Location: Memphis, TN
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.
