I was walking my dog about 1am on August 1, 2017 in my complex.

I noticed some nifty looking clouds that were brighter then others so I got my smartphone out to record them.

Approximately 37 seconds into recording the sky, this bright blue blob that resembled a doughnut shape appeared out of thin air, above me to the left, of where I was shooting.

It flashed several bright colors ranging from light blue to indigo as it wobbled across the sky blinking in and out sight untill it instantly vanished out of the atmosphere.

I went through the recording many times in slow motion and took screen shots from my phone of this thing. I can attach the video clip of this and/or pictures I extracted from the video.

It was strange because I continued recording (atleast I thought) but the video abruptly shut off like 10 seconds after it first appeared.

It was almost 2 years ago but I remember clearly it was small, but extremely bright. It looked like a light blue ball of plasma with a dark blue center in the middle (like a doughnut)
