((ADDENDUM FROM Joan Woodward, noted UFO investigator from Fairfax, VA, area))

Hi Peter,
Just noticed this sighting, about which you suggest an advertising display
as a possible cause. There was a quad-search light display in the Tysons
Corner area (NW part of the Capital beltway) in February. Driving the
beltway at night, it was eye catching and visible for a considerable
distance. I wondered if you would get any "UFO" reports from it.
