Keeping Our Eyes on the Skies

The Recent Weather Balloon and UFO Situation

On February 4th, 2023, the U.S. government shot down a Chinese weather balloon off the coast of South Carolina that was believed to have been surveying U.S. military movements.

   While the Federal Investigation Bureau has recovered the remains, they have yet to confirm the purpose of the balloon as of February 23, 2023.

   China has claimed that the balloon was simply drifting over the U.S. and was not being used to observe military bases. The Pentagon believes it was a spy balloon and that the Chinese Government was lying about their intention with it.

   After this event, the U.S. shot down three other balloons which have since been confirmed as actual weather balloons tied to private companies.

   A similar situation occurred between February 10th and February 12th, when Canada detected UFO’s each day, swiftly shooting them down with the help of U.S. F-16 fighter jets.

   Nothing has been confirmed about any of the crafts yet, but the recent hypervigilant downings of unidentified crafts seems to be the result of paranoia affected by the Chinese spy balloon only weeks prior.

   According to the New York Times, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, or NORAD, has sharpened their radars after the sighting of the Chinese weather balloon, leading to the increased rate in revealed aircraft found in North America.

   Despite the Pentagon’s claims that this first craft was a Chinese spy balloon, the fact that China has spy satellites orbiting over the U.S. 24/7 casts doubt on this statement.
