ANOTHER? Military Shoots Down Unidentified Object Over Lake Huron

Yet another unidentified “high altitude object” was shot down on Sunday, this time over Michigan’s Lake Huron. According to early reports, the object was flying at 20,000 feet over Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

Rep. Jack Bergman of Michigan confirmed that the “U.S. military has decommissioned another ‘object’ over Lake Huron” on Sunday afternoon.

Reuters reports:

On President Joe Biden’s order, a U.S. F-16 fighter shot down the object at 2:42 p.m. local time over Lake Huron on the U.S.-Canada border, Pentagon spokesperson Brigadier General Patrick Ryder said in an official statement.

Though it did not pose a military threat, the object could have potentially interfered with domestic air traffic as it was traveling at 20,000 feet (6,100 m), and it might have had surveillance capabilities, Ryder said.

The object appeared to be octagonal in structure, with strings hanging off but no discernible payload, said a U.S. official speaking on condition of anonymity.

Sunday marked the the third day in a row that unidentified high altitude objects have been shot down: one over Alaska, Canada’s Yukon Territory and now Lake Huron.
