Sighting Details

4:45 pm very early stages of sun setting. a windy cool winter day . suburbs of washington dc . in an industrial area of rockville, maryland. smoking a rocky patel cigar. no funny stuff or stigma. just a quality tobacco cigar. while listening to a podcast . i have the sunroof open on vehicle . the very un full moon almost directly above in a clear sky . a few clouds here and there. i noticed a black solid in color , what looked like an un perfect sphere like object. going below cloud level , ( 2,570 feet ? ) from ne to sw direction. i thought it first was a bird. exited car . to watch the object. sun reflected off of it a bit. then i thought it may be a drone(?) .. then i saw a green light then white light . every 4 seconds blink. yet no red light. not an faa set of standard ” red , white, green ” faa lights. many airports in this region. lots of air traffic. bwi, national and dulles airports are nearby. yet this was odd . very well could be a drone or otherwise an unknown . it was headed in the andrews afb direction. yet that’s just a general idea , thought .
