North Korea Claims New Spy Satellite Is Watching the White House

Date:

North Korea’s newly launched military reconnaissance satellite has already captured images of the White House, state media reports claimed on Tuesday.

The satellite, which blasted into orbit last week, has also taken photographs of the Pentagon, Naval Station Norfolk, the Newport News shipyard in Virginia, and another unidentified airfield in the state. The images have reportedly been reviewed by Kim Jong Un.

“Four U.S. Navy nuclear carriers and one British aircraft carrier were spotted in the photos,” the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said. The report added that Kim had seen images taken on Nov. 25 of Rome, Italy, as well as the U.S.’ Andersen Air Force Base in Guam. No images supposedly captured by the satellite were released.

North Korea successfully launched the Malligyong-1 spy satellite on the night of Nov. 21. Pyongyang said the spacecraft was designed to monitor U.S. and South Korean military movements, though international analysts have questioned how reliable or sophisticated the new satellite will be.

South Korea is planning to launch its own first military reconnaissance satellite using a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket. On Tuesday, Seoul said it would have to postpone a launch scheduled for Thursday due to weather conditions. South Korean Defense Ministry officials said the launch from California’s Vandenberg Air Force Base has been tentatively rescheduled for the weekend, but the date has not yet been fixed.
