On Sunday, F-16 fighter pilots intercepted and “decommissioned” a UFO in the sky over Lake Huron.
It was one of four mysterious UFOs that were shot out of the sky by the United States military over the past week.
US military officials have described the UFO over Lake Huron as an octagonal structure and a small, metallic balloon.
However, during a government briefing on Tuesday revealed that none of the debris from the UFO that was shot down has been found in the lake.
Government officials also admitted that they had not concluded with any certainty what the UFO was or what its origin is.

Monday night, The War Zone released audio recordings of the in-cockpit communications from the two F-16 fighter jets that were involved in the UFO takedown over Lake Huron.
In the audio, one F-16 pilot can be heard saying, “I wouldn’t really call it a balloon … I don’t know what … I can see it outside with my eyes. Looks like something … there’s some kind of object that’s distended… it’s hard to tell, it’s pretty small.”
“I’m gonna call it a balloon,” a pilot can then later be heard, describing the UFO.
The object that one of the F-16s shot down using an AIM-9X Sidewinder missile, at an altitude of approximately 20,000 feet, has been described by U.S. officials as an “octagonal structure” with strings attached to it.
According to the Pentagon, the object’s “path and altitude raised concerns, including that it could be a hazard to civil aviation. The location chosen for this shoot-down afforded us the opportunity to avoid impact to people on the ground while improving chances for debris recovery.”
“We did not assess it to be a kinetic military threat to anything on the ground,” the Pentagon added, “but assess it was a safety flight hazard and a threat due to its potential surveillance capabilities. Our team will now work to recover the object in an effort to learn more.”
Until that wreckage is recovered, the U.S. military is saying that it won’t rule out any explanation for what the object actually is. The same goes for previous flying objects shot down by U.S. Air Force F-22 Raptor jets over Alaska and the Canadian Yukon in recent days, which followed the shooting down of a Chinese high-altitude balloon a week ago.
“The size of it, that would be challenging, it’s so slow and so small, I just can’t see it,” one of the pilots is heard saying in the cockpit audio. “Definitely smaller than a car.”
At another point in the cockpit audio, one of the pilots says, “Looking outside it’s like a black-ish, I’m gonna call it like a container, can’t really tell though what the shape is.”
Listen to the audio below while we wait for targeting pod imagery from the UFO incident over Lake Huron to be released. And for them to actually find the object that was shot down.
