Characteristics: Lights on object, Aura or haze around object, Aircraft nearby

We witnessed a Pyramid shaped object just above the tree line about 500 feet up moving west southwest at a rapid rate around 8:00ish Central time(Dark sky). There were three distinct lights at what appeared to be the corners, front light had a slight orange tinge and the others were soft yellow. It took about 10 seconds to cross the middle two thirds of the sky we could see. We had the radio on low but there was no loud drowning noises detected as you would expect from a chopper or fighter jet. 5 min later we got a better view of the horizon and noticed a couple of aircraft with the standard running lights moving paralell in the same direction about three miles apart and approximately 10,000 feet moving west soouthwest. There is usually a lot of air trafic in the area anyway since O'Hare airport is only 15 miles away but these were definitely oddities especially the Pyramid shaped object.
