'Mysterious' flying objects shot down

February 13, 2023

Several high altitude objects have been shot down over US and Canadian airspace. The first was a Chinese balloon. The origin or purpose of the other objects has yet to be confirmed.

A large balloon drifts above the Atlantic Ocean, just off the coast of South Carolina, with a fighter jet and its contrail seen below it.
