The newspaper said authorities were preparing to shoot the object down, and were urging fishermen in the vicinity to be safe.
It comes after U.S. F-22 fighter jets shot down three objects in the airspace above the U.S. and Canada this month.
Authorities said one that was shot down off the South Carolina coast on February 4 was a spy balloon from China. The balloon was equipped to detect and collect intelligence signals and was part of a larger Chinese surveillance program that has been operational for several years, U.S. officials said.
But Beijing has insisted it was a civilian airship collecting meteorological data that had accidentally blown off course.
The U.S. Air Force reportedly shot down unidentified flying objects hovering over Alaska and 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.
