Extremely bright light moving upward in the sky, light disappears, and a triangular aircraft with red/white lights is visible

I was heading to bed around 2:00 and heard what sounded like a helicopter type noise outside. It was very loud and sounded like it was very close to my house. At first I assumed there must have been an accident or something going on at the Bolingbrook Hospital nearby but then saw a very bright vertical light beyond the trees that looked like it had possibly 6 points or at least the light was illuminating in that way. It was a yellowish-orange color and way bigger and brighter than any stars. I woke up my boyfriend who was next to me who thought it was strange as well. At first I thought it was maybe a really bright searchlight but then the light started to move upward in the sky like a rocket would. I would say it did this for about 10 seconds or so. Then the light suddenly went out and I could make out a triangular looking aircraft with red and white blinking lights that started to head in the direction of my house. It moved faster than a plane and I just felt that it was not something normal. I looked up news stories to see if anything could explain what I saw but found nothing. The whole experience has left me a little shaken as I have never seen anything like it in my life.
