Silent, explosive lights traveling away from Salem.

In bed next to girlfriend and woke up because thirsty. Southwest of the city, flashes/explosive lights filling the sky.

No sounds, just silent, near blinding lights. Duration was ~1.5s every 2-4 minutes.

As I type, it is continuing to move on a westward trajectory toward the coastal hills.

When closest to this location, streetlights, fans and AC units would dim when flashes occurred.
