Gaseous purple orb pulsating in sky very bright lit up area like firework no sound purple light on outside pink light inside

My brother and I were hanging out with a friend of ours. It was late at night and he was bringing us home. After he let us out we were walking to our house. The ground lit up as if a purple firework had been shot off in the sky but no sound to follow. We immediately looked behind us and up. I saw something I have never seen before or have since, it looked like something out of Science Fiction movie/novel. A gaseous purple orb pulsating in the sky. It resembled a mushroom cloud but mirrored on both ends so they looked the same. It was pulsating in and out. Back and fourth. Emitting a bright Purple light everywhere. It seemed to have a core in the middle that was a bright pink. It had these rings and they were moving all throughout and around the orb. Then it disintegrated into nothing. My brother and I looked at each other with complete astonishment. The whole incident was about 10 seconds in total. We live in a Colorado mountain town at an elevation just over 7,000 feet. It was a clear night.
