Three orange glowing lights traveling together in the form of a verticle triangle in the night disappear into the clouds.

I was driving west down East Street in Rockford, Il with my son. Ahead up in the night sky to our right we saw three round glowing lights. They were moving in a southerly direction. We decided to turn right into a parking lot and get out of the vehicle and look up at them. When we pulled in we were directly under them. They were in a vertical triangle position. Not horizontal. My son kept thinking they were balloons because the glowing lights looked like burning flames that you would see from a hot air baloon. They were low and making no sounds. Rockford does have an airport and we have seen planes often. Planes have red flashing and white lights and make noise. Not these orange passing what ever they were lights passing in the night sky just above our heads! They faded into some clouds and then disappeared. I doubt anyone would be flying in a hot air balloon in the dark. And three of them at that. And then to be perfectly traveling together in the shape of a perfect triangle. Too weird. Also, I did witness an air plane near the object.
