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!
1-3: "Recently, Lake Isabella Paranormal Society was able to conduct an on-site investigation to Silver City Ghost Town located in Bodfish, Ca. Owner and Operator J. Corlew also joined us in our investigation. These pictures were taken by J. Corlew himself and I was given permission to share them with you.
There were several digital cameras and video going during our investigation, but only two cameras were successful in taking some good pictures.
Each and every team member had a personal experience with a ghost, as each one was touched, tapped, or even had their hair tugged."- Kathy Owen

5: "My name is Steve Perkins. I took a few pictures when my son was training in the Royal Marines. I took two identical pics...one after the other, and on this first pic there is an orb following him. My wife and I are assuming it could be my deceased brother who was also in the military."
