Large Orange Sphere's Over Rural Illinois

One evening in October 2004, I don't remember the exact date, I was outside burning our paper trash and noticed three fairly large orange lights in the north west sky. They were each about the size of a dime held at arms length and appeared to be over the nearby village of Secor, IL. They were in an uneven triangular formation with a vertical orientation.

The lights appeared to ascend in a slow manner and simply disappeared. The three lights were large but dull orange spheres. They were not entensly bright and were about 15 degrees above the horizion and rising to about 25 degrees before disappearing.

The entire sighting lasted at least 10 seconds. I even started to run inside to get my binoculars but by the time I reached the house they were gone.
