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 knows 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 the exact cause 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 can see how orbs appear in photographs of all types (no matter what the cause of them). As usual, look at these orb photos and you decide!
This month we received quite a few orb pictures - many of them with faces.
The faces inside the balls of light are intriguing and more needs to be understood about orbs. Angels & Ghosts hopes to explore orbs more fully in 2008.
1: Angie Landers of Garland, Texas took the nice orb picture at the Tropicana Express theater in Laughlin, NV. This orb appeared more like a glowing light.
2: Do you see the man in the orb?
"My Dad is in the...orb -clear as a bell...his glasses, brown suit; he looks to be petting an animal near his left knee. My second picture is a very bright orb, taken in the same garden." - Jaye Bowe, Webster, NH
4 & 5: Another orb face?
"I took this picture of my daughter a week ago and noticed the white ball on the front of her shirt. When I enlarged it and flipped it, I saw a face." - Connie, Richlandtown, PA
6: Randy Lewis of Parker, CO captured this nice orb at the famously haunted Stanley Hotel.
"We spent the night at the famous Stanley Hotel in Estes Park, Colorado..."
7: Holly DeLaughter of HPI took this bright orb:
"This little fella was playin' with me along the fenceline and then 'something' told me to turn around and 'click.'"
8: Spirits visit during gatherings. Orb is in the yellow square...
"We were visiting my sister-in-law at Alum Creek, in Delaware Co. Ohio, early October. We believe the orb is my son Taylor who passed July 26th in 1997."- Walter P. Stauffer
9: This is a nice moving orb photograph:
"This was a picture taken of my kid and me in front of a friend's house who was hit and killed by a bus." - Ryan Martin
10: Nice blue orb...
11: Christine Jenkins sees a face in this orb:
"My brother is mentally challenged...our mother passed away in 1999. I was wondering if this could be her watching over him."
12: Close-up of the orb above. Is it their mom?
13: "I took these pictures at my sister's house in southern Georgia." - M. Ackerman
14: "A work colleague of mine took this photo of me when I was dressed in a costume...the photo was taken in a building that was built in the late 1920's. It has an extensive history for being known as haunted. It is an amazing photo, because the orb appears to have a face in it." - Miran
15: Nice red orb!
"I was in my kitchen and took the picture. It is surrounding me." - Mary, Seattle
