Nighttime UFO sighting in east Pierce County, wa

At the above time and date my roomate and I were on our roof having a cigarette when he said he saw fireworks in the sky to the southeast of our home. When I looked to see what he saw he told me that they were just underneath the plane he was pointing at. The object that he said was a plane was orange in color and was moving very slowly toward the north. It had no blinking lights but just a steady orange glow and seemed to be fairly high up and far away. As I was waiting to see fireworks in that vicinity I saw a light fall directly down from the object. It was smaller than the large light but the same color and was falling straight down for about seven or eight seconds and then would disappear. My first thought was that it could be an airplane breaking up, but the larger light continued to move slowly then eventually looked like it stopped from our viewpoint. As it was stopped we saw the same balls of light fall from it four more times, each one disappearing after about five to ten seconds. The larger object then began to move again due east and appeared to be climbing in altitude, and another light dropped from beneath it. This fell straight downward until it disappeared. We watched as the large orange light continued east and got smaller until it vanished about 50 degrees up in the horizon. We live in an area with lots of commercial and military air traffic and I have never seen anything like this.
