The White House has confirmed reports that the Pentagon shot down a “high altitude object” Friday afternoon over Alaska. It was downed in the last hour at the order of President Joe Biden.
A U.S. official said there were “no affirmative indications of military threat” to people on the ground from the object. Officials said they could not confirm whether there was any surveillance equipment on the object that was shot down.
The action comes less than a week after a U.S. fighter jet shot down a Chinese spy balloon that had traversed the United States, according to three American officials.
