Location: Chicago, IL
Shape: Triangle
Duration:2 minutes
Red fireball orbs and about two triangles ascending from chicago lake michigan

We heard a couple bangs like fireworks. We went outside then saw a red orb slowly ascending above down town Chicago. We thought it was a firework or helicopter but it was red and slowly moving left and right and ascending.

Then more red orbs started to slowly ascend behind the first one. Then we knew those weren’t fireworks they were ascending very slowly and close to each other and dispersing in the sky then disappearing.

There were about 20 orbs. A couple were in triangle shape with three points as if tied together but then separated slowly.

The event lasted about 2 minutes
