Unusual object dropped from airplane, lit up half of the sky.

We were in the mountains and I noticed out of the corner of my eye an airplane flying overhead east of us. It flew just past the mountain next to us and dropped something that was lit up as it fell to the ground. As soon as it hit the ground it seemed to explode, causing an enormous flash on the other side of the mountain. I know its not really a "UFO sighting" but it was a damn unusual sighting, so I figured I'd put it up here.
