The sudden news of the sighting of an UFO on the DC highway in broad daylight sent avid ufologists running not for cover but for their video cameras - to capture the invaluable sights for posterity. Rumors of aliens having landed on planet Earth must also have been strong.
But – the excitement fizzled out too soon – it was, however, good while it lasted.
The so-called UFO was a Northrop Grumman X-47B drone which had the shape of what could be mistaken for an UFO.
The drone aircraft built by Northrup Grumman was being transported from West Virginia to Patuxent Naval Air Station in Maryland on a flatbed truck on the Capitol Beltway.
