UFO Mania: US Shoots Down Objects Over Lake Huron and Alaska, Uruguay Investigating...• https://www.vice.com, By Jason Koebler
The U.S. military "has decommissioned another 'object' over Lake Huron." Lawmakers say "the American people deserve far more answers than we have."
The United States military shot down an unidentified flying object over Lake Huron Sunday afternoon, just over a day after an Air Force fighter shot down an object over Alaska on Friday evening, and about a week after a Chinese balloon was shot down after traversing across U.S. airspace. Meanwhile, the Uruguayan Air Force said it was investigating "lights in the sky" in the northwestern part of the country, and Chinese state media reported that there was an "unidentified flying object in waters near the coastal city of Rizhao in the province and were preparing to shoot it down."
While no single part of this is that unusual, the flurry of military action and sightings in a single weekend has lit social media aflame. The military has not said what the two objects shot down this weekend are, but the actions follow the much-hyped downing of a Chinese spy balloon last week. UFO mania, it seems, is here. The U.S. military, it should be noted, has been using the threat of UFOs to ask for more funding for years.
Michigan congressman Jack Bergman tweeted Sunday that the U.S. military "has decommissioned another 'object' over Lake Huron … the American people deserve far more answers than we have."
Earlier Sunday, the Federal Aviation Administration put up a temporary Notice to Air Missions (NOTAM) closing the airspace above Lake Michigan. Nav Canada, a nonprofit group that operates Canada's civil airspace and air traffic control, put up a similar notice over a portion of Ontario near Lake Huron "due to an act [of] air defense."
