Claims About Unidentified Flying Objects
Numerous claims appeared online following reports about three unidentified flying objects shot down over North America. The flying objects were seen over Alaska, Michigan, and Canada.
These events triggered a wave of misinformation and fake imagery, including CGI shared as UFOs near the moon and others seen in residential areas. Many users linked misleading and fake imagery to extra-terrestrial explanations. Meanwhile, others made links between the “identified flying objects” and natural disasters, including Turkey's earthquake.
