THE PHOTOGRAPHER'S STORY
An 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
top of a mountain several miles away at about 9:00 PM. He stopped his
opened the trunk, picked up two cameras, a Canon AE-1 and a Canon T-90,
had previously been loaded with film. He started walking toward the
light. The light came over the mountain several miles away and he started
taking pictures with the cameras. He noticed a coronal discharge from
the perimeter of the object. It appeared to be materializing and coming
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
The photographer states, "I had a feeling that the craft was behind
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
see any definition, the light was far too bright and too far away. When
looked through the lens the craft was sharp and vivid. The craft was
for more than five minutes, but less than ten. It seemed like forever.
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
sharpened the image. The T-90 Canon with his lens package cost $3,400.00
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
but the field around the craft interfered with the film as the craft
away. They did not have high magnification lens so there was not enough
definition to make the craft identifiable. The photographer has had
heart attack and an auto accident and does not want his name revealed.
The Canon T-9- was set up with a spacer, two 2-2 X multipliers and 500
mirror lens with five filters. The lens package was 2000 mm plus. The
of the film using the film push process is close to 3000. The camera
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
this package used on the camera was about five miles distant and would
feet in diameter.ASA Kodak 400 or above film was used. Push processing
ordered when developing the film.
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
aircraft configuration. At times they appear all red. At other times
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
have the ability to change color. Although they are predominantly white
are sometimes seen as partially red or black. Assuming the craft is
in diameter these outer panels take up about 40 feet or 20 feet on each
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
the photographer for 24 years and the man worked for him for ten years.
has always been know to tell the truth and was of high character.
Editor's Note: I have observed a UFO at close distance.
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
feet and seem to stop abruptly. Duplication of this capability is exceptionally
difficult to accomplish with any normal lights. I have never seen lights
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
