Watch the Chinese Spy Balloon that Crossed Missouri Get Shot Down
The alleged spy balloon from China that has kept everyone's attention for the past couple of days is no more. What is believed to be a surveillance balloon that crossed over Missouri has now been shot down.
As we shared early Friday, the path of the Chinese balloon that's expected to have been used to spy crossed the entire state of Missouri including air bases and sensitive sites. Saturday afternoon, the spy balloon was shot down by the US Air Force.
Brad Panovich shared video on Twitter of 2 US Air Force planes circling the balloon just prior to shooting it down.
This is the moment when a weapon first hit the balloon.
It was then that it completely exploded and began to fall into the Atlantic Ocean near Myrtle Beach.
Here's a screenshot showing the contrail of the US Air Force plane that shot the balloon down.
As this is a developing story, it will be updated once new details are provided by the United States government.
