Green circle on Canon LCD

Hi all-

I was recently shooting an event where I was highly dependent on my Canon Speedlite 580 EX with my Canon R6 camera.
Part way through, I started seeing a thin green circle centered in the camera LCD. This seemed to be associated with the flash firing spontaneously once or twice.
I'm guessing this is a spot metering mode, but I'm drawing a blank online. I also have no clue why it would spontaneously appear/disappear.
Does anyone have experience with this?

Thanks

Jay

It’s probably the same on each display (I don’t know the R line very well) but we’re you seeing this in the viewfinder or on the flip-out display?

I was definitely seeing this on the flip out display. I need to take a bunch of flash photos to see if I can get this to reappear. Canon tech support had no idea.
