UFO landed in Washington?! No. Drone transport.

Drones are weird-looking and make for great UFO spotting these days.

Military drone mistaken for ‘UFO’ along DC highways

People in the D.C. area are buzzing after pictures began popping up online showing what many believed to be a ‘UFO’ in transport along the Capitol Beltway.

The spotting took place around 11:00 p.m. Wednesday when drivers first saw the craft being hauled on a flatbed truck on I-270, and then again down I-495.

An official at Northrop Grumman confirmed to FOX 5 on Thursday that the craft was actually an X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System.

Maybe we did reverse-engineer UFOs. Nah, to assume that would be to ignore our own ingenuity. People do like to assume some zany explanations though.

Here’s a video of a Fox News report about the drone:

    I’m not surprised. When the first X47b got shipped to the East Coast last December, people that that one was a flying saucer, too.
