3 bright Orange lights over Tinley Park, IL slow moving

Late on Sun at or around 8:30-8:45 I was looking South East and could very clearly see a ball of orange light that was made up of 3 such balls. They did not have any type of avation lights, white , strobe or green and red. They were heading due East by North East steady. The 3 lights then sperated and began to move away from each other for a time then 2 of them started to form back up again then after about 30 or 40 min they passed behind or above the overcast sky and I was not able to pick them up again. I have watched the sky and I pride myself on being a aviation buff I have never seen that color of orange red glow from a craft, I have never seen anything that bright or to that fact not make a sound, they did look like they were hovering or moving at the time I witnessed this with the wind..

Very strange... ((deleted))
