US : Another mysterious balloon flying over Hawaii and heading towards Mexico for a week is being tracked
The U.S. military is tracking a mysterious balloon that flew over American soil, but it’s not clear what it is or whom it belongs to, according to three U.S. officials.
The object flew across portions of Hawaii but did not go over any sensitive areas, the officials said.
The U.S. military has been tracking it since late last week and has determined that it poses no threat to aerial traffic or national security and is not communicating signals, one official said.
It’s not clear if it’s a weather balloon or something else, the official said, adding that the U.S. could still shoot it down if it nears land.
The object, which does not appear to have maneuverability, is moving slowly toward Mexico, the officials said.
U.S. officials do not believe the balloon belongs to the Chinese, but they are still working to identify the owner.
A spokesperson for the National Security Council referred questions about the object to the Defense Department, which did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
A Chinese spy balloon flew across parts of the U.S. in early February, before being shot down off the Carolina coast.
The device was able to gather intelligence from several sensitive American military sites, despite the Biden administration’s efforts to block it from doing so, officials have said.
