Location: Tinley Park, IL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:10 minutes
I saw three bright red lights high up in the sky in the shape of a triangle that eventually aligned into a line and slowly disappeared.

My son was at a friend's house in the area, sitting on the front porch. He called my husband and I. We went to the backyard (facing east). We looked up into the sky (a little bit southeast)and at that time that we stepped outside, we saw a triangle of three bright red lights. They seemed to be high up in the sky, and yet so big and red and bright. I did not see any "craft" per se. Then the three lights went into an alignment and one by one within the next few minutes, the lights disappeared into the sky. It looked to me as if they disappeared upward, but I cannot be sure. I am not positive about the date except that it happened in August. I'm glad to be able to report this. There was an article that appeared in our local paper regarding this sighting with your website address. At the time that it happened, we looked that week on a NASA website, looked in our newspapers, etc. and didn't see anything about it. Whatever it was, it was very perplexing and like nothing I had ever seen before. ((name deleted))
