Sighting over downtown Salem Oregon

While driving East over the Center Street Bridge I looked up over the skyline of downtown and saw the craft in the sky. It was flat and square with silver and black. It was high enough up above the buildings that it was alone in the sky.

At first I thought it was a small plane but it didn’t have wings. It was shaped more like a personal drone but upon closer inspection it would have had to be HUGE to be so far away. It was traveling too fast to be a plane or jet, at an angle that would be impossible.

I watched it for a few seconds trying to figure out what it was, then I blinked and it was gone. It was too high up in the sky to go behind a building or a tree and if it had fallen, I would have seen it. This is my first sighting.
