A second Chinese spy balloon is traveling over Latin America, the Pentagon’s press secretary said in a statement Friday to CNN.
Officials said that it does not appear to be heading to the United States, where a similar balloon was first reported over Montana, home to one of the nation’s three nuclear missile silo fields at Malmstrom Air Force Base.
“We are seeing reports of a balloon transiting Latin America. We now assess it is another Chinese surveillance balloon,” press secretary Brig. Gen. Patrick Ryder told CNN.
The military is continuing to monitor the balloon as it moves eastward across the central section of America.
