High altitude object shot down over Alaska on Biden’s orders

National Security Council spokesman Adm. John Kirby said the US military shot down a high-altitude object over Alaska.

“WH’s Kirby: Pentagon was tracking a high-altitude object 40K feet over Alaska; out of an abundance of caution, President Biden ordered it down. It landed in US territorial waters. Fighter jets took it down within the last hour.”

“Kirby: “We’re calling it an ‘object’ because that’s the best description we have right now. We don’t know who owns it” – state, corporation or other entity. Debris recovery expected. It was “roughly the size of a small car” with “no significant payload”…the object did not appear to have the maneuverability of a Chinese spy balloon. It was ordered down because of concerns it posed a reasonable threat to civilian flight, Kirby said.”

Kirby said the object was shot over frozen water over northern Alaska near the Canadian border.
