#AtoZChallenge - B is for Balloon

On January 28, 2023, a Chinese surveillance “spy” balloon, 200 feet tall with a payload of several thousand pounds, was seen over Alaska.  It was allowed to drift across the US for days, but was finally shot down by US fighter jets off the coast of South Carolina.

Did you get it right?

Here’s the teaser for letter C. Remember, it’s an event from 2022 or the first 3 months of 2023. Comment on something related to the answer without giving the exact answer. Let’s play!
