The US military on Sunday shot down yet another high-altitude object over Lake Huron, CNN reported, citing a US official and a congressional source briefed on the matter.

The operation marks the third day in a row that an unidentified object was shot down over North American airspace – and the fourth time in the last week.

On Saturday, North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) shot down an "unidentified object" over the Canadian territory of Yukon on the orders of Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The Prime Minister added he ordered the object to be shot down after it violated Canadian airspace.

Saturday’s incident came one day after the US military shot down a "high-altitude object" flying over Alaska airspace on the orders of President Biden.

National Security Council official John Kirby said that the Department of Defense had been tracking the object for 24 hours before shooting it down.

While Friday’s incident took place a week after the US downed a suspected Chinese spy balloon off the coast of the Carolinas, Kirby said the US is not referring to Friday’s object as a balloon and has yet to attribute to China or any other entity.

Earlier Sunday, Democratic Rep. Elissa Slotkin of Michigan tweeted that she had received a call from the Department of Defense saying that the US military “has an extremely close eye” on an object above Lake Huron.
