Location: Salem, OR
Shape: Light
Duration:4 seconds
Observed slowly moving white light at 10:40 pm heading north from direcly overhead

Observed a REALLY SLOWLY moving white light (as bright as Venus) heading north from directly overhead that lasted 4 seconds before gradually fading out.

It took me a second or two to realize that it was actually moving.

I checked the schedule for "Iridium Flares" and none were supposed to be in the vicinity at that time.

I have never seen a satellite moving that slowly.
