Three lights in Beecher, Illinois.

Me and my husband and our three children were headed to see the Beecher fireworks. We were coming from indiana and following my parents in thier car, with my two brothers. We really close to turning right onto Dxie Highway. I dont know the street name, im not really familliar with Ill.

As we were driving I was looking out the wpassenger window toward the west, and I noticed theses three orangish lights. I noticed they werent moving and were in a triangle pattern. just sitting there. They looked like steady light then later i thought they flashed.

I cant be sure. we kept driving and i tried to get a picture. I took two pictures but by then one of the lights had faded off and only two were visible. It was wierd because it didnt just vanish it was it decided to turn off its self and it just faded away. the other two disappeared after i took the two pictures. we had pulled over by then.

I have never seen anything like it, except in movies maybe. The picture were from a moving car so you can only just barely see the two lifghts above the tree line. They were above a field, but by the time I took the pictures, trees were in my way.

Also, not sure if this is off worth mentioning, but I tried to call my mom to see if they saw the same things, and as soon as I dialed, I lost all signal, and when I told my mom, this she said the same thing happened to them. They were trying to call us, as well.
