Lights over Tinley Park

My friend called me outside to look at them. There were three red lights in a linear, equadistant formation and not moving. After a short time they began to move from southwest to northeast, remaining in formation. After a short distance, they stopped and the began to form a triangle formation with the lead light staying put and the other two lights moving north and south to form a triangle. After about ten minutes without movement, the two lights moved back into a linear formation behind the lead light. Five minutes later, the lead light started to move and disappeared. Then the second light started to move and disappeared. And finally the third light. We heard no noise. Being so close to Midway and O'hare airports we see and hear planes often. During this event we noticed we couldn't find lights from a plane anywhere. We thought that was odd. The lights seemed to be hovering over Chicago, estimating angle and distance. Also, Chicago had an air and water show that day. But the lights didn't look like anything I've seen before and I spent six years in the military. The precision of movement and peculiar dissapearance were very strange.
