Pilot reports unknown flying ‘object’ in airline audio of close encounter

This is a very interesting happening in recent weeks and I wonder how often this happens and isn't captured by radio enthusiasts.
A prime example of data being freely available to us in avenues that otherwise might seem fringe.

Here is an excerpt and a link to an article

Steve Douglass, an airline radio enthusiast, first captured the audio chatter for his blog. American Airlines later confirmed that the audio was authentic, and referred all further questions to the FBI.

“Following a debrief with our Flight Crew and additional information received, we can confirm this radio transmission was from American Airlines Flight 2292 on Feb. 21,” American Airlines said in a statement to several outlets. “For any additional questions on this, we encourage you to reach out to the FBI.”

Douglass said he was listening to the airwaves on Sunday when he heard the strange tone of the pilot’s voice.
