Was a UFO spotted hovering over the city of Sendai, Japan last month or was it a weather balloon? No one seems to know…

A UFO was spotted hovering over the city of Sendai, Japan last month. The large, white spherical shape appeared to be a weather balloon. However, according to Live Science, when the Japan Meteorological Agency was asked if the Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon (UAP) belonged to them, they responded that the strange object wasn’t theirs.

It was widely reported that the craft remained stationary for quite some time before drifting over the Pacific Ocean. Interestingly enough, close up footage of the UAP revealed crossed propellers which are definitely reminiscent of a drone.

Yet in a routine press meeting, when asked about the origin of the anomaly, Japan’s Chief Cabinet Secretary, Yoshihide Suga had no knowledge of a weather balloon being launched or any other type of research or reconnaissance craft.

With no one claiming any information on the balloon, media speculation began to run rampant. Some people thought it might be a high-tech spy drone from North Korea while conspiracy theorists pondered if it might be aliens distributing coronavirus.

So, if it isn’t a UFO or a secret military project, then what on earth could it be? Searching for a practical explanation, it could be Loon. What exactly is that?

The official definition of Loon is a “network of balloons delivering connectivity to people in unserved and underserved communities around the world.” In other words, a mobile provider or aerial cell tower.

As of yet, no government agency has come forward and claimed Loon as an explanation for the UFO sighting. Check out the video and draw your own conclusions.
