2nd time tonight-now a single red light in the Eastern sky of Tinley Park, IL

This is my second report for the night. Earlier we saw 3 red lights (very bright at first) in formation and a few minutes ago, my neighbor (one of the 10 people that saw the earlier 3 red light formation) called and said that there was a single red light in the sky, Eastern sky of Tinley Park from 18000 and 88th Avenue.

What was strange is that you could see planes all over the place in the other parts of the sky as we get a lot of flight pattern from 2 of Chicago's airports, and this light was not moving at all. Just stationary for the most part.

Then it blinked, and faded a tad, and then it was gone. But it did not fade away, it just blinked and then faded to black in 2-3 seconds.

A very similar aircraft with lots of flashing lights also flew very, very close to the red light a few minutes after we first saw it, and unlike the other planes in the area, this one had lots of flashing lights (almost like the lights on top of a police car) and it seemed to fly towards this red light intentionally as if it was trying to observe it.
