The United States military has been on high alert in North America following the week-long incident involving a Chinese spying balloon.
However, the saga of UFO's making contact with North America continues.
On Friday, the U.S. military shot down a "high-altitude object" over Alaska. The object was determined to pose a "reasonable threat to civilian air traffic" as it was flying at 40,000 feet. The fighter aircraft assigned to US Northern Command successfully brought the object down, and President Biden referred to the operation as a "success." Recovery teams are currently working to retrieve the debris, which is sitting on top of ice in U.S. territorial waters.
On Saturday, a U.S. F-22 fighter jet shot down an unidentified cylindrical object over Canada, marking the second such instance in as many days. Meanwhile, in Montana, the military scrambled fighter jets to investigate a radar anomaly, which briefly led to a federal closure of airspace.
These incidents highlight the heightened state of security in North America, as the military remains vigilant in protecting the safety of the nation and its citizens.
