3 lights in a triangular formation in the north sky

I live in Frankfort IL.My wife and I were sitting on a neighbor's patio the evening of August 21st. We had just finished our block party.While we were chatting, I noticed 3 red lights in the sky just to the north of us. We were facing West, but I saw them out of the corner of my eye. So I faced North to get a better look. I watched them for a good 45 minutes. One light was at 12 o'clock, one at 6 o'clock and one at about 7 .The objects were at a 45 degree angle from where I was standing. It seemed to be about 5 or 6 miles away. I am on about 205th and 80th Ave. I didn't hear anything, but after we left the neighbors, I kept watching from my kitchen window. They seemed to get dimmer, and the one at 7 o'clock was now even with the one at 12. Then they just kind of faded.

The lights were very bright at first, kind of like the ones on the power lines.
