Early Tuesday morning, security officials put the White House as well as the Capitol on lockdown.
There was a potential threat detected when something invaded the restricted airspace in Washington D.C.
But what was it exactly?
According to security officials in D.C., they don’t know. No one knows what it was. In fact, one security source said, “We don’t know what the hell it was.”
Fox News reported,
Security officials received different information regarding the location and speed of the object in question. Officials heard it was “hovering” and were even given “knots” measuring its speed, sources said.
Fox News is told by security officials that the situation went to “Air Con Orange,” which means a suspicious aircraft piercing the Washington security bubble. But security personnel are only supposed to stay at Air Con Orange for a few minutes, before either upgrading the alert or downgrading the problem.
Neither occurred with Tuesday morning’s alert, but Capitol Police sent a notification of a potential threat shortly after 8:30 a.m. People were allowed back in after about 30 minutes.
Law enforcement sources initially told Fox News the lockdown was triggered after an aircraft moving east violated restricted airspace. But Fox News is now told officials may have to go back and review the radar to determine what exactly prompted the scare, with sources saying they got “mixed signals at best” as to what the potential aircraft could have been.
Whatever it was, it was reported as being a “slow-moving blob”. So let’s think about what could have been slowly moving across the sky, but also how would it not have been able to be identified as well.
Perhaps it was a flock of birds that eventually scattered, but would they be slow-moving?
Maybe a swarm of insects? But isn’t it too cold for that now?
What could it have been?
