The term Paranormal doesn't always mean or relate to the situation being a ghost or a spirit. It just means it cannot yet be explained. I like this terminology better. Most are jumping to the conclusion its always a ghost or spirit. Not always the case. There could be an unexplained natural phenomena. :tu:

Those with an I.Q. of below 90 do not need to reply to my topics! :tu:

I think 'supernatural' would be a better term for something that is ghostly, etc.

Para just means above or beyond, so paranormal is just saying 'above or beyond the normal'.  Just expanding on the above.  :)

Hi everyone, I'm new here. I found this site while researching orbs. My reason for researching orbs is because I saw one. Only one. A few nights ago I was sitting in my chair about 11pm, I turned to look at both of my large dogs laying on the sofa (taking up the entire sofa), grabbed my iPhone to take their picture, I saw an orb. It was white and about 8' away. I did not take the photo because I was amazed at what I had just seen. At first I thought it was just a reflection from the TV or a car headlight outside. But reflections don't move, or float about 3' above the floor, just over the dogs heads in front of the sofa. Car headlights won't be in front of the arm of the sofa. After I thought about it for a few minutes I went ahead and took some pictures of the dogs, they are so cute!!! But it has still stuck with me, I have no idea what it was. But I am very intrigued. I looked back at the pics and there does seem to be a white light, less bright as the pics ascend. I did not see it until days later when I was showing them to my husband. Hmmmm! Pretty darn interesting.

Just thought I'd share my experience. Btw I have seen the bright squiggly line in my vision followed by an extreme headache. I went to an ophthalmologist and a neurologist, I had a migraine. The orb was nothing like it. I don't know what I saw, I'm just sharing my experience.

I forgot to say that I live in New Jersey, it is January 2013, so there are no fireflies this time of year, they are yellowish green here. When I had the migraine I could still see the squiggly line when my eyes were closed. The light I saw near the dogs moved from right to left  for about 2 or 3 feet and then it was gone. Again, I don't know what it was, but It was cool and amazing!

I do believe, however, that there are things that occur that can't be explained by science or otherwise.

Has the camera/camcorder had its IR focus illuminator disabled?

One of my webcams has these. It's incredible how those seemingly dim LEDs fill the room up with tons of IR light. It's even more incredible how much crap is flying around the room and gets lit up. It makes the room look haunted.

I wonder why these spirits choose to manifest as orb-shaped, whereas others appear as they were when alive.

I was guilty of typing while multitasking (work!), I meant to say has the camera/camcorder had its IR focus assist and/or illuminator disabled?
You are of course correct, camcorder night-vision requires IR illumination; if anyone has images/footage of orbs with a camera/camcorder with all flash and/or IR emitters disabled then that would be worth further study.

There are folks that believe the earth is flat and the moon landings are fake.  There are folks that believe the world trade center and the Alfred P. Murrah building were controlled demolitions conspired by the government.  While I remain open to the possibility of ghosts, I have yet to see any convincing evidence that stands up to scientific scrutiny.  Out of focus dust, snow, rain, insects, lens flair or reflections are not evidence of ANYTHING paranormal!

Here are some fascinating first-hand accounts.
Unusual Experiences with Lighting includes many strange reports, including these two accounts:
  • In January 1984, ball lightning measuring about 4 inches in diameter entered a Russian passenger aircraft and, according to the Russian news release, "flew above the heads of the stunned passengers. In the tail section of the airliner, it divided into two glowing crescents which then joined together again and left the plane almost noiselessly." The ball lightning left two holes in the plane.
  • A "ball of sparks" about the size of a basketball entered a commercial aircraft, apparently through an engine airtake, moved into the fuselage, and proceeded to chase a flight attendant up and down the aisle. She was screaming as she tried to outrun the ball lightning. It dissipated quickly before striking her.
Glenn R. Frazier relates at incident at his grandfather's cottage in upstate Pennsylvania:
  • "I was sitting on a screened porch. I remember a brilliant flash of lightning and a large clap of thunder. Seconds later, my mother screamed. My grandfather and I turned to look in through the doorway and saw what looked like a ball of electricity coming down the hallway from the back door. It was about the size of a basketball and had an off-yellow kind of haze. It sounded like a large stream of water coming through a faucet. When it got to the kitchen area, it flickered and flashed a little brighter, and then was gone."
Bill Melfi was on vacation on a small farm in Tennessee when he had this experience:
  • "I saw two balls of light, one about three feet and the other about four feet in diameter. They were glowing with a blue-green light that was about as bright as a 50-watt bulb and translucent as a balloon. They moved side by side, the larger one leading. The movement was quick and somewhat zigzag. I chased after it with a stick in hand, but they were faster than me. They didn't break up, just disappeared in the woods."



Above are just word of mouth stories.....
