Location: Tinley Park, IL
Shape: Light
Duration:30-45 minutes
3 red lights hovering in tinley park in odd shapes that came together as one and flew away.

Late this night, Im not exactly sure what time it was to be honest, it was really long ago, I was just talking to someone about "ufo sightings" and how I had this experience but never thought much of it, even though at the time it was pretty spectacular.

So I googled it and found all this information on it, including this website, it was really wierd, and really interesting because everything I read was exactly what I had seen. And its so hard to explain it to someone that didnt see it and still seem sane. But what happened was me and my gf at the time were outside talking and noticed these lights, one at first, then 3, they hovered in a way, coming very close together at times and then separating, moving in sparatic ways. It was shaped in a triangle at times but not always, and sometimes it was a close knit triangle and other times a very distance but still resembled a triangle triangle. Sometimes the lights were very bright red and other times dim, they did seem to turn white for a min or two, not very long though. Then finally the lights all came together into one and it was a bright red like hovering and finally it seemed to moved away from the earths atmosphere because it slowly got dimmer until you couldnt see the red light anymore.

THere is NOO way this was an airplane as say by some agencies and governments. It honestly couldnt have been explained, they moved in such different and odd ways. Also anything with a motor (helicopers... whatever) would have been heard. you didnt hear anything and no distinct "flying object" was actually identified except for the lights. Not to mention there were 3 then they all came together... thats just odd. No man made object splits into three and comes back together to form one.

We called a bunch of friends and people we knew and they all saw it too. we lived roughly at 181st and 84th ave in tinley park, Il.
