Vortex in SW sky.

My wife and I saw one of these in Maryland (USA) this morning. August 28, 2014, at 0510 hrs EST., it was large like bigger than the moon usually appears, but the moon was not in our sky this morning. It had a spiral movement as though something was emanating from it and perhapse one revolution per 5 seconds. looked like a opening tunnel vortex and it changed from a deep-red corona to a white haze as it dissapeared.

It came back a few seconds later, like 30 seconds later, more hazy the second time. We freaked out and sat on the ground as I was worried that there would be a sonic boom, but there was no sound effects that I could hear after all... it was hand size at arm's length away and seemingly not in our atmosphere because it had a far distance look similar to the aurora borealis.
