Kite shaped craft hovering over residential area in Haverhill, MA

While driving home from work on I-495 South in Haverhill, MA, just past Exit 51/50?, I noticed an object in the distance with multiple lights. Given the time of year, it was pitch black, but also rush hour so there were hundreds of cars passing below this craft. The craft was hovering to the right of I-495 about 100 yards off from the side of the highway with an estimated altitude of 200 yards. Below was a small residential area.

An accident had been reported a few exits up so at first I assumed it was a news helicopter. However as we got closer I noticed that the object was too large to be any helicopter that I know of, and because it was stationary, it couldn't have been an aircraft, especially that close to a major highway and residential area.

The craft had 5 lights; 4 white and 1 red on the underbelly. I've seen plenty of shows about UFO's and I've never seen anyone describe a 4 point kite shaped UFO (the short side of the triangle was slightly v-shaped, creating the 4th point). It appeared to be about 150-200 feet in length with 3 lights at, what I can only assume, was the tail end and 1 white light at the front tip. The lights didn't strike me as overly bright, nor did they seem to have any offensive or defensive purposes. They were very similar to the lights you'd see on the tips of aircraft wings. I don't know what it was.

I am a college educated, internal communications professional. I consider myself to be extremely observant and well informed.
