At Angels & Ghosts, we receive tons of ghost and angel pictures from all over the world, monthly. The most common pictures 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 in front of the camera lens, with light from the flash reflecting off of it; others are balls of energy that many ghost hunters are not sure just what they represent. The latter produce their own light - some outdoor ghost lights, for example, have been proven to be electrical discharges of plasma, while others have not yet been figured out. Is this plasma, spirit? No one is for sure, yet. 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. We post these orb pics together (received from different people), so you could see how orbs appear in photographs of all types (no matter what the cause of them).

5 & 6: Second and third pictures taken by Sandra:
"I like to take my camera with me on my walks around the small town I live in. Last night I took some pictures of a church. The first picture came up blurry with lots of circles; the second one...there appeared to be many orbs;and the third...one big orb. After I took the third picture, I started feeling extremely weak...almost faint. Then as I walked past the church, I felt much better."
