One of the satellites that the website TerraServer sources images from snapped the bat-winged drone sitting outside of a shelter at Creech Air Force Base on February 2nd, 2012. You can see it here. Not only is it the first known occurrence of an RQ-170 being caught by a commercial imaging satellite, but it also works as a nice size comparison to the MQ-9 Reaper sitting nearby.

The -170 was an interim, off the shelf aircraft to fill a need. It was a fairly quick development.
