The search for remnants of aerial objects shot down over Alaskan airspace and Lake Huron has come to an end after the Biden administration and the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) called off the search.
The objects, which were initially unidentified, were shot down on February 15th after they were spotted entering Alaskan airspace. The search for the objects was conducted by the United States military, but the objects were never located.
The objects were believed to be balloons, but the exact nature of the objects is still unknown. The United States military had previously stated that the objects posed no threat to national security, but the exact reason for the search remains unclear.
The search for the objects had been ongoing for two weeks and involved multiple military vessels and aircraft, as well as the participation of multiple government agencies. However, despite the extensive search, the objects were never located.
The end of the search brings to a close a mysterious incident that had been the focus of much speculation in recent days. It remains unclear what the objects were, and the exact reason for the search may never be known.
