According to officials, the US military is currently monitoring an unidentified high-altitude balloon drifting across the Western United States. The balloon was first spotted by military aircraft, which promptly determined that it posed no threat.

The origin and purpose of the balloon remain shrouded in mystery, leaving officials baffled. Drifting eastwards in the jet stream, its trajectory has raised concerns among security agencies. It is yet to be ascertained whether the balloon is a technological tool or a surveillance device deployed by a foreign power.

In close coordination with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) has been actively tracking the balloon’s movement. NORAD interceptors successfully verified that the balloon was non-maneuverable and posed no risk to national security. The FAA has also confirmed that the balloon does not endanger air traffic safety.

This incident comes on the heels of a similar event last year in which a Chinese spy balloon was discovered hovering over US territory for several days. The Chinese balloon raised concerns as it was suspected of having intelligence collection capabilities. However, the Pentagon confirmed that it did not transmit any data before being shot down. It was later revealed that the primary purpose of that balloon was espionage.
