It is a sentence with more than one independent clause and at least one dependent clause.
In grammar, a compound complex sentence is made up of two independent clauses as well as at least one dependent clause. An independent clause can stand alone, while a dependent clause cannot, since it is not a complete sentence.

(as is the subordinant conjunction, and "Aliens attacked Earth" is a complete sentence.) Compound-complex: As we ran onto the car, aliens attacked earth, and the military retaliated. (like te first sentence, as is still the subordinant conjunction, except I've added "The military retaliated", making it a compound-complex sentence. :D
