Incredible 1989 Nashville UFO Photographs Provided by Commander Graham Bethune of the US Navy

The photographs of these UFOs were provided by Commander Graham Bethune of the US Navy. He obtained these photographs of a FS-143 saucer from a close friend who claimed to have rendezvoused with another intelligence and requests anonymity. These photographs were allegedly taken on September 27, 1989, near Nashville, Tennessee and used to build a model for theatrical events.

The photographs show strong circular columns of light shining down from the craft that suddenly stop in mid-air. Our spotlights do not function in this manner.

The Photographer’s Story

nashville3An experienced photographer was driving in a remote area near Nashville, Tennessee on the night of July 14, 1989. He saw a light behind the trees on top of a mountain several miles away at about 9:00 PM. He stopped his car, opened the trunk, picked up two cameras, a Canon AE-1 and a Canon T-90, that had previously been loaded with film. He started walking toward the bright light. The light came over the mountain several miles away and he started taking pictures with the cameras. He noticed a coronal discharge from around the perimeter of the object. It appeared to be materializing and coming into his vision. The bright light continued moving toward him. He aimed the camera at the light and started taking photos. His first photo was taken about 30 degrees above the horizon. When the object stopped he was shooting at about 50 degree up with the object still about four to six miles away. The photographer states, “I had a feeling that the craft was behind the mountain waiting for me and when it appeared it felt like I was in another world, the sounds were far, far away.” He looked at the object but could not see any definition, the light was far too bright and too far away. When he looked through the lens the craft was sharp and vivid. The craft was visible for more than five minutes, but less than ten. It seemed like forever. He changed the lens package from the T-90 to the AE-1 camera and continued shooting using all his film.

He felt he was not in control of what was happening. He remembers constantly pushing the buttons on the back of the T-90, each time he made a change it sharpened the image. The T-90 Canon with his lens package cost $3,400.00 It has four computer chips and at the time was one of the most professional cameras you could buy when purchased in 1985.” There were other witnesses, but they have been reluctant to come forward. They also were taking pictures, but the field around the craft interfered with the film as the craft moved away. They did not have high magnification lens so there was not enough definition to make the craft identifiable. The photographer has had a recent heart attack and an auto accident and does not want his name revealed.
The Canon T-9- was set up pled3with a spacer, two 2-2 X multipliers and 500 mm mirror lens with five filters. The lens package was 2000 mm plus. The speed of the film using the film push process is close to 3000. The camera was set up to take scenery at a distance. The computerized camera with computer chips was set to open the aperture as wide as possible. Commander Graham Bethune. was told by Bill Sherwood of Kodak that the object photographed with this package used on the camera was about five miles distant and would be 100 feet in diameter.ASA Kodak 400 or above film was used. Push processing was ordered when developing the film.

Film Analysis

Analysis of the film shows unusual colors not normally seen in any lighted object. The colors indicate a coronal discharge similar to the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights.) The photographs show a craft with approximately 32 red, white and blue perimeter lights. These lights are not used in normal aircraft configuration. At times they appear all red. At other times they are all white. Sometimes outer perimeter lights appear mixed in color indicating they may have the ability to change color.

Inside the outer perimeter lights are panels of lights. These also appear to have the ability to change color. Although they are predominantly white they are sometimes seen as partially red or black. Assuming the craft is 100 feet in diameter these outer panels take up about 40 feet or 20 feet on each side. Below the center of craft there appears to be a crystal or lights with crystal like appearance. Generally these lights appear blue. craft appears to rotate in the photos. Graham gave me his word that these were authentic photographs of an actual flying craft to the best knowledge. He has known the photographer for 24 years and the man worked for him for ten years. He has always been know to tell the truth and was of high character.

National UFO Center Note: I have observed a UFO at close pled2distance. The colors of the smoke probably a coronal discharge were similar to what I saw. The lights themselves have an unusual depth of color. When you look at a colored light it is normally a white light covered by a lens of red, yellow, green, blue etc. The lights on the craft appear as if the light contain the actual color. There is a vividness of color that is difficult to describe that appears to be in these photos. The fog or plasma is penetrated by the powerful lights shining downward. The lights extend down for an estimated seventy-five feet to one hundred plus feet and seem to stop abruptly. Duplication of this capability is exceptionally difficult to accomplish with any normal lights. I have never seen lights that have these properties except on a UFO, nor have I seen comparable photography. I have over 5000 hours flying time and taken thousands of photographs. I would be very interested in any similar photographs or videos of a comparable craft.

Guest

Made in ‘America’ !!!!

Guest

Thats a old lamp shade reflecting in a window…

Guest

This is fake absolutely real UFO don’t look like that full of lights all around and if we have a closer look the structure looks some kind of transparent how can a UFO fly intergalactic travels and get tremendous pressure, that’s a complete bullshit that’s a home made drone full of LEDs bullshit

Guest

no friggin way!!

Guest

From some movie I guess.

Guest

UFO are real, that is they are ASC- Alien Space Craft, and the evidence confirms that there here vising planet Earth now, but this photo looks fake to me

Looks like something from an ELO concert.

Guest

This was from a desert art show. I knew Graham. Nice guy but wouldn’t believe a word he said

Guest

lol I suppose. He’s gained a following in the UFO community….like some guy who just rolls in to the field has a clue

Guest

David Stinnett I would say he’s known more as a member of a band than a UFO cult?

Guest

Tom DeLonge is the latest incarnation of a UFO cult. Yeah Greer is a creepy as they come

Guest

David Stinnett that’s what I heard, apart from the young boys. I’ve never understood the appeal of Greer, like some I’ve seen around.

Guest

Sure. He’s the biggest liar and hoaxer out there. He skimmed money off Sirius and bought personal real estate….taking drugs….young boys running around. His inner circle left him.

Guest

David Stinnett have you met Greer on your travels?

Guest

They all are lol. Graham was a member of my NJ UFO Congress and spoke many times. By the time he hit 65 he was flying around the solar system with the aliens. Again nice guy but I wouldn’t believe a word he says in the subject. I should upload those old conference lectures to YouTube

Guest

So do you suppose they come out with new models of crafts every year like we have new models of cars?

Guest

I have been to ELO concerts back in the day….This was part of the stage setup!

Guest

If this is true, then it should have already made it to the headlines

Guest

We are very quick to say fake all the time and am not saying that it isn’t but I still can’t believe that we are the only ones

Guest

Even Know The Model Number, Wow

Guest

FS – 143……? They’ve got numbers…!!! Did Lockheed make it then

Guest

Nice pic, hope it’s real…

Guest

ELO Concert

Guest

What the hell is a “FS-143 saucer?”

Guest

Flying Saucer number 143 of a fleet of 500. JK

Guest

Travis Walton spoke about this craft.

Guest

Smoke detector or water sprinkler.

Guest

I want the sport model.

Guest

Great post

Guest

Que lastima que no se inglés, ,,

Guest

Pedro Mesina but that’s ok. I understand.

Guest

Pedro Mesina you sound pretty fluent.

Guest

Seren Thomas gracias por invitarme a esta página de interesantes temas, ,, te lo agradezco pero no sé inglés no entendería gracias amigo por tu buena intención

Guest
Guest

Your welcome Seren😀👍

Guest

Thank you Esa Suliman 👽👊👍

Guest

Obviously it’s toxic fumes from a weather ballon that’s making you see such things

Guest

Ufos dont have lights like that…..the one I saw the have a like LED white

Guest

Gregory Ward I was thinking Art Deco. Would look at home on the Titanic or Stephen King’s Overlook..

Guest

Looks like something out of the eighties like a concert venue ceiling lighting.

Guest

I know, looks like a reflection of a ceiling lamp Eric Kirsch

Guest

It’s probably one of the first one that the US army made .in the 70s when they copied one of the first one in the 50s and what is this with people seeing blue floating balls hovering around the world.

Guest

I saw 12 UFO’s doing patterns in the night sky over Percy Priest Lake in 2008.

Guest

Gimme a buzz, as par our discussion at some point. And the hell it was you, y’all were nowhere near Nashville that night nor were any satellites.

Guest

Dont worry about that. It was me.

Guest

Looks man made

Guest

Hoax…

Guest

Prove what? That someone claimed they had a photo of a UFO? The burden of proof is on there end, not mine. They’re the ones trying to convince us that this is real so why aren’t you asking them to provide proof? They show you a photo and you automatically believe that this is an alien craft?? Instead of asking me to prove that it’s horseshit why don’t you ask them to prove that it’s real then I would be more than happy to say that I was wrong.

Guest

prove it please.
