This photo was taken with infrared (IR) film by Trevor James Constable on August 25, 1957 in the Mojave desert of southern California. Objects which emit heat will stand out on infrared film as lighter shades while colder objects will appear darker. Very cold areas will appear black. This shot is only one of many living atmospheric bioforms captured on IR film during the period from approximately 1957-62 by Trevor and his friend, Dr. Jim Woods, on the early morning desert plateau prior to sunrise. Some of these photos were included in Trevor's earlier book on this subject titled, They Live in the Sky. His 1975 blockbuster book, The Cosmic Pulse of Life, included this shot along with other photos of UFO's and pulsating, plasmoidal bioforms caught on IR film or in some instances, on regular high speed color film using a 18A infrared filter. Trevor usually used a Leica G 35 mm camera for stills and super 8 color film for motion pictures during the late 1950's and 1960's.
In order to capture these anonmalous events, Trevor would typically perform an exercise he learned from Franklin Thomas called the "Star Exercise" which had the effect of creating a vortex swirl in the ether in the atmosphere above and surrounding the person performing the movement. The longer Trevor performed the Star exercise movement, the larger and more intense this 'ether vortex' emanation would grow. Atmospheric bioforms, dubbed "critters", were attracted to the source of this vortex. UFOs were also attracted to this localized perturbation of the ether. Neither Trevor nor Jim could see these bioforms directly, but they were usually able to detect some sort of quick flash or momentary wavering of the air or in some cases, Jim could detect a feeling in his chest that told him that these creatures were nearby. The appearance and movement of these bioforms often occured very quickly and they could move in and move out of the camera's view within a matter of a second or two. Trevor or Jim had to shoot quickly if they hoped to catch something on film. Trevor told me that only about 1 % of their shots produced tangible results. You can imagine just how much time, effort, and film was devoted by these two men to obtain these images; truly a labor of dedication to further new frontiers of knowledge.
