Transparent ship with triangular positioned lights in Rockford, Illinois

I was playing tennis and saw two bright white lights. It could not have been an airplane because there was no flashing. The lights were not so bright that I could not see well, but bright enough to notice from 2 miles away. I stopped to look and from its original SE heading it turned, going NE. While turning it pitched about 70 degrees and I saw three lights. These three lights made me report this as a triangle shape from their position in respect to each other. The light that I did not see until it turned was slightly red in color. I could not see the body for it must have been transparent. I only saw the dark blue sky behind it. After turning, I could not see it because it went behind a tree. From that point, I did not see it again. I went around the area and noticed aircraft, probably United States air force, moving around. There were at least 3 of these, which is very unusual for one area in the country. The planes did not appear to be chasing the UFO, b! ut rather as if searching for it.
