US military shoots another “UFO” in Michigan
Over Lake Huron near Michigan, the United States military intercepted and destroyed another UFO.
This is the fourth takedown in less than a week and the third in as many days, after the downing of targets in Alaska and Canada on Friday and Saturday, respectively.
Reuters’ anonymous sources said they couldn’t comment on the latest object’s appearance, but a senior US official characterised it as an octagonal construction.
They also didn’t mention whether or not it was manoeuvrable, or just floated on air currents.
The device was “downed by US Air Force and National Guard pilots,” according to a tweet from Representative Elissa Slotkin.
American and Canadian authorities shut off a section of airspace above the lake near the Canadian border before sending out planes to intercept and identify the object.
The White House claims that the Chinese “spy” balloon that was shot down in South Carolina a week ago bore no resemblance to the mystery devices that had been shot down over Alaska and Canada.
While a National Security Council official has stated that they are “far smaller,” their precise nature cannot be determined until the debris is retrieved.
Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has said that his country’s recovery teams are out hunting for the object that was shot down over Canadian territory.
A US F-22 stealth fighter jet, acting on Mr. Trudeau’s orders, shot it down Saturday over the rugged, sparsely inhabited Yukon.
Canada’s Defense Minister Anita Anand has previously declined to speculate on the mystery object’s origin.
She described a cylinder-shaped object that was smaller than the Chinese balloon that was shot down off the coast of South Carolina.
