Eyewitness describes filming possible Chinese spy balloon

STORY: “It just kind of… seemed like it had a comet trail or tail, and then it just, like, totally stopped and just started hovering,” said 26-year-old Alverson on Friday (February 03).

The Chinese spy balloon that Alverson may have captured has changed course and is now floating eastward at about 60,000 feet (18,300 meters) over the central United States, demonstrating a capability to maneuver, the U.S. military said on Friday, in the latest twist to a spying saga that led U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken to postpone a visit to China.
