Triangle Shape Craft Near Chicago O'Hare Airport.

I seen what could be called a "triangle" craft but since it was nightime I really couldn't see a definite craft shape. I did see 3 incandescent glow lights (not super bright like Led lights) in a triangular shape with a pulsating red light in the center.

I live 20 miles west of Chicago O'Hare airport so there's always planes in the sky. At the time I seen the triangle "craft" I thought "that's kind of an odd lighting pattern". For the size I'd say about the same as a mid-sized jetliner. For altitude maybe 1,000'.

What is odd is I heard engines powering the craft but it wasn't going as fast as a typical jetliner.

The reason that I took so long to report this is that I've been thinking about it and been watching the night skies for the same lighting pattern...with no luck. At the time I seen it I was thinking that a Ufoligist would call it a UFO...that made me chuckle a bit as all reports I've ever read or heard said they were a silent craft.. .But I heard the soft roar of engines??!!
