The US has shot down another unidentified object that it says flew near sensitive military sites and could have been used for spying.
It was downed over Lake Huron in Michigan at 2.42pm local time on Sunday on President Biden’s orders.
A US F-16 jet fired a missile at about 20,000ft amid concerns that its altitude and flightpath could endanger civilian planes.
It is the fourth incident in just over a week – and the third in as many days – after objects were shot down in Alaska and Canada on Friday and Saturday,
A senior US official, speaking anonymously, described the latest object as having “an octagonal structure with strings hanging off but no discernible payload”.
Authorities restricted airspace over the lake, near the Canadian border, before both US and Canadian jets were sent to intercept it.
Jets were also scrambled on Saturday after radar detected an object over Montana, but it could not be located and it was thought it could be an error.
However, the signal was picked up again by North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) on Sunday, the Pentagon said.
“Based on its flight path and data we can reasonably connect this object to the radar signal picked up over Montana, which flew in proximity to sensitive DOD [Department of Defense] sites,” said a statement.
“We did not assess it to be a kinetic military threat to anything on the ground, but assess it was a safety flight hazard and a threat due to its potential surveillance capabilities.”
Teams are trying to recover the object from the lake.
US Air Force general Glen VanHerck admitted he did not know what the last three objects shot down were or how they stay aloft.
However, he told reporters they were not the same as the Chinese “spy” balloon downed near South Carolina a week ago.
“We’re calling them objects, not balloons, for a reason,” he said – also refusing to rule out any explanation when asked if they could be extra-terrestrial.
Why don’t they show a picture of what they shut down? They have cameras that takes a picture of everything when they guns or missile. Or this this all Bull-Shit?
If it’s not BS, then it’s about time since we’re the only ones who should be flying in our airspace.
I don’t see Biden having the guts to do this, so I’m thinking it’s BS.
Call me crazy but I think that the 2nd, 3rd, 4th “objects” are nothing more than propaganda in order for Biden/Military to save face after letting the first spying China balloon roam our skies unhindered!
The corrupted US Government has been caught in several lies about the 1st balloon, so they made up more balloons/objects in order to show the Country that they are the “bosses”! and of course, to deflect from the actual news, which is the Congressional hearings going on right now!
We cannot believe anything coming out of Biden’s corrupted Justice Department or their criminal FBI. And resulting from all their lies, I now have the tendency to believe exact opposite of what they are telling us!
Well Susan i can tell you this out of pure confidence. The reason they refuse to info us on the orbs as called. Is a fifth grader could build 1 of these. And to save face i cant wait to here their story as to what these were. But the Balloon was real and, it did surveil over America. CHINA KNOWS IT. WE KNOW IT. Why did Russia miss it? Why did Canada Miss it? Yeah, its pretty sad what we have for government today. They are to embarrassed to admit what these orbs are. How they are made, and the simple propelsion.No sound No fuel burn trail. And my opinion there was a weather related instrument fault. Or a lie in itself. THE CHINA BALLOON WAS THE WORST BREACH OF OUR RESTRICTED AIRSPACE. ORBS ARE HOAXES.
Where are the photos of these vehicles to support the actions taken by the military? What were they carrying and what did the launch/drop before they could be shot down?
Orbs had no payloads. Unless it was toxic air inside it. These things are propelled by a very simple device. Hardly weighs a pound. And its a expensive trick to shoot these things down. Its a fkg Hoax. Just like the whole body of government. The China Spy balloon was real. And they still refuse to inform us!!!!
THE CHINESE BALLOON CONTAINED A PAYLOAD OF HYPERSONIC MISSILES; THIS BALLOON WAS FIRST SEEN FLOATING OVER LITTLE DIOMEDE ISLAND (is an island that separates Russia from the United States, is located at the western point of the Aleutian islands), HOWEVER; JOE “FUCKING” BIDEN REFUSED TO SHOOT DOWN THE CHINESE BALLOON, STATING THAT IT WOULD ONLY MAKE THE USA CHINA RELATIONS WORSE!!!
THE UNITED STATES NEEDS PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP BACK IN THE WHITE HOUSE BEFORE FUCKING BIDEN BRINGS AMERICA INTO ANOTHER WAR!!!
