FOX News reports:

The unidentified “objects” the U.S. shot down over Canada and Alaska are were both believed to be balloons carrying a payload, a senior U.S. official confirmed to Fox News on Sunday.

Details regarding the over Canada object were scarce throughout the weekend, but U.S. officials now describe it as a “small metallic balloon with a tethered payload,” the official told Fox. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer also said he received a briefing on the issue Sunday and was told that the device over Alaska was also believed to be a balloon.

The devices were “much smaller” than the Chinese spy craft shot down last week, however, Schumer told ABC’s This Week.
