Green orb seen over the 2014 Canada Day fireworks display inn Leduc, Alberta, with multiple witnesses.

I took my children to see the Canada day fireworks display and a few minutes in we noticed a green ball/orb floating off in the distance, behind and around the fireworks. A number of other people soon started talking around us about the same thing. The initial occurrence of seeing the object lasted several minutes. I quickly dismissed the possibility of it being an aircraft as the flight pattern was not something I know or had a seen a plane being capable of doing. It appeared to be traveling quite slowly, but then it would alter its path very quickly and even zipped up from a straight line into a 90 degree turn upwards. After several minutes, we lost sight of it. The object appeared a short time later on the west side of the fireworks display. It maintained a straight path towards the display going eastward and then it actually stopped in midair for a minute or so and then continued going east where we lost track of it again. As I said, several people arou! nd us and my children all saw the orb.,
