Clear UFO sighting in the Mid-Late 1980's, Round craft, moving slowly on a clear night.

Hello, I was about 8-12 years of age when this happened (However, I was wide awake and fully aware).

I looked out of my window and saw an absolutely silent craft in the night sky. It was about 40-60 feet above the ground about 1/2 mile away from me. It flew (silently and slowly) from the left to the right. The craft had a central "belt" around it's diameter. This "belt" of the craft rotated like a ring on a person's finger, while the craft just moved from left to right in the night's sky.

This ring or belt had circular lights on it that were lined up (like diamonds in a channel set anniversary band). They were of different colors, green, red, blue, orange, yellow. They didn't flash, just rotated as the band that they were attached to rotated. I slapped my face, and yes, I was awake. The UFO just flew off out of my sight. I have spoken to one other person who has seen a very similar craft in Indiana.
