Airship with 5-6 red strobe lights and low humming sound flying in circles around the intersection of Rt 7 and Columbia Pike in Fairfax County - between Alexandria and Falls Church. This airpace is (according to friends in the USAF) a "staging area" for stealth aircraft flying surveillance missions over Washington DC.
