Bright Object Over Salem Engaged in Fast Maneuvers

A recent letter to the editor in the Statesman Journal reported a multiple occasion sighting in the last week of a bright object moving around rapidly like a bee in the night sky.  Here is the link to the letter: http://www.statesmanjournal.com/comments/article/20120830/OPINION/308300039/What-object-sky-above-Salem-area-.

Hopefully, this will be reported to MUFON.

I am wondering these days, is it going to become more and more difficult to tell the difference between true unknowns and indentifiable strange objects, such as police drones?  Apparently, police departments in the suburbs of Portland have begun using drones for surveillance.  What are the limits of speed and maneuverability?

I’m not saying the object reported in today’s paper was a drone.  But how will we tell?  Are MUFON Field Investigators trained about drones?
