Three red lights seen hovering and moving.

My wife and I, who live near the Tinley Park Post Office at 171st Street and Harlem Avenue, were coming home at the time that three bright red lights were seen hovering in the eastern sky. There was no sound made by any. There were no airplanes in the area which we are very familiar with as we get lots of Midway and Gary, Indiana flights overhead. The lights appeared to make a triangular formation and hovered that way for a couple minutes. I went into the house to get a camera and they were gone. I thought that maybe the lights were from the Tweeter Center for a concert or something but there was nothing scheduled there at the time that would have used red promotional or laser lights. I didn't post this message until today when I heard about numerous similar sightings that night and mention of this web sight on WBBM Radio (780 AM). I am a trial attorney living in Tinley Park and I was blown away by the sight of theses thing. I am a former skydiver and know for a fact that these things were not planes or helicopters. They could move a fairly long distance very quickly and then just stop and hover.
