Green Light in Sky at Moss Beach

While at Fitzgerald Marine Reserve, at approximately 4:46 PM, the sun was setting so the perfect moment to capture the moment came upon me. Although, while looking back the pictures after I got home, between the several photos that I had captured, there is an apparent green object, almost in a full circle, but not quite.

I took several photos of the sunset, focusing the sun in different corners of the shot, and the circle appears in the same spot. I have done my own research, seeing if any others that occupied the beach that evening had possibly captured that same thing, but have yet to find anything. In addition, I have taken into consideration that it could be a possible meteor or iridium flare. I’m not fully convinced though.
