Years ago in a science class we were shown a film that was suposidly showing footage of a special technique that was filming the human aura. (yes the same aura that psychics claim to see)
Has anyone heard of this? Or better yet know what type of photography was used?

Great! Thanks, that is exactly what I was looking for. I remember now Tesla's work was in the film.

Bio/chem- human aura


Living things...are moist. When the electricity enters the living object, it produces an area of gas ionization around the photographed object, assuming moisture is present on the object. This moisture is transferred from the subject to the emulsion surface of the photographic film and causes an alternation of the electric charge pattern on the film. If a photograph is taken in a vacuum, where no ionized gas is present, no Kirlian image appears. If the Kirlian image were due to some paranormal fundamental living energy field, it should not disappear in a simple vacuum (Hines 2003).
