Shape: Light
Duration:30 minutes to 1 hour
Started as one light and then split into 3, one heading north, one heading west, and one heading east

At 3:30am Chicago time I was getting out of my car to head inside from getting home from work. I sometimes look up and enjoy the view of the stars and I also do this because of when I get home. This morning I got out of my car and noticed what appeared to be a star. After observing it for a minute it split into 3 lights. One moving to the north, one to the East and one to the west. The brightest of the 3 headed north. The one that headed east I lost track of once it got into the tree line. After about what felt like forever which was actually about 1-2 minutes the 2 I could still see stopped. I ran inside to grab my camera to get a video of it. When I returned outside I noticed one of them heading west, south west and managed to get a video of it moving through the sky. I lost track of that one once it hit the tree line. The other two stayed in the same spot for a little while longer. The bright one that headed north would move then stop, then move again. It looked as if it was moving northward. The other one started to move back and forth as if it were shaking. '

After about 20 minutes, they stopped moving. I stayed outside for about a 30 minutes after the last sign of movement. After that finial 30 minutes passed there was no longer any movement in the sky as if it never happened.
