UDPATE: The area where the object was spotted this morning matches the flight pattern of a high-altitude balloon as part of Project Loon, which seeks to create an aerial wireless network. The flight pattern of the balloon can be seen on the flightradar24.com website.
Maui Now has gotten several emails describing either a stationary object or slow moving object spotted in the skies south of Kīhei this morning.
Our newsroom contacted the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) office in Honolulu where a representative said they had no information about what it could be, but was willing to look at any pictures of the said object if anyone had any.
If you or anyone you know has pictures of this object please send to [email protected] and we will forward to our contact at the FAA. Mahalo.
