Early in the morning, Taiwanese forces spotted an unknown object falling from the sky on Dongjin Island, part of the Taiwan-controlled Matsu Archipelago off the coast of China’s Fuzhou, and later found the remains of the balloon, Reuters reports.
The statement added that the object is about one meter in diameter with an instrument box marked with simplified Chinese characters, which are used in China but not in Taiwan.
“Preliminary investigation determined that the remains found were part of meteorological equipment, which were taken over by the relevant departments, in order to study them in more detail,” according to the Taiwanese military.
Dongjin is located in the north of the Taiwan Strait at an important passage for all Chinese ships heading south from the eastern province of Zhejiang.
