Reports Bailey Johnson on CBS News:
It wasn’t flying, and it’s already been identified. But that didn’t stop people around Washington, D.C. from buzzing about a possible UFO being towed on the local highway Wednesday night. Many took to Facebook and Twitter to share their amazement of an extraterrestrial craft on the back of a tractor-trailer. Maryland authorities confirmed today that the UFO was actually a military drone.
The aircraft was a Northrop Grumman X-47B, to be exact. The drone was en route to the Patuxent Naval Air Station in southern Maryland. Drivers noticed the unusual craft on I-270 and on the Beltway around D.C.
