Silent craft with 4 bright lights one red on top that floated then excelerated far and high in seconds.

My wife and I were driving home on a clear sky dark evening.A mile from home we could see a very bright lighted object in the sky. The light was clear/white. We were on 173rd st.going east.As we came to a stop sign one block from home it was floating above us heading southwest.Two round overpowering clear lights were on. As it moved closer two more lights same size came on. Now there were 4 in a row.They didnot shine down. They just kept us from making out the shape of the craft.It moved west right over us.Then in seconds took off north then southwest out of sight.Big to very high and small in seconds.It did not even seem to turn but just reversed direction. One small red light on top.No sound.Probably 5 miles in altitude and ten miles down range in seconds.The lights made it impossible to tell the shape of the vehicle.The two additional lights came on seperately like switches were thrown.This normally crosses the commercial flight path to midway and Ohare air ports in Chicago. No planes were present during this sighting.
