Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau took to Twitter a short time ago to announce that acting on his orders, U.S. military aircraft shot down a mysterious UFO over Canadian airspace. This is the second time in as many days that U.S. military has shot down a mysterious UFO over North American airspace and just one week after U.S. jets intercepted a balloon launched by China near the coast of South Carolina.
“I ordered the take down of an unidentified object that violated Canadian airspace. [NORAD] shot down the object over the Yukon. Canadian and U.S. aircraft were scrambled, and a U.S. F-22 successfully fired at the object,” Trudeau said in a statement on Twitter. He added, “I spoke with President Biden this afternoon. Canadian Forces will now recover and analyze the wreckage of the object. Thank you to NORAD for keeping the watch over North America.”
There were no details as to the shape, size, origin, nor altitude of the UFO shot down today.
Yesterday, an object of mysterious purpose and origin was shot down as it flew over Alaska. White House officials confirmed that President Joe Biden gave orders Friday afternoon for U.S. military fighter jets to shoot down the object.
According to White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby, the mystery object was flying at an altitude of about 40,000 feet; the object was roughly the size of a small car. Based on its altitude, Kirby said the object posed a reasonable threat to the safety of civilian flights. Today’s incident happened close to the U.S. / Canada border in Alaska.
The object over Alaska was described to be cylindrical in shape and a gray or silverish color; it didn’t appear to have any propulsion systems and didn’t feature any equipment that could be used to receive or record images, sound, or communication signals.
Just a week ago,, fighter jets fired a missile into a suspected Chinese spy balloon off the coast of South Carolina. The military with help from the FBI is examining debris from that incident to better know what it was. China continues to claim it was a weather balloon that had blown off-course.
While the U.S. was swift to announce yesterday’s attack on the object, most details revolving around the object aren’t known. Kirby said it wasn’t yet known who owned it, and he did not say it was a balloon adding that he didn’t know yet where it came from or what its purpose was. The object was shot down over frozen land and water which should make recovery of its debris to determine what exactly it was easier.
Even less details are known about the UFO involved in today’s incident.
In addition to the alleged spy balloon incident, it’s been also confirmed this week that mysterious green flashes lighting up the night sky have been coming from a laser-equipped Chinese weather satellite. While China has yet to confirm their satellite is responsible, scientists associated with the National Astronomical Observatory of Japan were able to narrow down the green laser’s origins to the Chinese Daqi-1/AEMS earth observing satellite.
