I saw round solid color objects flying in pairs in daylight

While heading back home from my friend's house, I happened to look up in the sky. It was almost dinner time when I was heading home. I looked up to the sky as I was walking home and something caught my eye right away. Since the object was very high in the sky, I had to check my vision my looking at nearby objects such as a tree to reset my eye focus. Then I looked back to the sky and saw the same thing. I saw tiny objects flying in formation heading south, parallel to highway 101. They were solid objects and were not omiting lights. They look like small metalic balls with different colors, flying in formation. They flew in pairs. About 5 total. One flew alone in front and had a pearly red color while the other 4 flew behind it and was a pearly blue color each. The four that flew beind flew in pairs so when you looked at them, you would see the red ball infron by itself, two blue balls behind it, and two more blue balls behind the first pair of blue balls. They were moving and was heading somewhere, not hovering in one place. There was no sound and no trail behind them to indicate it was a high flying aircraft. If it were high flying aircrafts, there would be a distinct siloute, an airplane shape to it. Usually, when you see high flying planes, they either have smoke trails behind them or they fly solo. These balls flew together without any trails left behind them. That was the first time I saw UFOs. Later on I saw a UFO sightings show called "Sightings" and saw a story about a similar sighting. They described the exact same thing I saw; the color, and the formation. Everything was exactly what I saw. The sighting on the show was dated around 1920 to 1930. At that moment, I knew that it had to be real since I just saw something that someone else saw more that 50 years ago. It couldnt have been military because I don't think that the airforce from the 1920s would be flying in the same formation in the 1990s. Also, the sighting from the 1920s was seen in a diferent state I was in. I hope that if anyone out there saw the same thing, the same flying formation and color, they should speak up so it can reinforce what I have just said. The more sightings there is in different areas, the more credible it will be. Also, i've continued to research and watch shows on UFOs and havent seen any story of sightings similar to mine. All the sightings describe the same thing, triangles and lights. Mine was different and I still continue to wait to see if there is anymore sightings like mine.
