Strange orange Light over Northern Illinois

My sightings first began the week after 9/11/13 the first time I noticed this light I was in the car with my friend we where driving home at first I noticed a singular Bright Orange Light. We stared at this light for a few seconds then notice 2 less bright light approaching the first making a triangular shape. After a minute or two the other two lights stayed and the Original light vanished at a blink of an eye. My second sighting happen about 4 days after driving home from work I looked up at the sky an noticed this Bright Orange Light in About the same position it had been the last time. After a about 2 minutes it again disappeared. Now the third time saw this light I knew where to look an around the time I should look because I noticed it appeared at around 20:00 and 20:45 this time it was not a Singular light but instead it was in a Triangular Shape with 2 other lights. I Watched the 3 lights Hover over the Northern Sky an about 5 minutes later two of t! he lights branched of in different directions one flew overhead the weird thing is it was only one light and it moved silently trough the sky(I thought it was a helicopter again) Then the main light I have witnessed just vanished.( I have lived close enough to O'Hare to differentiate a Plane/helicopter From a Star and this Light is Neither)
