New Details Emerge in Case of Canadian ‘UFO’ Shot Down Over Yukon


Over the course of the last several days, Americans have been inundated with strange, cryptic stories about a rash of “UFO’s” that have been shot down by US military aircraft in the skies above North America.

The trouble began when a Chinese spy balloon was spotted and forcibly decommissioned by a fighter jet just off the coast of South Carolina.  In the ensuing days, a number of similarly-intrusive objects were spotted and shot down over Alaska, the Yukon, and Lake Huron.

While information regarding these objects has been rather hard to come by, a few details have begun to emerge in the case of the Canadian incident.

The unidentified flying object shot down in Canadian airspace on Saturday appeared to be a “small, metallic balloon with a tethered payload below it,” according to what sources described as a Pentagon memo sent to lawmakers on Monday and obtained by CNN.

The memo offers the first official details of one of the three objects shot down in recent days that was previously described as a “cylindrical object.” The object crossed near “US sensitive sites” before it was shot down, the document said.

Defense officials also told lawmakers that the object shot down over Lake Huron, in Michigan on Sunday, “subsequently slowly descended” into the water after impact.

This trend will likely continue, according to lawmakers.

What’s happening now is we’re actually looking for these with extra vigilance. We’re looking for them in different ways. We’re starting to see them in different ways,” Colorado Democratic Rep. Jason Crow said on “CNN This Morning” on Monday.

“My speculative guess as why we’re seeing these things happen in quick succession is now we’re really attuned to looking for them, right?” Rep. Jim Himes of Connecticut, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, said on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday.

“The truth is that most of our sensors and most of what we were looking for didn’t look like balloons. Now, of course, we’re looking for them. So, I think we’re probably finding more stuff,” Himes added.

Congress will be receiving both classified and unclassified briefings on these events in the coming days.
