Two clusters of white dots in the daytime sky

I am the former MUFON state section director for Kansas City. I work for a large corporation located in midtown KC. I am making this report on behalf of two of my coworkers. At approximately 10:30 on the morning of August 9, 2004, one of my coworkers, who sits by a large window on the north side of our building, saw two clusters of white dots traveling from west to east at an altitude of between eight to twelve thousand feet and at a distance of about two to three miles. He called to the coworker who sits next to him and together they watched these objects fly out of sight. The objects in both clusters appeared as white, round dots. The first cluster contained about five objects and the second cluster contained four objects. The first cluster was at a slightly higher elevation than the second. The objects in both clusters maintained a tight formation. Because of this, and the speed of the objects, neither witness felt that the objects were balloons. In fact, they had no idea what the objects were. Both witnesses are college educated. The weather at the time was clear with a few scattered clouds and no discernible wind. One of the reasons that I'm posting this sighting is that it seems to be remarkably similar to a sighting that took place in Joplin, Missouri in the early evening of July 31st.
