People have spotted two white objects floating above Kansas City.
And NWS KansasCity tweeted: Sorry, but we honestly have no explanation for the two floating objects over Kansas City:

Kansas Citians had their eyes to the sky Thursday evening, trying to get a glimpse of two mysterious white, spherical objects floating over the city just before 8 p.m.
The two mysterious floating orbs have been photographed by people across the city.
Several people who spotted the objects thought they could be weather balloons.
“Not from any National Weather Service office, at least,” NWS Kansas City answered in a Tweet, and thus dismissing the possible explanation.
Not from any NWS office, at least… had a similar report from Kearney, but weather balloons move and apparently these are stationary. Not sure what they are!— NWS Kansas City (@NWSKansasCity) June 21, 2019
“Had a similar report from Kearney, but weather balloons move and apparently these are stationary. Not sure what they are!“
So what are they?
Later on, people leaped to a better answer.
Closer shots do make them look a bit balloony.
People suggested they were Google Loon balloons, high-altitude balloons that will be used to provide Internet access to remote rural areas.
But Google too denied they had been launched by them.
But, like with a lot of UFO sightings, it did turn out to be a kind of balloon, just from a slightly different organization. The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), themselves the subject of some mystery, confirmed to KMBC that they were likely some of their balloons in test flight, rather than translucent alien spacecraft.
These mysterious orbs floating over Kansas City were some mysterious balloon tests from DARPA, also known as the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, a mysterious agency of the United States Department of Defense responsible for the development of emerging technologies for use by the military.
