Red Lights again in Tinley Park, second sighting in two months

Three soundless red lights moved very slowly eastward, mostly in a boomarang formation. They would shift formations occasionaly, and once or twice seemed to stop completly. One of them seemed to be on "point". They were higher than most of the normal aircraft, but I am rather close to an airport. It seemed a helicoptor was sent to check them out coming out of the south, but didnt really hang around or get too close to them.He just zipped north and then west. It also seemed a jet was after them from the north. As the lights began to reach out further into the horizon the lead light sped forward, while one moved north and the other south. Then they just kinda twinkled out and were gone. Most of the event I captured on film along with many other local residents. Over 200 calls were placed to local law enforcment. This is the second occurence i know of in a 2 month span.
