Odd Cloud Formation Lit Up and Moving Toward and Away from us.

My husband and I were on our deck in the hot tub about 11pm or so last night (8/28/09) Friday. It was sprinkling rain and there was a cloud cover blocking any view of stars as is common in Alaska. We then viewed an odd cloud formation traveling alone and lit up, not like the other clouds at all.

I made mention of it and we started watching it. It seemed to be moving right toward us and we honestly thought it was going to come right over our heads, very very low to the ground. Where was the light coming from? Then it stopped moving toward us and started moving away (west) and seemed to dissipate. Soon after it was there again, but not as close. Still oddly lit up unlike the other clouds and it seemed to move and stop at will instead of moving with the breeze. No opinion or clue of what this was, but we are not given to looking for weirdness in the sky, and this scared us silly!
