BREAKING: Flagstaff Police receiving calls about unidentified object, likely weather balloon


The Flagstaff Police Department received multiple calls Tuesday night from the public regarding a brightly-lit unidentified flying object hovering over the city. Officers have been made aware of the reports.

FlagScanner, a local news publication, has reported that “Officers from around the city are also seeing it.”

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has been informed of the incident by dispatchers. Officials at the FAA have remarked that the object could possibly be a balloon of some sort, but there has been no confirmation as of yet. 

Concerned citizens on FlagScanner’s Facebook page have posted several photos of the object, which do appear strikingly similar to some form of balloon:
