Increased suspicion arises regarding the shooting down of UFOs in Alaska and Canada due to a recently discovered classified memo.

Title: Unidentified Objects Downed in Alaska, Yukon, and Lake Huron: Canadian Government Responds


In a series of mysterious events, three unidentified objects were downed in Alaska, Yukon, and Lake Huron in February. In addition, a Chinese spy balloon was also shot down off the coast of South Carolina. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau received a secret memo detailing the Canadian government’s response to the Yukon incident. The memo raised concerns about the objects’ nature and potential threats they posed. This article will delve into the details of these incidents and the Canadian government’s efforts to investigate them.

February 11 Yukon Incident

On February 11, an unidentified object was shot down over the Yukon region. The Canadian government, led by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, received a secret memo outlining their response to the incident. The memo, titled “Memorandum to the Prime Minister,” was obtained by Canadian CTV News through a Freedom of Information Act request.

According to the memo, the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) had been sequentially numbering the unknown objects to track them. Most objects were found to be innocuous and did not require further reporting or engagement. However, the object identified as UAP #23 reached a higher level of concern and was shot down by the US Air Force.

The memo also expressed concerns about the object’s function, method of propulsion, and affiliation with any nation-state. There were uncertainties regarding whether it posed an armed threat or had intelligence-gathering capabilities. The Canadian Air Force (CAF) led an aerial search for the downed object, but due to challenging terrain and weather conditions, the prospects of recovery were unlikely.

Charette’s Memo and US Response

The memo was sent to Prime Minister Trudeau and his national security adviser, Jody Thomas, by Canadian official Janice Charette. Charette, then serving as the secretary of the Privy Council, raised questions about the nature of the object and its implications.

On February 14, The New York Times reported that the United States had suspended the search for the objects mentioned in the memo. The reasons for this suspension were not disclosed, leaving open the possibility that the devices may never be collected or analyzed.

The “full exploitation” mentioned in the memo referred to the intelligence services’ efforts to learn more about the objects’ construction, operation, and capabilities through foreign material exploitation (FME). This practice involves analyzing plane and missile crash sites to gain insights into potential threats and enemy capabilities.

Alaska Incident and Contrasting Details

On February 10, another unidentified object, referred to as UAP #20, was shot down by an F-22 over water in the northeast corner of Alaska. The New York Times reported that the object broke into pieces upon hitting the frozen sea ice off Prudhoe Bay. The US government claimed that no substantial debris was recovered.

The Alaska incident differed from the other downed objects in terms of available information. White House National Security Council spokesman John Kirby stated that the object was reportedly the size of a small car and did not exhibit substantial maneuverability. Its wreckage was expected to provide insights into its capabilities, but if nothing was found, selected sensor data collected during its trajectory would be crucial in understanding the incident.


The downing of unidentified objects in Alaska, Yukon, and Lake Huron, along with the Chinese spy balloon incident, has raised concerns among the Canadian and US governments. The secret memo provided insights into their efforts to investigate and understand these incidents. However, the nature and origins of these objects remain unknown, leaving many questions unanswered. As further investigations and intelligence exploitation are carried out, it is hoped that more information will surface, shedding light on these mysterious occurrences.
