3 Triangular UFOs Sighted in Lake Forest, IL

While a couple friends and I were at the beach, there were 3 triangular shaped objects at opposite directions of the sky. They all came together as one, conformed, and shot back in opposite directions. They were pretty low to the ground. Airplanes are typically much higher. The three objects were traveling extremely fast and disappeared into the sky eventually. From research, I learned that there is a naval base it Great Lakes, IL, which is about ten miles from the sighting, so this could be a possibility. However, I don't understand the motive behind what happened if it was Navy organized. The triangular flashed red and yellow very quickly as they moved together and until they disappeared. I got a vague glimpse at one of them as they passed, and it was nothing like I've ever seen before. Not an airplane, helicopter, or anything of that nature. A UFO sighting or something else?
