UFOs Over Michigan Baffle Multiple Eyewitnesses: Could It Be Swamp Gas?  --- When I see stuff like this, more and more often I wonder if they could be quadrotor drones.  They can fly in formation, giving the appearance of possibly being a solid object from a distance, but then the lights move out of formation, indicating it isn't really a solid object at all.  But if these are drones, then who is flying them?
