Trevor James Constable's 1957 Amoeboid Bioform 'Critter'

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.

I scanned Trevor's original 1957 print in color in order to capture the B/W print exactly as it appeared in real life, but I then played with the image using PhotoShop 7 in order to draw out more detail.

In the three panel sequence seen below, I cropped the photo to focus on the bioform in the first shot. The second panel is switched over to grey scale and has a filter applied called "equalize." The third panel has been futher enhanced by reversing the highlights and lowlights using the "solarize" filter and adjusting the brightness and contrast to maximize detail. It's interesting to note how the third 'solarized' panel emphasizes a trajectory "track" that the critter seems to be following in the atmosphere. Trevor was surprised and pleased to notice how much detail could be drawn out of his pictures when digitized and ran through PhotoShop. You can try playing with these shots yourself if you have PhotoShop installed on your computer. I've inlcuded three links below so you can click on full sized versions of each of these panels.

Here is the original description of this critter (and other frames) that was pasted to the back of Trevor's original print.

"This is the fourth photograph in a series of six successive exposures made by Trevor James Constable on the Mojave desert in California on 25 August 1957. These bioforms, which are invisible to normal sight, have been recorded here by infrared film and special techinques devised by Constable and described in his book "The Cosmic Pule fo Life". These objects, which Constable claims are an integral part of the overall UFO scene, are biological organisms native to our atmospjere and not extraterrestrial spaceships. When such bioforms enter the spectrum of visible light, they appear as repidly moving, pulsatory light sources and are mutually confused with the more classical, structured interdimensional machines known as flyimg saucers, according to Constable. "

Full sized versions of the above 3 panels are available here:

Panel #1 (316k)

Panel #2 (305k)

Panel #3 (299k)

I will soon post more photos taken by Trevor of critters, UFO's, and other, anonmalous atmospheric creatures (some never shown before now).
