Orland Park Illinois. July 4th 2003,triangular object right over fireworks

My daughter and I were driving east on Interstate 80, between Gougar road and LaGrange road, going to a fireworks display, put on by The Village of Orland Park. We were running late, so we were looking north as I drove, in the direction of the fireworks, (approximately 2 mi. away), to see if they had already started.

We soon noticed a triangular pattern of lights, ( I think 5), traveling very slowly from east to west. It seemed like it started at the fireworks location, which is approximately 159th St,. and LaGrange Road. It was hard to determine what size the thing was, but seemed very large.

I was meeting my brothers at their office building where we usually sat on their roof to view the fireworks,(very close to them). I tried numerous times to contact them by cell phone, but to no avail. Either I couldn't get thru, or they were unable to hear their phones ringing.( Fireworks had yust started at that time).

My daughter and myself, upon exiting Interstate 80, at LaGrange Road, stopped on the top of the overpass, facing north and continued to watch this object till it was out of view, going west.
