Location: Salem, OR
Shape: Light
Duration:2-3 minutes
Strange lights -- moving and not moving -- seen in skys over Salem, OR

A light about the brightness of Jupiter appeared just below and to the right of the Big Dipper Constellation. It went out in just a couple of minutes. Then about 15 minutes later another light appeared, but this one just flashed once -- it appeared to be in the same place as the first one.

Then, maybe 5 or 10 minutes later saw a dim light traveling south-southwest slowly from the same general area but further to the east than the first sighting. Thought at first it was a satellite....but it slowly arched towards the southwest until it blinked out near the horizon.
