Duration:20 minutes
3 laser red lights forming a triangle and at times a straight line traveled west to east slowly. after 20 minutes one disappeared. Ano

We saw the lights over Tinley on August 21st so we have been looking alot more at the sky lately and have our phones programmed to call each other if it happened again. Tonight it did just that.

Three bright (laser-like) lights coming from the west and traveling east at a slow rate of speed. I received the call when they were directly over my house. There was enough time for me to go out see them and then run back in and get my camera and binoculars and take some pictures and video as well. The lights were initially in a straight line from my perspective and slowly transformed into a triangle. They seemed to continue in a triangular pattern although their reletive positions changed throughout its eastward course. As I watched their eastward progression with binoculars the triangle seemed to have its peak pointed north and the base to the south. The top south light seemed to move down quite quickly and become lower in the sky than the light that was initially lower than it. It then disappeared and only 2 lights could be seen. There was no sound. I could not see any structure around or between the lights. Because there were clouds and no stars visable, I could not tell if anything was visable through the triangle.

Just now I came back in the house. At 21:25 I received a call that another single light was coming from the west. It could be seen due west above the house line moving on a course east northeast. This single red light flew over the house and as it approached a 1:00 position it was lost in the clouds. These clouds appear to be very high as there has been alot of air traffic seen this night and all planes visible.

This occurrence of a single red light traveling from the same direction as the previous 3 was the same situation that occurred August 21, 2004.
