Strange Orange lights seen on the same day, at the same time, thirty six years ago.

I drove off Interstate 5 and the last thing I remember is the sign,"Butteville Rd."illuminated by an orange glow. Twenty years later a student told me she had her first UFO sighting on the SAME DAY, at approximately the same time. She described a "saucer like" object, about the size of a Buick, giving off a "strange orange glow". In June,2002, I told the story to a class of middle schoolers. One of them raised his hand, telling me his aunt had become nauseous and her dog died when a "strange, orange,glow" passed over her car. This occured "during the holidays", in the early a.m., in 1966!
