Background

Jordan Lowell is a professor of Astronomy at Miskatonic University in Arkham, Massachusetts.

During the events of The Whisperer in Darkness (2011) played by David Pavao

During a debate hosted by Davis Bradbury, Charles Fort talks about the evidence he has gathered of creatures from other worlds. Albert Wilmarth suggests that the reports are from people seeing ordinary objects and letting their imaginations run wild. Charles brings up that the descriptions of beings have been consistent across cultures. Albert notes that people used to believe in witchcraft, but everyone knows better now. He asks Charles if he has seen any of the creatures he writes about and Charles gets Albert to admit that he has never even been to Vermont to investigate the claims. Davis then ends the debate.

Charlie Tower and Jordan are talking when Albert, George Akeley and Nathaniel Ward walk in and they and Charles go into the study and George shows them photos of animal tracks that are pincer-like. He also shows them a photo of stones that the creatures dance around including one that looks like the ones in the draft copy. One of the photos is of Henry Akeley the night he shot one of the creatures, but the creature is invisible in the photo. Jordan takes the photo and George says that he sees the creatures flying and hears them talking. Jordan uses stereoscopic viewers and shows the others how the dead creature can now be seen. Dean Hayes walks into the room and says the local paper wants to take a photo of him, Charles and Albert. Charlie sends him away and Albert still refuses to believe the creatures exist. Charles suggests Albert go to Vermont. George tells them that he plans on moving to San Diego. Everyone but Albert and George then leave the room.

Later, Jordan excitedly shows a fellow Astronomer a new planet he discovers, Pluto.
