The United States will create an interagency team to analyze the phenomenon of unidentified flying objects, said John Kirby, coordinator of strategic communications at the National Security Council. According to him, cited by RIA Novosti, such an order was given by US President Joe Biden.
Meanwhile, he stressed that Washington sees no reason to talk about the extraterrestrial origin of objects shot down over Alaska, Canada and Lake Huron.
As Parlamentskaya Gazeta previously reported, incidents with flying objects began in the United States at the end of January. The US Air Force shot down a “dome-shaped object” over the Atlantic Ocean, which China recognized as a meteorological probe that “has lost its course.”
On February 10, a similar object was shot down near Northern Alaska, and on February 11, a new “probe” was found over the Canadian Yukon, about 160 kilometers from the US state border. On February 12, an unidentified object was intercepted over Lake Huron in Michigan.

“The President, through his National Security Adviser, today directed a multi-agency team to explore the policy implications of detecting, analyzing, and disposing of unidentified airborne objects that pose security risks,” Kirby said.
Meanwhile, as Sergei Kuzikov, Corresponding Member of the Petrovsky Academy of Sciences and a specialist in orbital space systems, noted in an interview with our publication, the Americans most likely encountered the so-called free-flying balloons.
“Moreover, judging by the announced number of solar panels, they carry very serious equipment with high power consumption,” he said. Such balloons, according to Kuzikov, are used for remote sensing of the Earth. They are able to transmit all the collected information to the owners in real time via satellite communications and allow for observation with an accuracy inaccessible to similar space vehicles.
