"Star" war in night sky

I was watching the sky shortly with a clear sky above. There appeared to be a "star" directly NE at about 50 degrees above the horizon. There were multiple "explosions?" surrounding the "star" at random. From the eyes' view they seemed to be anywhere from directly next to it, to 3" beyond it in any direction. The "star" would move in small amounts no more than 1cm from the eyes' view during the "expolosions" The explosions would look like another bright star that quickly appeared and disappeared. At one point I saw "projectiles" (2) shaped like chevrons come from the star toward a target that i could not see. I also witnessed multiple other flashes come from the star that looked like shooting stars. The event has seemed to calm down now. I awoke my wife who also confirmed this event and described the movement of the star as a small orbital pattern and also witnessed multiple "expolsions"
