7 Orange-Red lights hovering over Joliet, IL

My husband and I were driving toward Joliet from Louis Joliet Mall on Route 30, when we noticed about 7 red glowing lights in the sky by Auto Zone and Denny’s. It was about 8pm. It was completely strange. To the north, three were floating pretty evenly spaced from one another and a little further south were three more in a slight triangular formation with another below them. We tried to follow them, but they were disappearing. We followed one onto a side street and noticed that it was EXTREMELY low to the ground (about 3 electrical poles high). As soon as we got out of the car, we saw it just fade out. That was it. They were not planes, they were not flashing, they were orange-red glowing lights moving and hovering slowly. This lasted about 5-10 minutes.
