NORAD said a 'radar anomaly' was seen, but jets 'did not identify any object to correlate to the radar hits.' 'With questions about the Chinese spy balloon still unanswered, the Biden administration must be fully forthcoming with Montanans and all Americans.' Canada's defense minister said it was a 'a small cylindrical object' that was not as big as the South Carolina spy balloon. Several officials also said the object shattered into pieces after being struck by the missile, adding to the mystery of what the object truly is. The Pentagon said on Wednesday that four previous Chinese spy balloon flights over the United States passed over sites that would be 'of interest to the Chinese'.
