It's similar, but the X-48 has a more rounded nose (and other, less obvious, differences).

The shape of the mystery aircraft is actually rather close to that of the X-47B UCAV. But I'm not saying, that the craft _is_ an X-47B, because the latter is not a black program, has not yet had an official rollout, and flying UAV prototypes s at night in the early testing phase would be too risky, IMHO.
