U.S Military Shoots Down Unidentified Object Near Canadian Border

US military fighter jets shot down an unidentified object over Lake Huron, the fourth in a week.

Reports says an unidentified object has been shot down by the US military, over Lake Huron in Michigan. According to Marca, targets were shot down in Alaska and Canada on Friday and Saturday, respectively, making it the fourth in less than a week.

Reuters said U.S. Air Force General Glen VanHerck, who is tasked with safeguarding U.S airspace, told reporters that the military has not been able to identify what the three most recent objects are, how they stay in the air, or where they are coming from.

The report says the military is not ruling out aliens or any other explanation. A defense official who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity said “the military had not seen any evidence that the objects were terrestrial.”

The object was shot down on President Joe Biden’s order by a U.S F-16 fighter at 2:42pm local time over Lake Huron on the U.S – Canada border, according to an official statement by Pentagon spokesperson Brigadier General Patrick Ryder.

The U.S official who spoke to Reuters on condition of anonymity described the object as Octagonal in structure, with strings hanging off. The first object sighted was reportedly identified as a Chinese surveillance balloon and was shot down off the coast of South Carolina on February 4.

A second object was shot down over sea ice near Deadhorse, Alaska on Friday and a third was shot down over Canada’s Yukon on Saturday. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said investigators are still in search of the debris.
