saw 5 orange disks bobbing up & down and side to side watching us at a missle base

I was in Il Nat.Guard.went to practice emergency call-up at AA missle base. Sat in barracks doing nothing when a fellow guardsman came in ans said come out here and take a look at this. I went outside and looked up at about 75 degrees were 5 dull orange disks. They were bobbing up and down and moving from side to side.My first thought was they were helicopters part of call-up. I thought they were too close together and I did not see rotors. The guy who told us to come out said those are not helicopters.I suddenly realised they were U.F.Os. I watched them for a while and went back inside.I also realised they were watching us too.
