The US military has shot down another high-altitude object over Lake Huron, one of the five Great Lakes near the US-Canada border.
The operation marks the third day in a row that an unidentified object was shot down over North American airspace.
An unidentified object was shot down over northern Canada on Saturday.
On Friday, an unidentified object was shot down in Alaska airspace by a US F-22.
And last weekend, a suspected Chinese surveillance balloon was taken down by F-22s off the coast of South Carolina.
Earlier today, Democratic Rep. Elissa Slotkin of Michigan tweeted that she had received a call from the Department of Defence saying that the US military “has an extremely close eye” on an object above Lake Huron.
Just got a call from @DeptofDefense — our military has an extremely close eye on the object above Lake Huron,” Slotkin said in a tweet on Sunday (local time).
“We’ll know more about what this was in the coming days, but for now, be assured that all parties have been laser-focused on it from the moment it traversed our waters.”
