NORAD Shoots Down Unknown Object Over North America

Published on

Saturday, an American F-22 was dispatched to shoot down an unidentified object above Yukon territory, Canada.

The Yukon is a sparsely inhabited Canadian area located north of British Columbia and next to Alaska’s eastern border.

“I ordered the take down of an unidentified object that violated Canadian airspace. [The North American Aerospace Defense Command] shot down the object over the Yukon. Canadian and U.S. aircraft were scrambled, and a U.S. F-22 successfully fired at the object,” tweeted Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau on Saturday.

“I spoke with President [Joe] Biden this afternoon. Canadian Forces will now recover and analyze the wreckage of the object. Thank you to NORAD for keeping the watch over North America,” he added.

Global News reported earlier Saturday that NORAD was monitoring one or two objects.

Later, NORAD declared that it had “positively identified a high-altitude airborne object over Northern Canada.”

NORAD spokesperson Maj. Olivier Gallant stated that military aircraft were “operating from Alaska and Canada in support of [NORAD] activities.”

The event in Canada occurred one day after the Pentagon destroyed an unidentified object off the coast of Alaska. Officials have not disclosed any information on the object’s origin or presumed purpose.

According to The New York Times, it was initially detected on radar at 9 p.m. Alaska time on Thursday and assessed to represent a possible threat to civilian aircraft.

The Washington Post stated that the search for the object’s remnants had begun.

Last Saturday, a Chinese surveillance balloon was shot down off the coast of South Carolina after crossing the United States.
