disc appears in night sky

I was watching the night sky. Thin, high clouds were racing by against a full moon. Suddenly, the thin ribbons were replaced by thicker, dark clouds. A circle roughly formed, with ribbons of bright blue and silver rippling from the center out to the rim.

The disc slowly began to rotate, about as a fast as a radome on an AWACS aircraft. I watched until it suddenly dissolved, then the thin clouds reappeared.

I'm a former police officer and US Army veteran. I'm familiar with many types of aircraft including helicopters but I've never seen anything like this.
