|A triangle shape of 3 rapidly flashing blue-white lights moving slowly over downtown Salem, OR
I was driving on Mission Street heading west in downtown Salem with my 2 ½ year old son. I heard a low humming sound and looked up to see a triangle of bright white-blue rapidly flashing lights.
The craft didn’t appear to be much bigger than a prop plane. The craft was flying slowly (25 mph) due west at a low elevation. The lights were moving in a clockwise rotation.
I called my husband at home (we live 1 mile south of downtown). He went outside saw it as well, moving towards the West Salem hills.
I drove home and we watched it until it made a turn north and moved slowly out of sight.
I called the Salem Municipal Airport and the woman there said there were no aircraft over Salem at that time.
