Chinese spy balloon changed course, floating over central United States-Pentagon

A Chinese spy balloon over the United States has changed course and is now floating eastward at about 60,000 feet above the central part of country, the Pentagon said on Friday, adding it would likely be over the United States for a few more days.

Pentagon spokesman Brig. Gen. Patrick Ryder declined to specify where precisely the balloon was positioned over the United States, saying he didn't want to get into an "hour by hour" cycle of updates. He said people could look up into the sky if they wanted.

He added the balloon posed no risk to people on the ground.
