GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- See anything strange in the sky lately?
As of Sunday afternoon, we’ve got a few calls to our newsroom about an unidentified object above Grand Junction. You have to look almost straight up to see it.
The object is oval shaped and reflective.
We’ve called over to the National Weather Service office here in town, and they told us it's most likely a high-altitude balloon, launched by a private aerospace company.
The three #Thunderhead balloon systems launched by @RavenAerostar for @DARPA on June 17 are still on the air. #HBAL0290 over Western Colorado, #HBAL0291 over the north of Utah and #HBAL0289 in central Nevada. https://t.co/Td2eP5CZHI pic.twitter.com/ESCC61ntEw— StratoCat (@stratoballoon) June 23, 2019
A Twitter account dedicated to stratospheric balloons, appears to show one above our area Sunday afternoon.
Send us your photos, here if you’ve seen it.
