Large light in eastern sky.

At 11:00 pm on Thursday, August 13, 2015, in the eastern sky, I saw a very large light in the sky. It was diamond shaped, the horizontal axis was elongated. It hung in the sky for a minute or two then slowly descended vertically until it disappeared on the horizon.

The night sky was very dark because there was no moon that night.

It was larger than any object I have ever seen in the sky except for the moon.
