A U.S. fighter jet shot down an unidentified object over Canadian airspace on the orders of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. The object was described as cylindrical and smaller than the suspected Chinese balloon shot down the previous weekend. The U.S. and Canada scrambled aircraft in response, and the U.S. F-22 successfully fired at the object. The White House confirmed that Trudeau and President Biden authorized the shoot-down, and the Pentagon said the object was first spotted over Alaska. However, conspiracy theorists are saying that the object is not a balloon, as it is cylindrical. Meanwhile, China has accused the U.S. of illegally flying balloons into its airspace over ten times since January 2022. The White House immediately rebutted this claim, with National Security Council's John Kirby denying that the U.S. is flying balloons over China. This could be the start of a worrying escalation between the two superpowers and it’s quite possible more of these balloons will be spotted and shot down.
