Large disc shaped with light panels around the edge of this disc

This event occurred during the summer of 1976. I was vacationing in Orlando, staying at my grandparent house. I had set up a tent in the backyard next to the pool and was next to the tent drying off after the last swim of the day..when all of a sudden, I noticed a large disc shaped saucer approx 50 ft above my grandparents neighbor's house. There were light panels (I don't remember the colors) around the edge of this saucer. There was no viewing bubble..or window on top of this disc..you know, what flying saucers are normally described as..but as the disc just seemed to float there...I felt no fear..just curosity. I walked through the house and into the front yard..and then noted that the disc seemed to jump in the sky to the left..and then head south in another leap..out of sight and in an instant. This viewing has always made me curious of what is truly out there..People have dismissed it as an angel or someother type of supernatural being...But I have always been curious.
