US Military Shoots Down Another UFO Over Canada


Just 24 hours after the U.S. Airforce shot down an unidentified flying object hovering over Alaska, the U.S. Airforce has shot down another UFO over Canada.

In the Pentagon’s most recent press conference, Gen. Pat Ryder announced NORAD monitored an unmanned object in Canadian airspace on Saturday.

The high-altitude object was shot down after the US military received the green light from Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau to fly an F-22 Raptor in Canadian airspace in order to shoot the object down.

The Pentagon and White House have refused to say where the object came from.

Fox News had more details to report:

The Pentagon issued a statement Saturday revealing details about how an unidentified object was shot down by the U.S. military over Canada on Saturday.

Pentagon Press Secretary Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder said in a statement that President Biden authorized NORAD to work with the Canadian government to shoot down a “high-altitude airborne object” on Saturday after a call with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

According to the Pentagon, NORAD detected the object over Alaska late Friday evening and monitored the object over U.S. airspace with the assistance of the Alaska Air National Guard and was “tracking it closely and taking time to characterize the nature of the object.

“Monitoring continued today as the object crossed into Canadian airspace, with Canadian CF-18 and CP-140 aircraft joining the formation to further assess the object,” the statement said.

A U.S. F-22 Raptor was used to shoot down the object in Canadian airspace using an AIM 9X missile, according to the statement.

“As Canadian authorities conduct recovery operations to help our countries learn more about the object, the Federal Bureau of Investigation will be working closely with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police,” the Pentagon said.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he ordered the takedown of an “unidentified object” flying over Canada’s Yukon territory on Saturday.

The object was shot down by a U.S. military fighter jet from the U.S. and Canada’s North American Aerospace Defense Command, Trudeau said.

“I spoke with President Biden this afternoon. Canadian Forces will now recover and analyze the wreckage of the object,” Trudeau said. “Thank you to NORAD for keeping the watch over North America.”

The two leaders approved the takedown of the object “out of an abundance of caution and at the recommendation of their militaries,” the White House said.

Since NORAD detected the object over Alaska on Friday evening, North American officials had closely monitored it as it crossed into Canadian airspace on Saturday, Pentagon Press Secretary Brig. Gen. Pat Ryder said in a statement. Following the call between President Biden and Trudeau, Biden authorized the F-22 to shoot down the object with a missile in Canadian territory, Ryder said.
