Shape: Other
Characteristics: There were lights on the object, The object emitted beams, There were aircraft in the vicinity or aircraft chasing the object
This was observed happening in our friendly skies (lighted objects hovering in the sky with helicopters flying that way @ ~2300 hrs).

As I was driving along interstate 40 leaving Memphis Tennessee, I observed 4 objects in the sky spaced a fair distance apart from each other. I could not tell the exact shape of the objects; however, the lights were square at the bottom and then out from the middle of each of the top 3 sides of the square was another light (a short distance from the box). The objects were not moving but were hovering in the same place in the sky.

There was a beam of light shining to the west (toward Memphis) coming from the first 2 of the 4. This was observed close to mile marker 35.

As I approached mile marker 52, I observed 2 helicopters in the sky crossing the interstate flying toward the direction of the objects.

I continued down the interstate and as I came to mile marker 72, I observed 2 more helicopters in the sky. As I approached mile marker 75, it looked like 2 more of the same shaped objects in the distance (northern direction).

I found this to be unusual. Not only the unidentifiable objects in the sky, but that number of helicopters in the sky at that hour of the night.
