Shortly before Trueau’s tweet, the North American Aerospace Defense Command said it had spotted an object flying at high altitude over Canada. NORAD provided no other information, including when the object was first discovered or what it is.

One Sokesman, Maj. Olivier Gallant, said both Canadian and US fighter jets operating as part of NORAD were deployed.

Trudeau then announced on Twitter:

The object was the third known to have violated North American airspace in the past two weeks.

In a second tweet, Trudeau said, “I spoke to President Biden this afternoon. Canadian forces will now recover and analyze the debris from the object. Thank you NORAD for keeping watch over North America.”

A suspected Chinese spy balloon flew through Canada and US airspace for nearly a week before being shot down by US warplanes off South Carolina last Sunday. US fighter jet downed unknown object over northern Canada – Orange County Register
