Anderson Cooper 360
Anderson Cooper brings you highlights from CNN's premier nightly news program AC360.
The Pentagon says a second Chinese spy balloon is currently transiting Latin America but doesn’t look like it’s headed toward the United States. U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken postponed his trip to Beijing after the first spy balloon has been spotted over the United States. The Chinese foreign ministry claims the balloon is a “civilian airship” used for weather research and it “deviated far from its planned course.” Montana Democratic Sen. Jon Tester chairs the Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, which will be holding hearings on the balloons in the near future. Tester tells Anderson Cooper he’s seeking “some explanations” and wants to make sure if this ever happens again, “no good things” will come out of it for China.
Plus, the highest peak in the Northeast could face wind gusts over 130 mph which could make the wind chills as cold as minus 100 degrees. Francis Tarasiewicz is a weather observer and education specialist at Mount Washington Observatory. He walks AC360 through how he prepares to go outside in temperatures that could feel like 100 below zero.
