3 orange lights fly over petersburg Illinois

At about 10:52 PM in Downtown Petersburg, Illinois I and 3 other witnesses all saw the same UFO flying overhead. It covered about 50 degrees of the sky in no more than 10 seconds. It was triangular in shape with an orange glowing light on each point of the triangle. It had absolutely no sound as it passed through the sky. During the time it was flying overhead my friends and I were able to determine that it was nothing man made.

It passed overhead from a direction of Northwest and flew southeast until we couldn’t see it due to light pollution of fast food signs. The lights at first made me think that it was a collection of birds, but upon realizing that they were all too uniformly spaced to be anything of the sort. It was amazing how fast it was flying because right after we looked a plane and it appeared to be going at least 10 times faster than the plane.

The size in comparison to the moon was about 3 moons in the area of a triangle. The area between the three lights blocked out the stars behind it. It was like nothing I have ever seen in my life. There is no other way to explain it. It was a large triangle shaped craft of some sort that moved swiftly through the sky and made absolutely no sound.
