I dont know that much about astrophysics, so I will present this thoeory. As much as I believe in ET, it sounds like it might have been a satellite correcting itself. falling to close to earths atmosphere, starting to burn, and corrected itself when it could. Then again, I do not know how strong either satellite rockets are, nor do I know how strong Earths gravitational pull on said satellite would be. Could have been experimental air/space craft, which would make sense considering a secret installation off one of the islands of Alaska, and one much further north than even juno. Hell, the base there, Elmendorf is rumoured to have tunnels leading all over the place anyway. As big and isolated as most of Alaska really is, it would not surprise me in the least. lol. Do not take this the wrong way either mate, but it could have been your eyes playing tricks as you were statedly tired. One always has to count in that factor. Point is, no one else saw it but you. this does not discount you, I take it for true myself, but look at all possibilities. Go to flat top mountain, and camp there... THEN look at the night sky.. Completely different view there mate. You will see things that will turn your flesh white with amazement.

I suppose it could all depend on your perspective when, where and you're angle to viewing the phenomena.
If the object was coming towards you, then it may appear to alter speed and course etc because of your perspective
Objects can bounce off the upper atmosphere, but have to hit it at the correct angle to do so
A satellite changing position as mentioned previous could also be the reason
It could also be an alien craft whose operator was not fully concentrating on flying his craft and hit the upper atmosphere, like a driver changing the CD and skirting the edge of the road.
The last point is not meant to be funny, well OK a bit, but lets not forget aliens have supposedly crashed their craft on Earth so are shown to be just as fallible as humans
gave you a star! hope it doesn't fall
