Three balls of red over Tinley Park, IL

Around 20:30 I was called outside by my partner to witness three brights lights hovering in the hazy night sky above our townhouse. Our townhouse is located near 18600 South Oak Park Avenue in Tinley Park, Illinois. It was a damp and hazy night. We both watched the three very bright red lights hover above us. They had no other color to them besides bright red. They barely moved and made no sound. The lights stayed mostly in a triangular formation, but it flexuated from time to time. These lighted objects gradually moved over time towards the east, their pattern eventually became more irregular. One became dimmer, then dropped down a bit before disappearing from view. Then another eventually disappeared from view, but not in any particular direction. The last remaining one was visible on the eastern horizon for another 5 minutes. The duration of this entire episode from my perspective was about 20 minutes.
