3 large amber colored lights hovering motionless in the sky.

I just exited I-88 and was traveling north on Orchard Rd. near Randall road about 8:00 in the evening on 9/15/06, when 3 large amber colored lights caught my attention well off in the distance and a couple hundred feet or so in the sky. I was driving for about 10 minutes and still couldn't tell exactly where the lights were hovering over, by the time I reached my destination. I'm guessing they were over St. Charles or South Elgin. But what I found so bizarre was that they didn't move at all. At first I thought they might be helicopters doing a search, but there was no searchlight scanning the ground or operating lights on the craft or perhaps light standards like you'd see at a high school football stadium, except there were no supports, and were way too high in the sky. Not only that, but they were just a solid amber colored light, with very little glow around them. I thought for sure other people must be seeing this as there was alot of traffic along Randall road that night. Finally, they just disappeared one by one, from right to left, leaving behind nothing but sky. I contacted the state police, but no one reported seeing anything. Did anyone else see this?
