On February 4th 2023, An alleged “Chinese spy balloon the size of 3 buses” was shot down off the coast of South Carolina. After a day of searching, the debris were recovered from the water by US Navy’s specialist explosives team. This craft flew over the US for several days, crossing the entire span of the United States before being shot down to avoid harm from falling debris. China has insisted the balloon was an airship that had blown off course and that the U.S. had “overreacted” by shooting it down.
What appeared like a random event soon turned into a bizarre pattern. A week later three other “flying objects” were shot down around US airspace. The first one fell in Deadhorse, Alaska on February 10th, the second was downed in Yukon, Canada on February 11th and the third was taken out over Lake Huron, Michigan on February 12th.
Referring to the craft in Alaska, Air Force General Glen VanHerck, head of North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) said, “We’re actively searching for that object right now. I’ve got a Navy P-8, which is surveilling the area, with helicopters as well. Once we locate that object, we’ll put an Arctic security package in there and begin the analysis and recovery, but we don’t have it right now,” – “We’re calling them objects, not balloons, for a reason.”
There has been no public release of what the last 3 “UFOs” were or where they came from, only rumors and vague descriptions. So far all we know is the pentagon stated it has not yet managed to obtain wreckage from any of the felled crafts.
An interesting note is that US defense officials described one of the unidentified object as “octagonal” and “wasn’t taken down easily” with the first missile reportedly missing its target and safely landing in the lake. Each missile costs the American taxpayers a cool $400,000.
