Over the past few days, unidentified flying objects have been spotted and shot down in the United States, Canada, and China. The current spate of sightings began after the US military shot down a Chinese surveillance balloon off the coast of South Carolina on February 1, 2023, that had flown over parts of Alaska and Canada before traversing the U.S. mainland.
Following this event, in less than a week, a U.S. F-22 fighter jet shot down an unknown object flying at a high altitude over Alaska on February 10, 2023. “We don’t know who owns this object,” said the White House spokesperson John Kirby, adding that it was unclear where it began its flight.

The Pentagon reported that the UFO was first identified by ground radars on February 9. F-35 aircraft were deployed for further investigation. The object was flying at an altitude of approximately 40,000 feet (12,190 meters) in a northeasterly direction and posed a danger to civilian aviation.
The UFO was subsequently shot down in the frozen territorial waters off the coast of northeastern Alaska near the Canadian border. The authorities stated that retrieving pieces of the object from the ice would be much easier compared to the Chinese balloon that had been shot down previously, whose pieces sank in the ocean.
U.S. Brig. Gen. Patrick Ryder, the Pentagon’s chief spokesperson said that it was the size of a small car. According to him, the pilots who had been observing the object before it was shot down confirmed that there was no human presence on board. He further stated that it lacked the ability to change direction and did not resemble any conventional aircraft. “It wasn’t an aircraft per se,” Ryder told the media.
Interestingly, the pilots involved in the sighting gave inconsistent reports. Some stated that the object interfered with their plane’s sensors, while others did not experience this. Some also claimed that they could not see any recognizable source of propulsion on the object and were unable to explain how it was able to remain afloat while cruising at an altitude of 40,000 feet.
The differing eyewitness accounts have contributed to the Pentagon’s inability to fully determine the nature of the object. On February 11, 2023, US Northern Command issued a statement saying that they have no further information to provide about the object’s capabilities, purpose, or origin, but acknowledged that the recovery efforts are being hindered by the harsh Arctic weather conditions.

Officials said that they found no connection between the Chinese spy balloon and the UFO that was downed near the Canadian border and northeastern Alaska.
Then on February 11, an American F-22 fighter shot down another UFO in the Yukon Territory near the Alaska border. The object, which was cylindrical and smaller than a spy balloon, was detected on radar a day earlier as it flew over Alaska. Although its nature remains unclear, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stated that it had breached Canadian airspace.
The sighting continued and the following day, the third UFO was spotted in the sky over Montana, which was first seen on February 11 before being taken down by U.S. forces over Lake Huron in Michigan. The object, which was flying at 20,000 feet, had a unique octagonal structure with strings hanging off, but had no recognizable payload, according to U.S. officials.
Despite the rumors that the object may have come from extraterrestrial origins, national security officials dismissed the possibility. However, Gen. Glen D. VanHerck, the commander of the Air Force’s Northern Command, stated during a news conference: “I haven’t ruled out anything at this point.”
Russia Shot Down a UFO Just Last Month
According to Vasily Golubev, the governor of Rostov oblast, a “small-sized ball-shaped object” was seen flying in the wind at an altitude of about 1.5 miles on January 3, 2023, over the village of Sultan Sala in the Myasnikovsky district. It was later shot down. (Source)
The local news outlet Privyet Rostov reported on a mysterious ball-shaped UFO that was shot down in the sky. Meanwhile, social media channels on Telegram shared information about the Russian air defense systems in the Rostov region being in operation that night.
The Rostov region is situated near the Sea of Azov, a significant waterway for the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. The area close to Ukraine has suffered from persistent shelling and drone attacks since the beginning of 2022.
In response to the events in the U.S., Russian politician Alexei Pushkov, who serves as a senator for the Perm region and was previously an MP, posted on Telegram about the U.S.’ supposed “new nationwide occupation” of shooting down UFOs.
Corbell & ELizondo on UAPs
Filmmaker Jeremy Cornell has been talking about UFOs being shot down by the militaries around the globe. He said that people often get upset with him when he says that UAPs are continuously being fired upon. During his Podcast with Joe Rogan, Corbell revealed a lot of shocking information about UFOs that have been monitored by the US military over their airspace.
“Over active war zones, there has been an increased frequency of UAP or UFO sightings. There are rules in place for whether or not they should fire upon them. Some people got upset with me for saying publicly on the news that we do fire at UAPs, because it is true. However, the reason why we do is not what people think.
In active war zones, specifically the Middle East, anything within 27 to 30 miles of ground troops gets fired upon. This information was revealed to me from documents that showed more precisely how they choose what to fire upon. They fire upon anything that appears to have a payload, as it would be a threat. They do nothing with the cubes surrounded by spheres, as they do not look like they have a payload.
I shared this information on the news and don’t need to prove its validity to anyone. I speak with people who are currently in war zones, and the frequency of UAP sightings has increased since 2021, making it critical. Countries like Russia and Syria have been firing upon these UAPs, but they are not their assets. This raises the question of whose these UAPs are. Hellfire missiles are used to fire at these UAPs.
One of the UAPs that was fired upon looked like a jellyfish, about the size of a big coffee table, and domed. There is no known retrieval program in these war zones, and even if they did hit something, it’s unknown if they would be able to take it down. It’s possible that these UAPs could be balloons used by drug smugglers, but they have controlled flight, which is not a new phenomenon. There have been similar sightings of metallic spheres outpacing planes during World War II, with both sides thinking it was the other side’s technology.
This information is being shared by military personnel who are frustrated that it’s not being taken seriously by the chain of command. There is no proactive UFO discovery process, it’s all reactive.”
US Senator Marco Rubio has recently claimed UFOs have been “operating over restricted US airspace for years” amid a slew of sightings over America and Canada in recent days. He tweeted: “The last 72 hours revealed to the public what was happening for years, unidentified aircraft routinely operating over restricted US airspace… This is why I pushed to take this seriously and created a permanent UAP (unidentified aerial phenomena – equivalent to UFOs) task force two years ago.” (Source)
A while ago, Lue Elizondo, the former head of AATIP shared his thoughts on the UFO/UAP and how the Pentagon approaches the phenomenon from strictly national security perceptive. In an interview with Curt Jaimungal and Sean Cahil, Elizondo provides deeper insight into the Pentagon’s theories on why UFO/UAPs are routinely spotted around American, Russian, Chinese, and other nuclear-armed nations’ most secretive and sensitive nuclear assets.
He explained: Curt, I have a lack of transparency on this issue. I’m a little more practical and less optimistic about our species. What if there was knowledge so volatile and earth-shattering that if it was made public, it could threaten the entire species?
Let’s take off our scientific, humanitarian, and philanthropic hats and put on a hat of national security. We just discussed that there is no indication that these things are here to help us. So, there are only three possibilities – they are benign or benevolent, malevolent, or they are here to observe us and are capable of both good and bad.
If you were a general from the 1950s or 60s and your job was to protect America during the height of the cold war, you would have information that something is here that can outperform anything you have and it doesn’t show signs of being benevolent.
If there is a 10% chance that these things are bad and may come here in force in 50 years, the mere fact of having this conversation with the American people could start preparation, but it could also cause an action that you’re not prepared for. The mere acknowledgment of their existence could cause a reaction that you’re not ready for, and that’s why this has been kept secret for so long.
But, I still think that we have to be honest with the American people. Just like a doctor telling a patient they have cancer, the American people have a right to know. But I understand why people may want to keep it secret, as the mere fact of not keeping it secret could cause a reaction that you’re not ready for. From a national security perspective, it makes sense, but I don’t agree with it.
