Diamond shaped objects hoving over highway in and near Memphis

My wife, two adult children and I were driving from San Antonio, Texas, back to KY on 8/15/2016. We arrived in Memphis between 23:30 and 23:45 on I-40. While leaving Memphis on I-40 going towards Nashville, we witnessed a large diamond shaped object, hovering approximately 1000 feet above the highway. It had several bright lights that alternating from a steady burn to a flickering behavior. There was one red light that remained fairly constant.

We continued to drive because there was no place to pull over at that point on the interstate.

We witnessed approximately 8 or 9 more more similar objects spread over the next 8 to 10 miles of highway.

I was finally able to exit the highway and pull into a gas station where I got some mobile phone video and a photo of the last one.

We then continued on towards Nashville, and eventually took I-65 towards Louisville, KY. We were just south of the Elizabeth Town, KY, exit, when we witnessed another, identical, object hovering to the west of I-65.

We continued on to the Lexington, KY, area, with no further encounters.
