Several co-workers and I were at work by the quarry in Hodgkins, IL and saw something in the sky.

Several co-workers and I were at work by the quarry in Hodgkins, IL and saw something in the sky. It was a clear night, just a couple days after Christmas and the area we were in was located around forest preserves and low lighting. We looked up towards the north end of the sky because there were several lights in the distance. Everyone kept saying they were planes but then quickly dismissed that idea when the lights began to change from white to blue to red in very short bursts, so fast that the colrs seemed to blend togather. These lights were stationary in their positions. There were five of them: three formed a perfect triangle and the other two just stayed outside of the triangle. They never moved for five minutes and then all of a sudden one would disappear completely and reappear on the other side of the triangle. This pattern repeated itself several times, but the triangle always stayed constant and the lights kept flickering colors. We didn't stay outside long because we had to work and also because no one belived it could be a UFO, may be just something that was ahappening over Lake Michigan with helicopters or something. Helicopters don't flass several colors at an amazing speed, stay stationary for a while and disappear completely and reappear.
