At Angels & Ghosts, we receive tons of ghost and angel pictures from all over the world, monthly. The most common picture we receive are called "orb" pictures. We do not claim to be experts on "orb" pictures, as many disagree as to the significance of them in the ghost hunting community. Orbs can be caused by moisture, dust, flash reflection, solar flare and spiritual energy. Many have videotaped orbs flying around rooms - some are dust with light reflecting off of it; others are balls of energy that many ghost hunters are not sure just what they represent. We do not claim to have the answers, but we seek to present the evidence we receive and allow our viewers to research and decide on their own.
It is hard to determine exactly the source of an orb for sure...some are downright questionable, thus we cannot post all orb pictures we receive. The following pictures have orbs in them, and we are not sure what caused them. We could claim them to be dust, but do we really know that? We just posted these orb pics together (received from different people), so you could see how orbs appear in photographs of all types...
1: "This photo was taken, (summer 2005) by my mother on her digital camera, in San Diego at Balboa Park. Only a couple days after this photo was taken, my uncle died suddenly, and he was present when this photo was taken. Perhaps his spirit guides were present in his last days." - SarahCalgary, AB, Canada
2: "This photo was taken in Centre Parcs in Wiltshire, England. We stayed for a week and caught many orbs in the forest."- Mark
3 & 4: "...me and my friend, Ben went to the devil's tree last night and took a couple of pictures... in the pictures we got orbs...
5: "I thought you may like these pictures that we took on Halloween night. These houses on this street...are some of the oldest in Boise."- R. Swanson
6: "I have a photo that shows my brother with our two dogs and what I believe to be an orb. The believed to be orb is in front of a bronze statue on a table."-Georgia Corbett
7-10: "What started as an inquiry into a commercial property off of US 41 in Sarasota Florida, I had spheres mess up my interior shots. I wanted to get photos of the outside of the place, but I saw two guys inside cleaning out the mold with bleach. They allowed me to enter and get some photos of what I thought would be potentially a cool space for a club. It turns out that the place had been a church (what denomination, I don't know). Anyways, I had to go back tonight to check it out because I saw that I could see the orbs through the glass when I took a photo outside." - Chris Kurk
11: "I've sent one previous photo of an orb. I am very in tune with my psychic abilities, and I have been living in an older home for the past 2 months, and have taken photos at the moments when I sense a presence, there is a lot of energy in the house, and this is what turned up."-Sarah DeWitt
