Five UFO's over Gurnee, Waukegan IL area

I saw what I thought was a satellite moving across the eastern sky moving north very slow and high enough in the sky to be a satellite.

The white light broke into five separate lights and flew in no specific pattern, like bugs around a light bulb. Then the five lights made a perfect triangle and continued across the sky in this formation for three to five minutes. At this time I went inside to get my mother to see what was happening. After She came outside and I pointed out where they were in the sky, the lights started to fly around again in no specific pattern. The five lights then flew into a single light, turned red and flew directly east, making a 90 degree turn straight out over Lake Michigan with such a speed as to leave a streak in the sky.
