Trianglular shaped craft over I-55 near Springfield, IL

I was traveling north on I-55 coming into Springfield just before exit 90 Toronto Road, the skies are cloudy, no precipitation, and dark outside. I saw these two bright lights level to each other. I wondered what they were since they weren’t moving and close to the ground. It was about a couple hundred feet in the air, higher than the telephone towers, but not much.

As I got closer to the exit and closer to the object, I noticed that it was a triangular shape with another light in the back. After I passed under the exit, I was directly underneath it and could see the bottom was completely lit up by the 3 lights and 1 small blue light in the middle. The first thing that came to mind was “This isn’t completely normal. I should take a picture”. So I rolled down the window and held my phone out the window to take the picture. I wanted to try to get another picture but when I looked again the object was gone.

The 2 pictures included are the same photo, one of the is cropped and zoomed.
