The Best UFO Pictures in Years 1980-1989

Charleston, S. C.
1980 April 4, Charleston, South Carolina. Bill Herrmann was mesmerized as he took this photograph while standing in a field. He was staring at a UFO with a 40 ft. diameter. The UFO would hover at times, and at other times slowly move. The UFO made a buzzing sound. A traditional silvery, shiny disc shaped object.
France, c. 1980. The witness was sitting on the passenger's seat; taking landscape photographs under the rain when suddenly this luminous object appeared. The photograph is from the UFO files of the Gendarmerie Nationale, which does not list much about the picture. Be sure and see the larger image on this one. Quite impressive it is, as a type of large beam can clearly be seen from the object which seems to hover below a mountainous forest.
Vancouver, Canada, 1981. On October 8, 1981, Hannah Roberts was traveling toward Kelsey Bay by the Isle of Vancouver.Along with friends, she stopped to take some photographs of the surrounding landscape. Several days afterwards, when the photographs were developed, they noticed on one photograph a discoidal object in the sky. They do not remember noticing anything in the sky at the time photograph was taken. Richard F. Haines, a retired NASA scientist who became a famous Ufologist, carries out a thorough analysis of the negative and cannot discover any tampering either. His analysis is inserted in the scientific report of the Sturrock Panel.
1981-Argentina-This photograph was taken in Saavedra, Argentina by one Leopoldo Diaz. No other information is available at this time.
LaBaule, France, 1982. One among 10 photographs taken in one minute with his Fujica Ax5 by an anonymous witness in the ponds of Sandun, close to Guérande in Loire Atlantique on February 6, 1982, at about 09:00 P.M. The witness was driving when he saw a large red-orange light at the height of the treetops, but when he went out of the car and advanced in the field he first saw one, then two, three, four luminous balls of a size he evaluated to 50 cm appear on the spot, close to one another. Towards the end of the observation, a large white luminous flash made him panic and flee.
1982/83 East Germany. This is an excellent photograph. The pic was given to UFO researcher Michael Hesemann on a lecture tour. A retired officer of the National People's Army of the old GDR entrusted the photo to Hesemann, telling him that a comrade of his took the picture during a close encounter one night during a training exercise. A photo from that domain is extremely rare.
1984-Hoboken, New Jersey, May 9 1984. Taken by Philipe Orego. Image shows either a triangular-shaped object or three or more objects flying as a unit. Taken over the Manhattan skyline. The photograph has been examined by researcher who found no sign of a hoax. Nice pic!
Nuzidath: Israel, date uncertain, circa 1985. This picture was taken in the village of Nuzidath and published by Gil Bar aided by Adrian Dvir's technical equipment. This picture is a difficult one to draw any type of conclusion from. Are we looking at a bright light of a domed top with windows below, or is it something else.
1987 Corydon, Indiana. August 23. At approximately 10:20 PM, an object described as brilliant orange, suddenly materialized in the SSE. The suddenness and the brilliant orange, flare-like characteristics were unmistakably unusual. The elevation of the object was approximately 20-25 degrees at the beginning of the sighting. The object appeared to be an orange headlight and appeared to be either hovering or moving toward the witnesses. At one point there was a rapid descent down to the left, all the time the brilliance varied only slightly. Several times the light winked completely out, only to flare up again. After about 5-8 minutes, the object went into a flat W-E flight mode at a relatively slow rate of speed at an elevation of 10-15 degrees. Actually a frame grab from video.
Connecticut, 1987. Randy Etting was taking a walk outside his home. A commercial airline pilot with over 30 years experience, he always looked at the sky... he saw a number of orange and red lights approaching from the west. He got his binoculars and called his neighbors to come outside. The object by this time was a great deal closer and seemed to be over I-84, just east of Etting's home... the lights were shimmering like distortion from engine heat, but he could hear no sound... "As the UFO passed over I-84, cars in both the east and west bound lanes began pulling over and stopping. The UFO displayed a semi-circular pattern of very bright multicolored lights. Five motorists reported that, as the object became visible, a number of cars lost power and had to pull off the highway.
1987-Gulf Breeze, Florida. Of the many accounts of UFO sightings, photographs, and videos, the sensational reports that originated in Gulf Breeze, Florida are some of the most controversial. Gulf Breeze was a small city of approximately 6,000 at the time of the wave of sightings that began in the winter of 1987. News of UFO photos par excellence spread rapidly and far, becoming a world-wide sensation, and the subject of a plethora of newspaper and magazine articles, and television talk and feature programs...continued in next clip.
1987-Gulf Breeze, Florida. Though many sighted the elusive flying craft and snapped photographs of the glowing lights, the majority of attention was on one Edward Walters, a local building contractor. According to Walters, the sightings began on November 11, 1987. He was working late that night when his attention was drawn to a light coming from his yard. As he went to the window to get a better vantage point, he saw a glowing object partially obscured by a 30 foot tall pine tree in his front yard. Racing outside to get a clearer view of the object, he was taken back by the sight before him. He was staring at an object with the shape of a top...
1987-Gulf Breeze, Florida. It had a row of dark squares which were separated with portals between them. The craft seemed to hover just above the road, showing a glowing ring around its bottom. Ed ran into his house, and grabbed his Polaroid camera. He snapped off several photos of the craft before deciding to get even closer. He headed into the road. As he paused in the street to take more photos of the strange object, it began to hover almost directly over his head. Walters was then hit by a bright bluish beam which shot from the object...
1987-Gulf Breeze, Florida. He was literally lifted from the ground by its force. It was then that he heard a voice say, "Don't worry, we will not harm you." Images began to enter his mind. Ed stated the images were revealed to him "as if they were turning the pages of a book" The next thing Walters remembered was waking up. The glowing UFO was nowhere to be seen. Only a few days later, on November 17, Walters took his photographs and story to the local Gulf Breeze Sentinel newspaper. Ed discussed the photographs with the paper's Editor, and began to relate to him the details of the sighting. The legend of the Gulf Breeze sightings had begun...
1987-Gulf Breeze, Florida. When the news of the flurry of sightings spread beyond the close knit community of Gulf Breeze, soon the whole world was involved. Both pro and con were well represented. Shortly after Walters' photos hit the local newspaper, more UFO photographers came forward with their stories or sightings fortified with the proof; more images, both still and moving, and the war was on. Walters became everything from a community leader to a con man, depending on who you listed to...
1987-Gulf Breeze, Florida. Walters accumulated a catalog of 40+ photographs, many of them controversial. Although many of the photos were corroborated with simultaneous sightings of the craft by others, even the UFO community was divided. This debate continues even today, and the photos and videos from the time period of roughly late 1987 through early 1992 are being analyzed and evaluated. To read the entire background of the Gulf Breeze sightings, see my article HERE.
1988-Puerto Rico. As you can see, this seems to show a jet fighter chasing a discoid / or wedge shaped object with a protuberance on top and bottom. A reader has sent in this info on this picture. Picture taken by Amaury Rivera. He also took several others after running to his car to get his camera after being abducted@ the Laguna Calthena.
1988-Near Alton, Illinois-I was scanning some old photos into my computer when this turned up. It appears to be a disk. The photo was taken in the fall of 1988 in the Alton, IL area. © Paul Sharp
1988-Czechoslovakia. August 15. This photograph was submitted by a man whose grandfather worked for the government in classified material. He claims that after his grandfather's death in 2001, he went through a lot of material, finding UFO videos, photographs, etc. This is an excellent picture, if it is legitimate. This is one of those that we need more information on.
1988-Wloclawek, Poland-Jan B. told about his observations of unidentified flying objects. He even managed to take a photo of one disc in 1988. The first sighting witnessed by Mr. Jan B. took place in summer 1988. In early afternoon, Jan B. was with his cousin in a room and then his son appeared screaming about falling star. When they went out all of them saw a hovering disc located about 300 meters away. The UFO was reflecting sunbeams and was as if flashing. Jan B. went for his camera and two other witnesses were observing it with binoculars. Polish UFO Journal 2006 ©
San Jacinto, California, July, 1988. This photo was taken by John R. English, past Director of the "International Aerospace Hall of Fame" (IAHF), San Diego Air & Space Historical center. He was involved in the research, selection, and installation of several US and foreign Astronauts, as well as other significant aviation related candidates. He was a Licensed pilot S.E.L. and a "Diamond" level Soaring pilot (18 years), with approx. 400 flight hours logged, 350 in high performance Sailplanes in multiple flight envelopes and conditions.Two aircraft observed the anomaly, and a chase plane photographed it.
El Progresso, Guatemala, 1989. This photograph was taken at El Progresso, Guatemala, March 1989. The object was observedby a good hundred witnesses. It is eerily reminiscent of the Trinidade Island photographs, but somewhat better in quality. The photo was shown in local newspapers, and several witnesses documented the taking of the pictures, and the object itself. You can clearly distinguish a hollow or dark section of cone shape at the bottom of the UFO. An excellent photo.
1989-Rio de Janeiro, March: In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in March of 1989 at 5:00pm, a witness observed and made a photograph of a dark, lenticular object flying rapidly about in the sky with broken clouds reflecting the late afternoon sun. The photograph was made public by Irini Granchi through A.J. Gevaerd and UFOLOGIA. Nice one!
1989-Somewhere in Mexico. I have absolutely no details on this image except what can be discerned from the photograph itself. It appears that someone was checking out their livestock, or filming the same, and saw the oval shaped UFO, stopped and took a photo. Not bad really. If you have more on this please send it along. thanks.
1989-France. The photograph was shot in July 1989 in the Hautes-Alpes in France near the ski resort of Orcière-Merlette (altitude 1850 meters) at about 00:30. The witness indicates that the sky clear and without clouds. The witness was tired of a one-day excursion, when suddenly his wife called him to come see something unusual in the sky, the witness used the expression "mothership." The witness came by fast. He tried "with difficulty" to take a photograph of an object which "does not make any noise of propeller" and "no trail of jet engine, on the other hand an extremely powerful luminosity and a noise which can be compared to electric wire of 300 or 400 thousands volts." The witness indicates that the visible details on the photograph could not be seen at the time because of the luminosity, and that these details "are to date still uninterpretable to me ...??"
1989-Nashville, Tennessee. September 27. 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.
1989-Nashville, Tennessee. September 27. 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 shinning down from the craft that suddenly stop in mid-air. Our spot-light do not function in this manner. Three more photographs below...
