Mystery objects were spotted over Kansas City prompting the National Weather Service of Kansas City to comment.
The National Weather Service tweeted out on Thursday, June 20 that “we honestly have no explanation for the floating objects over Kansas City,” along with a sub-tweet of an image showing two “floating objects” in the sky.

Social media was buzzing with many joking that an alien invasion was taking place. However, hours later it was revealed that the mysterious flying objects were in-fact a top-secret DARP (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) project, called Adaptable Lighter Than Air (ALTA) program.
THIS IS IT
THEY’VE COME BACK
FINALLY, IT’S ALL OVER https://t.co/vhZs0Isvgs

ALTA was developed to test high altitude lighter-than-air vehicle capable of wind-borne navigation over extended ranges. The balloons can fly at altitudes of more than 75,000 feet while carrying a small payload.
DARPA said the ALTA balloon flights were coordinated with the FAA.
The three DARPA ALTA balloons from Cumberland, Maryland, about 80 miles west of Camp David, on June 18, 2019. According to C⁴ISRNET, DARPA was tracking the balloons.
Dr. Alexander M.G. Walan, ALTA program manager said: “The balloons are controlled from fixed and mobile ground stations, with consistent point-to-point links and satellite relays.” He also noted that the balloons have sensors used to assess flight performance. The balloons have a different shape from weather balloons because they are larger and look like orbs.
However, the real purpose of the mission is classified.
Why DARPA decided to make the balloons look like giant alien spaceships is a question everyone is asking.
