What WAS that near Canopus?

Was packing up the gear at approx 0040, and chanced up at Canopus, to see a distinct glowing "puff" - like a cloud in a totally cloudless sky. It grew brighter, then started expanding. By about 0045 it had drifted slowly SE and had expanded considerably.

I managed to get the DSLR out in time, so will upload the shots later on. Just hoping someone else saw it.

Exploding meteorite? Space craft launch?
