Shape: Unknown
Duration:67 minutes
An object was spotted hovering far to the SE of Salem with multicolored star-like lights that flashed randomly in a triangular shape.

Object was viewed and captured on camera phone SE of witness' location hovering above trees south of Downtown Salem, Oregon, at approximately 2:40 AM, lasting until about 3:45. The object appeared to be large and far away, but the witness is unsure just how big and how far away the craft was. The witness observes that it could be a few football fields in size about 10 miles away or could be 20 miles across, the witness had no way to tell for sure as the visibility was slightly hazy with city light pollution, no stars were visible, it was not cloudy.

The object hovered, but moved about a central area, bobbing and wobbling. The object appeared triangle in shape due to flickering and flashing, multicolored star-like lights that followed no noticeable timed intervals or which star-like light would flicker or flash. There were also multicolored star-like lights flashing around the object that did not appear to be attached to it.. The witness describes that this looks very similar in behavior to one the witness had spotted multiple times but facing north, intermittently over the previous six to eight months and much farther away from the observer.
