Stephen Maynard Caliendo discussed the Chinese spy balloon and other aerial objects

When a Chinese spy balloon floated across the U.S. in early February, it ignited a firestorm of concern on Capitol Hill and led to the cancellation of Secretary of State Antony Blinken's trip to China amid already fraught relations between the two countries. China has maintained it was a weather balloon that veered off course. But the balloon was doing something much more sinister, according to the U.S. There have since been a number of other incidents involving flying objects, raising even more concern.

Stephen Maynard Caliendo, dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at North Central College, interviewed with reporter Tia Ewing of FOX 32 Chicago on what surveillance, if any, might these aerial objects be capturing.
