A different take on the three lights above Tinley Park, IL 0n 08/31/04

I have recently read the report listed on your website that describes the lights seen during the 08/31/04 Tinley Park incident as being part of one object and would like to take this opportunity to disagree. I and my wife saw the lights and I believe that they were three distinctly seperate objects. After being alerted to the lights by a family member in Oak Forest we looked up from the area of 179th street and 67th Avenue. In the Eastern sky we saw the three lights in what appeared to be an almost straight line from top to bottom with the bottom light a little further to the right (South) of the others. As we watched the middle light moved to the right (South) of both of the others forming a triangle of sorts. A couple of minutes later the bottom light moved up into the place that second light (the one that had moved out when the triangle was formed) was and a semi-straight line was again formed before the lights disappeared. This movement is why I believe that these three lights were completely autonomous and seperate.
