Five saucer shaped objects which were glowing orange seen moving south east over Flint, Michigan

Back in 1966, I was in grade school in Flint, Michigan. I was outside to do an astronomy project, and when I looked into the sky I saw 5 football shaped forms that glowed a solid orange, moving across the night sky in a V-shape formation in silence. They appeared just over the treetops and looked close, each about 3/4” in size and a few inches over the trees. This was a couple days before they were reported being seen in Ann Arbor, MI, and called Swamp Gas. I know what I saw, it was not a maybe kind of thing. I’m only letting you know about this before I forget. Sorry I don't have more relevant size and distance estimates, I was 11 when I saw the “saucers”.

The next day, during the daylight, I was at Oak elementary school. Myself and my entire class saw a silver object that looked like the typical flying saucer with the saucer shaped base and the smaller top. It had different colored lights around the edge of it, and it didn't look like what I'd seen the night before. I’ve often wondered it that sighting was caused by mass hysteria of school children, but I don’t think so…
