Eerie image of a Chinese spy balloon that the US refused to shoot down after airport chaos and sighting near Montana nuclear site
A sinister photo of a reported Chinese spy balloon has surfaced after the US refused to shoot it down.
The balloon has been sighted in several locations, including Montana, where Malmstrom Air Force Base is located.
Brigadier General Patrick Ryder, Pentagon press secretary, issued an official statement on the situation earlier Thursday.
“The United States government has spotted and is tracking a high altitude surveillance balloon currently hovering over the continental United States.
“The US government, including NORAD, continues to follow and monitor it closely.
“The balloon is currently flying at an altitude well above commercial air traffic and poses no military or physical threat to people on the ground. Cases of this type of balloon activity have been observed in recent years.
“As soon as the balloon was spotted, the US government acted immediately to protect itself from the collection of sensitive information.”
