February 10, 2023 unidentified object over Alaska

The Pentagon shot down an object over Alaska on Friday after President Biden gave the go-ahead. It’s not clear what the object over Alaska was, but it was flying at a height that could have been dangerous for civilian planes, so they took it down. This comes just a week after they brought down a Chinese spy balloon over the Atlantic.

The object was much smaller than the Chinese spy balloon from last week, and the pilots confirmed the UFO/UAP was unmanned before they shot it down near Canada. The Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, was informed and supported the decision.

The U.S. picked up the object on radar around 9 pm Thursday and sent a surveillance aircraft to keep an eye on it. The object was heading toward the North Pole when it was taken down. The U.S. doesn’t have any evidence that it came from China, and they don’t know who sent it.

Some officials think it was a balloon, but it broke into pieces when it hit the frozen sea, so it’s still a mystery what it was. US officials informed ABC News that when fighter jets were sent out, the pilots didn’t see anything that indicated the object was powered. They described it as a “cylindrical, silver-gray” object that seemed to be floating, according to a US official who spoke to the outlet. NSC said:

“We’re calling this an object, because that’s the best description we have right now. We do not know who owns it. We do expect to be able to recover the debris since it fell not only within our territorial space but on what we believe is frozen water.”

A plane operated by ConocoPhillips carrying workers from Anchorage to an oil field on Alaska’s North Slope had to turn back after receiving a restricted airspace warning from the Federal Aviation Administration.

February 11, 2023 unidentified object over Canada/Montana

The U.S. military sent an F-22 fighter jet to take down a cylindrical object in the sky over Canada on Saturday, just a day after the Alaska incident. Meanwhile, the military also sent fighter jets to check out a radar issue in Montana, which temporarily caused a federal shutdown of the airspace. It was later found that NORAD closed airspace over Montana around the same time.

NORAD announcement about flight restrictions over Montana

On Saturday, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced that a U.S. F-22 fighter jet shot down a cylindrical object over the northern Yukon territory. Trudeau said that Canadian forces would recover and analyze the wreckage. Here’s a summary of what he said:

  • “To the best of our knowledge this was the first time NORAD has downed an object in Canadian airspace”
  • “The object was downed 100 miles from the Canada US border in Central Yukon”
  • “Recovery operations are now on the way supported by Canadian armed forces”
  • “No further details about object, appears to be small cylindrical object, and smaller than the one downed last week in North Carolina”
  • “Let me assure all Canadians that Canadians are safe”
  • “Canadian armed forces with RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police) will recover and analyze the object”
  • “We detected this objected together and defeated the object together”
  • “It would not be prudent for me to speculate on the origin of the object”
  • Operation included two F-22’s from U.S and two F-18’s from Canada
  • “This is a cylindrical object, and we are working to analyze the debris”
  • “Shot down at 3:41pm EST”
  • “Shot down at about 40k feet”
  • They have CP140 (Lockheed CP-140 Aurora?) that is actively monitoring the debris site now in Central Yukon
  • “From all indications this object is potentially similar to the one that was shot down in North Carolina” (when asked if object was terrestrial or not – Kudos to the guy who asked this question)
  • The defense minister refuses to acknowledge it a as balloon at this point
  • When we first started tracking this object it was dark (nighttime)
  • They needed to make sure there was infrared and missile lock capability
  • AIM-9 missile from the F-22 was used to shoot down object
  • Whoever had the first best shot had the go ahead to shoot it down

Defense Minister Anita Anand wanted to avoid guessing where the object came from but mentioned that it was cylindrical in shape. She didn’t say it was a balloon but noted that it was smaller than the Chinese balloon that was shot down off the coast of South Carolina a week ago.

“A U.S. F-22 shot down the object in Canadian territory, using an AIM 9X missile following close co-ordination between U.S. and Canadian authorities.”

UAP/UFO, balloon, or something else

Some are quick to point to UAP/UFO, invasions, etc. but most are skeptical.

“I feel like all of this is all orchestrated somehow… like first it’s a ‘Chinese spy balloon’ that they all could have verified and shot down quite easily and now magically there finding even more UAPs and of course they have to follow them in case they’re Chinese spy balloons right? We all got to be diligent and watch the skies…”

Last week’s incident with the Chinese spy balloon caused tension between the U.S. and China, and the Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, cancelled a trip to Beijing because of it. The U.S. military got to study the spy balloon for a while before they brought it down, and they say it wasn’t a threat.
