Suspected Chinese spy balloon spotted over Montana

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken will postpone his trip to Beijing due to a Chinese surveillance balloon flying over the United States. China's Foreign Ministry said Friday that the balloon was a civilian weather balloon intended for scientific research that was blown off course. The balloon is flying high enough, above 60,000 feet, so that it isn't a threat to civil aircraft, Pentagon officials said. It is expected to remain over U.S. airspace for a few more days.
