Circular UFO with lights around outer edge in night sky

It was early summer around 1980. I would have been about 12 years old at the time. It was not long after dark. Weather was warm with clear skies. I was in the family room of my parent's house, looking out a large picture window. Windows on both sides of the picture window were open to let in an evening breeze.

Directly in front of me above the trees across the street, a large circular UFO flew directly towards my parent's house. The craft was darker than the night sky and could be seen as a circle. The outer circumference of the craft had multi-colored lights all the way around. Either the craft was rotating as it moved forward or the lights were changing color in a way that mimicked rotation. The craft moved somewhat slower than I would have expected for low-flying light aircraft. The craft's altitude appeared to be below 500 feet. I estimate the craft was 60 to 100 feet across. I never heard the craft make a sound. As it passed above my parent's house, I ran to the front door and out into the front yard. I again briefly saw the craft as it went over the treeline behind my parent's house. The light pattern on the craft was very similar to another UFO report I found here, except the lights I saw formed a complete circle around the outer edge of the craft:
