Those who think ORBS are ghosts are wrong! A true ORB and I hate using the term ORB. Is a solid form of mass that generates its own light source. If its transparent its dust or a reflection of a moving object etc; Check out this article I wrote on our website that gives a brief explanation what to look for when examining a photo or video.

There are all ready dozens of articles, and evidence that show the same thing you are saying......( all posted here also )

A new one pops up every 3 months or so, and people still post pictures of their " orb " in a haunted place :(

Fact 1 about orbs: they are not paranormal. Ever.

Any other "facts" are untrue.


'A phantom,' said my Uncle Mycroft, who had just materialised, 'is essentially a heteromorphic wave pattern that gains solidity when the apparition converts thermal energy from the surroundings to visible light. It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

A proofreader wouldn't go amiss... "Photographs are hard to come by" - huh?

Orbs were explained as mundane back in the 90s, way before digital became commonplace.

Do you have evidence to back your opinion up?..........


Next time you see one with your eyes, video tape it, and say exactly where it is, and where it is going....



There is plenty on orbs being dust, vapor, etc......

Already posted/discussed in other orb threads:
Over the last 30 years or so I have sporadically seen what I have perceived to be small self-illuminated balls of light (deliberately avoiding referring to orbs...), invariably either red or blue in color, and between 1cm to 5cm in size. I have seen these while conducting night photography research during which I have been capturing the mundane particulates orbs illuminated by the camera.
In contrast to the camera-illuminated particulate orbs which are obviously visible to the eye during the time of camera exposure/flash, not once have I been able to capture one of these apparently self-illuminated balls of light by camera on either film or digital media. As a researcher that raises a significant alarm, as it does make me question whether these balls of light actually exist in front of my eyes at all, or whether they are some sort of artefact like phosphenes, or indeed some defect, in either the eye or the optic nerve. So yes I have regularly perceived something strange, but even after all this time my personal jury is still out on what exactly these things are, but the lack of corroborating evidence by recording means does suggest to me that they are probably an artefact in the eye/optic nerve.

Yep you've seen things with your own eyes and eyesight is 100% accurate at all times.  No illusionist can fool you. The next time you see water on a sidewalk on a hot summer day you just go right up and drink it since you saw it it must be real.

All flippancy aside, The old saying is true.  "Your eyes can trick you"  What looks real isn't always.  You believe because you want to, not because you actually researched what you saw to eliminate all other possibilities.  Belief is a powerful thing and it can be good at times but blind belief is almost always a bad thing.  You should follow Sakari's advice.

The sheer odds of a civilization advancing, developing space travel, deciding to search our little corner of the galaxy, arriving at just the right time and actually helping us is so huge, you would have a greater chance of winning several lotteries in a single year. - SensibleLogic

I posted somewhere on here some pretty extensive links....

Involving tumors, and eye issues, all of these can and do make hallucinations of balls of light, and other things.......There many different things that can cause this, known things.

I really do not feel like searching through 6,000 plus posts to find it though.....It is here, as you said, in this site.

lol ?  what are you talking about. ! summerday . hot . waters. ?
sure..
true .your eyes can trick you ..  
true .about the believe. ..

but you really think i didnt reconsider that?
offcours MAYBE it could be my imagination .. offcours MAYBE it could be something that could be explained by science.
but i know for sure . it wasnt my imagination or something scientic can explain.
what i saw .. there were alot of them . in different size . and it lasted over an hour.
you might think now why i didnt record it. ! or taken pictures of it . and i still regret it .. but i was just affraid that it might be gone if i went to go and search for my camera.
well . things like this you would only see once a lifetime. i really should had search for my camera :(
and about sakari . that guy is someone that.. someone like me cant talk with. he tries to hard to think and to find answers. it is great that he can helps alot of people here.by providing scientific  answers.
but he cant help me.or give me any advice. because i just know that there are things that cant be explained. by science.


me and him = x files . mulder and what was her name again? o yeah sakari = scully  lol :P

Seriously... why can't people just have a friendly debate without making fun of anyone.

Besides, Orbs have been a topic for years. Whether they were discussed in the 70's, 80's or 90's. Today, a few TV shows discuss orbs being captured on video and photography. There are paranormal groups world wide that claim orbs are paranormal. Since they have been explained by those with experience and very good credentials, I'm just saying how important it is to keep things objective and keeping things real.

Not everyone is perfect and there is no such thing as an expert in the paranormal field. I shouldn't have to apologize but I do if this was posted several times. Its always good to have a fresh opinion on various subjects.Nothing wrong with that.  :hmm:
