    They were saying today that a similar one was spotted over South America as well. They had photos on the news, not nearly as pretty as the US photos
    of 'theirs', but I haven't heard if that second one has been shot down or
    not yet. It appears it was the USA who first spotted that one and
    apparently China has admitted that it is theirs too.

    I wondered about that. Since (I think!) the jet stream south of the
    Equator moves East to West, I wonder how it got there and where it was
    launched from?
