A fighter jet of the United States of America has shot down an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) from the airspace in Canada.
Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau confirmed on Sunday that the UFO was detected in Canada’s airspace.
Right after the detection and following the recent shoot-down of the alleged Chinese balloon, this latest ‘anomaly’ was detected in the North American skies. Sources concerned said this was a cylindrical flying object whose origin is yet unknown.
Position of the Object
On 12th February 2023, a flying object was spotted to hover around12,100 meters (40,000 feet) in the Yukon district of Canada. The North American Aerospace Defense Agency (NORAD) detected the ‘object’ as it passed over Alaska late Friday.
Reaction of Countries
The object was tracked by US fighter jets from Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson, Alaska. At one point, it entered Canadian airspace and was joined by Canadian CF-18 and CP-140 aircrafts. Finally, a US fighter jet F-22 shot down the mysterious object at 08:41pm.
Even though the object was described by Canadian Defence Secretary Anita Anand as small and cylindrical, efforts are being made to recover the remains of the object to get more detailed information.
Furthermore, Anita assured that there was nothing to be concerned about this object. The White House, on the other hand, says the object has been monitored for 24 hours.
