Explosive light over Alaska skies

I don't have pictures but am in search of someone who can tell me what's going on in the skies over Southeast Alaska.

Not only have we <as well as many others in town> seen numerous times, unexplained bright lights in the sky that have flashing red and blue and move like a UFO, but tonight topped them all. While standing on the patio, for about 4 seconds I saw an extremely bright object flying in a downward motion with lights that looked like explosions that were so bright, they shone through the clouds.

I've seen falling stars and meteors; this was definitely a UFO.

I remember I saw a documentary once that showed pictures from the atmosphere of spaceships flying around Earth and then what looked like gunfire from Earth towards them, like we were shooting at them.

This is exactly what it looked like.

Just wondering who can tell me what's going on over our Alaska skies.
