Never seen a flash like that, white flash, the dog was acting strange.? the possible explosion seem to flare out like a donut black ctr

I was walking my dog and cat facing NW there was a bright flash like a do-nut, at first it appeared to be a strobe from a plane, but I did not see it continue. The flash was between the moon and the star Polaris. If the Zenith is 90 degrees it was approx 45-65 Deg.

The skies were high stratus broken where the flash was seen.
