Small town Lake in the Hills, IL sees triangle formation similar to the ones over Tinley Park 4 years ago,

I was with my girlfriend walking towards sunset park in Lake in the Hills, IL, and we were walking towards the carnival there to go see the fireworks.

I looked up and pointed out a "plane" (so i thought) to my girlfriend, that was red in color. I then saw another one following it which looked identical. We both decided it wasn't a plane since an acutal plane passed it and it didn't have the same color, and plus it was at least 2 or 3 times smaller than the 2 redish orange lights. Once the plane passed a third red light came out from behind the trees and there these "fireball looking" shapes were following each other in a triangular formation.

I later exclaimed how they almost looked like fire over a piece of paper flying through the sky. They appeared to move out of the South, and out Northwest.

My girlfriend had told me it was even more strange when she saw the 3rd one because she was watching a thing on dateline that day about UFO's and how there was one case in Tinley Park, and those also formed a triangle pattern, and were pretty much an identical case.

When I went home that night, and looked it up, I found the video: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/24695796/?pg=14#DTL_10UFO The video on dateline about the Tinley Park triangle, and I have to say it's creepy to see the IDENTICAL image of these 3 orange balls of light flying through. Anywho, if you watch the video you'll get an Idea of what me, my girlfriend, my mom, my brother, and a ton of other random observers at the fair saw last night on the 31st.
