Spy Balloon Seen Once Again in the US? After recent shootdowns of aerial objects, a large white balloon was spotted over Honolulu in Hawaii
Pilots have reported spotting a huge white balloon over Honolulu, Hawaii. Just a few days prior, US authorities shot down a Chinese "spy" balloon that was headed towards the state of Hawaii.
Who the object belongs to and the danger it poses to the public are currently unknown. According to recent accounts, a big white balloon was seen flying over Honolulu, Hawaii. In recent weeks, the US military has intercepted and shot down a number of balloons. This balloon is thought to be anywhere between 40,000 and 50,000 feet in the air.
It happens only a few days after US officials alleged that a Chinese "spy" balloon that had already been shot down and was aiming towards the state of Hawaii had been blown off track. Air Traffic Control or other American authorities have not yet confirmed these accusations, though.
Many pilots claimed to have seen the item.
