was no aircraft sound and satellites I've seen before can easily be tracked across the sky with minimal change in magintude. It was definitely different.
