It seems the balloon hysteria isn’t quite over.
A “large white balloon” was reportedly spotted to the East of Honolulu, Hawaii.
Commercial airline pilots reported through ACARS (Aircraft Communication Addressing and Reporting System) that the balloon was around 500 miles east of Honolulu.
The reports have yet to be confirmed by U.S. officials.

Is this China or is the US Air Force about to accidentally shoot down another weather balloon? pic.twitter.com/7PXervWaXV

Could this be a Chinese spy balloon the Biden administration will allow to fly unimpeded across United States airspace?
Perhaps it’s a $12 pico balloon from a hobby club.
The Biden administration is beyond a joke.
They allowed a confirmed Chinese balloon to soar above critical military installations.
Yet, they shot down objects likely from U.S. residents or universities.
please tell me the white house did not spend the month of february scrambling jets to fire $400,000 missiles at the local hobby club's TWELVE DOLLAR BALLOON

It just keeps getting more ridiculous.
Seymour Hersh says the U.S. military shot down a federal funded weather balloon from the University of Alaska.
"That's what was shot down was one of those units that is sent up by the University but paid by the government"

The U.S. Sun reported:
Now, reports are flooding in on social media claiming that pilots have seen what is being described as a large white balloon approximately 40,000 feet over Honolulu, like this tweet.
“Is this China or is the the US Air Force about to accidentally shoot down another weather balloon?” another tweet asked.
These reports have not yet been confirmed by Air Traffic Control or other US officials.
The flying object was said to have been seen by several pilots.
