The object flew at an altitude of 55,000 feet and an average speed of 46 kph, said an air force statement on Saturday. The air force said it was conducting investigations in coordination with other countries and institutions “to establish the origins of the object”. The craft spent several days flying over North America, ratcheting up tensions between Washington and Beijing, which said it was a weather balloon blown off course.
