Washington – White House press secretary Karin Jean-Pierre tried to put an end to any questions about whether recent objects detected in the nation’s airspace are related to aliens, saying Monday that there is “no indication” of extraterrestrial activity linked to several high-altitude objects. beaten in nine days.

“I just want to make sure we address this from the White House. I know there have been questions and concerns about this, but again, there is no sign of aliens or extraterrestrial activity in these recent eliminations,” Jean-Pierre told reporters as she opened a White House press briefing. “Wanted to make sure the American people know that, all of you know that, and it’s important for us to say that from here.”

Jean-Pierre’s assurances that aliens are not behind the unusual activity in the skies came a day after US Air Force Gen. Glenn VanHerk, who heads the US Northern Command and the North American Aerospace Defense Command, was asked if the authorities ruled out the possibility of the presence of aliens.

“I’m not ruling anything out at this point,” he told reporters during a briefing on Sunday. “We are continuing to evaluate.”

Melissa Dalton, assistant secretary of defense for national defense and hemispheric affairs, said Sunday that authorities are “working hard to understand the nature of these unidentified objects,” particularly if they were for surveillance and what their capabilities are.

The nation’s eyes turned upward after three high-altitude objects detected over Alaska, Canada and Michigan were shot down by military fighter jets in as many days. The trio of incidents, all from Friday, came after the U.S. Air Force knocked down a Chinese observation balloon off the coast of South Carolina on February 4.

The Chinese airship entered US airspace for the first time earlier that week and crossed the country, flying over or near military installations in Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska and Missouri before it was shot down. The Navy is leading efforts to collect the wreckage and retrieve the balloon’s payload, and rescue operations resumed Monday after being suspended by rough water.

In addition to the observation balloon, the US shot down an object over Alaska on Friday and, working with Canadian officials, an unidentified object over the Yukon on Saturday. Beaten by the American military other high altitude object, flying at about 20,000 feet over the Great Lakes region on Sunday,

An assessment published last month of reports of what the government calls “unidentified aerial phenomena” says there have been 366 additional reports of sightings since 2004. 163 were “balloon-like objects”.
