Location: Tinley Park, IL
Shape: Light
Duration: 20 min.
I think this may have been man made because of the slow speed involved, like drifting in the breeze.

I saw 3 bright red lights over the south side of tinley park. They arose from ground level very far off in the distance and one at a time kept going up in the sky. They were aproximatly 400 yards from each other and followed the first one exactly. the light was a very bright and rich red color that did not waver in any way as they made thier way east. The lights went up to about 7 or 800 feet in the air before leveling off. Thier speed was so slow I found myself thinking they were very large balloons that were lit up some how. I watched a commercial plane flew by and the plane was just north of them and it did not seem to affect the lights in any way. The plane made no attempt to alter it's course as it passed the three lights.
