Breaking: High Altitude Object Shot Down Over Alaska on Biden’s Orders

The U.S. military shot down a high altitude object over Alaska, according to National Security Council spokesman Adm. John Kirby.

“WH’s Kirby: The Pentagon was tracking a high altitude object at 40K feet over Alaska; out of abundance of caution President Biden ordered it to be downed. It came down within US territorial waters. Fighter aircraft took it down within the last hour.”


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


Kirby says the object was shot down over northern Alaska near the Canadian border on frozen water.

Kirby says the US does not know who owns the object.


“Was its appearance like the Chinese aircraft?” NBC’s Kelly O’Donnell asked Kirby.

John Kirby: “No, it was — it was much, much smaller than the spy balloon that we took down last Saturday. The way it was described to me was roughly the size of a small car.”


Kelly O’Donnell asked Kirby, “Is it now the policy…if unidentified aircraft are over U.S. territory that it is likely the President will…shoot it down?
