(PatrioticPost.com)- The “balloon” drama continues with the report of a gigantic white balloon above the Pacific Ocean on February 19, 2023, about 600 miles northeast of Honolulu. The balloon reportedly flew over the Pacific Ocean between Hawaii and California at 50,000 feet.
Oakland Oceanic ATC sent an Aircraft Communications Addressing and Reporting System, or ACARS, a message informing planes of the object’s location and requesting that they contact Air Traffic Control and ask if they saw it. Communications from the ground may be sent and received by commercial aircraft using the ACARS, an automated communication signal.
U.S. Indo-Pacific Command has said they are looking into the claims, but no other information is available.
Several sightings of balloon-shaped objects have been recorded from different parts of the globe, and this newest story adds to the growing body of evidence.
On February 4, 2023, an F-22 Raptor shot down a renowned Chinese high-altitude balloon off the coast of South Carolina after it was suspected of carrying SIGINT equipment and went over the center of the United States. The U.S. military has lately said that the Chinese balloon was tracking a course that would have brought it over Guam and Hawaii, which is about where the one on February 19 was supposedly observed, but that it was taken off its intended trajectory due to high winds.
This week, three more mysterious flying objects were observed over Alaska, Canada, and Lake Huron and were shot down; these objects were subsequently determined to have been considerably smaller commercial or research balloons. It was stated that more balloons were shot down over Ukraine and Romania.
On February 14, the Japanese Ministry of Defense said that, after additional investigation, it was very likely that balloon-shaped flying objects seen above Japan in November 2019, June 2020, and September 2021 were unmanned surveillance balloons launched by China.
China is trolling the world with these low-tech annoyances. What is their end game?
