I saw the three red lights in the sky over Oak Forest Illinois. They flashed like beacons. This happened around 12:30am

My friend had come in and told me about the lights that were outside. I didn't believe him and he said he had been watching them for ata least 15 minutes before he came in.

My boyfriend my friend then went outside. My boyfriend came back in and told me that the lights were real. I then went outside myself to see them. They were there and it was the strangest thing I have ever seen.

They looked like stars because they were diffinetly far enough away that they could have been stars but they were flashing. There was three at first and then one red light disappeared. They were at first in the shape of a triangle and then the lined up in a straight line.

The next thing I know the one on the far right disappeared. The almost looked like beacons of some sort. Like a plane has except they were further than a plane would ever be and they moved very very slowly across the sky. They were bright enough where anyone could notice them.

Whatever it was it had no problem flying over a populated area. It also made it easier to see them considering it was a clear night out. If it was cloudy it would have been more difficult to see them.

Eventually I just got tired of watching them and went into the house around 1:30am. They were still out there though when I went in.
