Triangle UFO in Frankfort ILLINOIS

I was in Frankfort Illinois (suburb of Chicago)Me my fiance and my friend Ashley were driving down us 30 and we saw strange lights in the sky we stopped at the stop sign and watched the lights turn into a bright red(the 3 corners were at least) Triangle with a red light off the side. As we were watching it it would turn directions while the triangle maintained its shape.

At 6:55 pm I called Frankfort, IL 911 they said that there was multiple calls regarding the sightings.

So I did the only thing I could, as I had no camera besides my camera phone which was not a very good at taking clear picture. So I started driving towards the UFO to get a better shot from a closer distance. after 30 miles we were into Indiana and the UFO was just a little too far out of Camera Range.

While we were driving towards Indiana There was a lot of people sitting on the side of the road taking pictures. I never stopped to get any numbers and I would love to be able to contact those people.

As we were driving into Indiana. The lights dimmed down as we saw 6 lights coming out of the south the strobe colors on the new lights were RED WHITE AND BLUE and they were fast movers. I think they were the air force because they circled the area for over an hour. I called all of my friends and family that were in the area and they went outside to look but they were too far away at the time. I also called channel 2, 5, & 7 news and they said that they would look into it through the police blotters. I left my number and so far I haven't gotten a call back.

But I'm hoping that someone comes forward with pictures or videos that we can submit to the UFO hunters or the news.

I never got a good picture of the Craft but we saw the objects for over 2.5 hours. The lights on the craft would switch from red to a bright orange about an half inch wide in the sky which is pretty big. there is no way this could be an airplane or a weather balloon or flares, because the lights would go out for a while then go back to a higher intensity and change color but it always kept the same formation. I lived outside of a air force base and have seen a lot of different aircraft flying and I have never seen anything like it. It reminded me of the '05 Tinley Park, IL sightings (which i saw too after my friend called me to look outside) If anyone has any pictures or videos please submit them. I am sorry I don't have any pictures but I will review the video some more and see if there is anything good on it.

Thank you
