X-47B spotted on Maryland freeways

Last night, an X-47B drone made its way down I-270 and around the Beltway on its way to Naval Air Station Patuxent River.  Evidently, it prompted numerous UFO reports and was a big deal on Twitter. That was despite the fact that it was perched on a flat-bed tractor trailer.

Reportedly, the drone may be seen flying around the station and the Chesapeake Bay this summer.  That would be cool.  I wonder if will wander far enough to be seen around the Bay Bridge or MDRA's launch site?
