silver gold disc flew over Montgomery County Fairgrounds left to right, did a 90 degree upwards and disappeared

At the Montgomery County Fair (sometime in summer either 1979 or 1980), my two friends and I saw a silvery/gold disc fly over the horizon (a quarter would have covered the disc), flying from right to left. It turned 90 degrees and flew up, until it was very small, seemed to dart around in a dance and disappear. That’s all. I believe.
