The US Air Force shot down a fourth object that was flying over Lake Michigan.
The Defense Department revealed that President Joe Biden ordered the use of an F-16 aircraft to shoot down an unidentified object that was flying over Lake Michigan. The object was reportedly hovering at an altitude of around 20,000 feet.
According to LTC. Cesar Santiago, the crew members were able to avoid hitting civilians while maximizing the chance of recovering the debris. No injuries were reported during the shoot down.
Rep. Jack Bergman of Michigan praised the pilots for their actions. He also stated that the American people deserved more information regarding the incident.
The Federal Aviation Administration initially announced a flight restriction for a limited time over Lake Michigan. However, it did not explain the reason for the restriction.
Senator Steve Daines of Montana criticized the Biden Administration for not releasing more information about the incident. He said the American people have a right to know what happened.
Officials noted that the object that was shot down was not as big as the one that was brought down last week. It was also different in appearance.
