Hi mate, I saw it too! Same time (approx 12.40am) near Canopus.
Initially to the eye it looked like a dense Globular Cluster and my immediate thought was - that's not meant to be there!

No cloud in sight either, so I raced inside to find my DSLR. I've got photos with a 35mm lens and will share in the morning. I quickly reviewed the shots as they were coming in and the object has a distinct circular shape. It also moved relatively quickly as it tracked South East towards the horizon.

My preliminary guess is a space craft launch.

Cheers, Evan
