At approximately 1:30 AM on January 25, 2014 I was getting into bed and noticed a very bright shining/flickering light in the South-East sky in Salem Oregon. At first I thought it was an aircraft, but the light emanating from the object didn���t flash in any recognizable pattern as one would expect from an airplane; my next thought was that it was a satellite because the flashes it was emitting were full spectrum, it seemed to be emanating all the colors one might expect to see in a rainbow, but this is where it started getting weird, the object started moving in a back and forth pattern rapidly for a few moments, then it would remain in place for a few minutes, then it started to wander lazily in random directions, moving in a westerly direction over the span of about one-and-a-half hours before it disappeared from view. I reported the lights to a neighbor who also confirmed the lights and the same movement patterns I described. We could not discern any shape, we could only see the flashing/flickering lights; we both described the light as brilliant, agreeing it was far too bright to be a star or a satellite.
