Shape: Triangle
Duration:3 minutes
dull reddish orange triangles in a y formation flying north around downtown chicago

i was staring at the sky as i usually do, watching planes, when a particularly noisy plane caused me to look in its direction, and in that same area of the sky i spied about 7 or 8 triangluar shapes flying in a Y-ish formation. these objects were a dull reddish orange in color, and had no other visible lights. the objects weren't glowing themselves, not in an ambient way, possibly an internal glow. they were headed north, and moving without sound - definitely faster than a flock of birds, possibly faster than the other aircraft i saw in the sky, in a Y formation that changed slightly as they headed across the sky - to more of a boomerang shaped formation. i was able to watch them until they disappeared in the sky due to distance - about 3- 5 minutes total viewing time.
