Small enough for a discreet search and recovery op. Small change to the Defence budget, but maybe some embarrassment? The 'turquoise glow,' if accurate, may be due to some copper element in the design/ hull? I'm just throwing an idea out there...please don't throw it back!

Nice picture thanks for sharing. We have to remember that the things were seeing now are years behind what the USAF/govt. has. Its been said many times they are 50 years ahead of us, as in the publicly shown and used stuff.
I can only imagine what they're using now and what capabilities they have; it's probably on a crazy scale we only dream about.
"You want the chaff to show up on radar, and you want the echo to be fully trackable for the enemy to obtain information concerning its radar cross section and motion. At the same time, you want your chaff to be visually detected with naked eye such that once both the visual and the radar information is combined the conclusion be a positive detection of an incoming craft. That's what you need to help the UAVs to silently penetrate the air defense network: a swarm of MilOrbs"
"This particular MilOrb has a cylindrical shape and its external surface is covered with tiny tiles of phosphorescent material, actually a coating made of PHOLEDs; they glow in green bluish"
"Glow-in-the-Dark is a spinoff program that was jointly run by DoE and DoD, though since FY2009 DoE was taken apart due to its responsibility in the Needles incident in which one of the MilOrbs had a malfunction and crashed close to a populated area. Since then, we have designed molecules using the matrix assisted isolation technique with extremely efficient phosphorescent features."
"Esterline produces the classical Al-coated glass-fiber chaff, while we produce the organic luminescent materials used in MilOrbs. Much as classical chaff, ours can also be used to decoy radar-seeking missiles, but here the idea was to replicate the complete signature of incoming aircrafts both in the electromagnetic and the visual spectrum using PHOLEDs. For a casual observer the MilOrb appears just like that: a greenish glowing sphere, but when switched into the kinetic mode, the MilOrb looks like a green bluish rod falling from the sky towards the selected target at high speed."
"Why was NST involved in the recovery of the crashed MilOrb at all? Does the MilOrb radiate gamma radiation of some sort? Is it radioactive? Does the paint contains a radioactive isotope? Did anyone measure the radiactive levels at Needles crash site?"
The mystery surrounding nuke truckers has given rise to conspiracy theories. In May 2008, several locals near Needles, California, reported seeing a fiery blue-green UFO crash. Intrigued by the UFO story, Las Vegas investigative TV reporter George Knapp traveled to the alleged crash site—and stumbled upon a convoy of OST agents.
After some wangling, the agents offered Knapp a look at their trucks and operations. "They're a little bit 007, with maybe a dash of Rambo, but maybe the smarts and technology of a Tom Clancy hero," he told his viewers. The truckers denied any involvement with a UFO, but they confirmed that they spend a lot of time training in and hauling materials out of DOE's Nevada Test Site—adjacent to the fabled Area 51.
