Bright flying object spotted near downtown Salem, OR

A friend and me were heading to downtown on 12th street. At first when I saw it, I thought it must be a street light at a distance, just a trick of positioning.

But what I saw was in the sky, and my friend saw it too. It was absolutely not a plane, helicopter, or any other sort of aircraft either of us had ever seen. It was a very bright goldish light, fairly big in size. I thought it was more circular but my friend said it looked like a cylinder.

Either way, we both saw it fly quickly towards the right and then out of sight. Very unusual.
