Shape: Circle
Duration:3-5 seconds
Very peaceful popping explosion followed by circle of colour.

Mid-September 2014, 1-2:00am St. Albert, Alberta

Approximately 30 feet above tops of street lights, perhaps 70-75 feet above ground, a small explosion with associated popping sound. Sound was very soft popping sound. The ambient sound prior was very quiet because time of night. This allowed me to hear and see just at the right time ( I was unable to sleep and smoking on the balcony).

Circle of light green colour similar to northern lights green followed explosion and lasted about 3-5 seconds. Circle was quite round and appeared to be approx. one meter in diameter. Colour dissipated downwards over the 3-5 seconds. Reminded me of popping spores I have seen on documentary.
