The image is interesting on two levels. First off, what exactly are we looking at? It's hard to tell, but it certainly looks like an aircraft. To us it resembles a flying wing and is very similar to the RQ-170's planform. The light color would also match. The only difference is that this aircraft appears to have a wingspan approaching 80 feet, which is significantly larger than that of the RQ-170. So in that sense, this aircraft would be somewhere between an RQ-170 and the P175 Polecat in terms of proportions. This is the size of vehicle that we have posited to have existed for some time—a 'Super Sentinel' of sorts that is capable of performing strike and electronic attack missions.

I’m not so sure the craft in the sat image is estimated to have a roughly 90’ wingspan whereas the bird spotted by our boys was 130’ish IIRC.

I went back and looked and the estimates were 140’ for the bird Zaph and company caught. Still far too wide to be the sat bird (I got that span wrong too 80’).

Almost looks like a tail end of one of the SR-72 concepts.

Little while back I saw this concept poster in the lobby of Lockheed with a design I had never seen before. It was titled LSS-101 and looked like a gen-5 or 6 bomber with the long sleekness of the B-1, small conformal canards, with the wings of an F-22, no horizontal stab, single vertical if I remember right. Looked really cool.

Competition against the Concord I think she was..
