Strange bright flashing lights behind Koko Head

From my kitchen I can see Hawaii Kai Marina and Koko Head, at 2 a.m. on February 24, 2022, I was getting a drink of water in my kitchen and looking out towards the water, right above Koko Head and I notice a bright electric light blue light shining in my kitchen then the bright light started to flash, very fast, the lights I noticed were light electric blue and orangish red (like the color of fire). I thought it was a helicopter going up in some electrical flame. I put my water down and ran to my lanai sliding door, while running towards my lanai sliding glass door, I notice a circle or ball like craft? Spinning, no sound at all just this huge big swirl in the sky, swirled so fast that the blue and red lights looked purplish as it was spinning, Iíve never seen color like that, it was so bright and flickering these beautiful colors and then in a blink of an eye it was completely gone. Nothing, no sound, no anything. It lasted about 5 seconds.I ran to wake my husband up about 30 seconds after I saw the lights. By the time my husband came to the lanai the moon was just starting to rise towards Koko Crater (not Koko Head), that is towards the left of my view, Koko Head is on the right side of my view. The moon was a huge half moon that night and it was yellow, it lite up the sky.
About 15 minutes or so later I noticed a ionic smell in the air. I was in my bedroom, but I could smell that. Iím not sure it
if thereís a connection, but I thought I should mention it.

You can contact me, if you want to. I donít have a photo of the lights, I have a photo of the sky about 40 minutes after the incident, just to show my mom where exactly I saw the craft.
And it was hard to say if the craft emitted beams, possibly. It was so fast and it was swirled only once I believe before it was gone, it it was flickering.
