Posted 05 April 2006 - 11:58 AM

Yesterday my brother in law visited and during the course of the conversation he asked our advice about something.  He was sat on the sofa and his partner went downstairs to the kitchen (the back door is lower than the front) to sort himself out for work.  Just then Kris saw what he describes as a "black orb" with "fuzzy edges" went past him and behind the sofa he was sat on.  At first he assumed it was his partner messing around so he shouted "Martin pack it in" and got no answer.  He got up and looked allround the sofa and couldn't see anything so he went downstairs and found Martin had already left for work.  

My only logical (ie non-paranormal) explanation is that it was something wrong with his vision.  Other than that does anyone have any suggestions?  I did think maybe some form of ball lightning, but this would probably be quite rare - and again I've heard of ball lightning being various colours but not black...  I'm not a fan of orbs, but this was seen with naked sight not through a lens, and to be honest I've not heard of orbs being black; I've only ever seen the ones on photographs.

This is the only thing I can contribute Bebi, since I've never really heard anything else about black orbs: Recently my 26 year old son suffered a bout of shingles (this is a secondary form of the chicken-pox virus that revisits later in life if you've already had chicken-pox). Shingles can seriously affect the nerve endings anywhere in the body. In my son's case it affected the nerve endings to his eyes. One of his symptoms was brief periods of blindness, but during the periods when his sight returned he would also see black "orb-like" things floating in his field of vision.  This has all passed and he is well now. That doesn't really sound like what you described though, does it? I'm afraid I wasn't much help. LOL.

It could have easily been his eyes. But, how was the lighting in that room? As in, how dim or dark was it--would you happen to know?

Thanks Earthchick thumbsup.gif  he's thinking of having a checkup anyways, although I don't recall him saying anything that could point to shingles.

Taka - the living room has muslin nets and it wasn't too overcast that day, one of the first things I asked was were there any beams of sunlight anywhere, the answer was no.  Otherwise the vision was fine as I've been round there quite a lot, it only really gets too dark to see when there's a storm overhead.  Does that help?

If only I knew what 'muslin nets' were. x_x I'll go google it and educate myself, but I'll continue to go with the eye problem(s). And if the doctors don't find anything during his checkup, then I'm at a loss. But, because I've never been there, or seen a picture, so I really can't say anything for a fact. n_n;

Edddit: I just had an idea. What about a shadow? Perhaps maybe from a vulture or other large bird? Not exactly orb-like, but still.

Muslin nets are a little less see-through than ordinary net curtains, but still allow light through without causing dazzle through the pin-pricks you get in the fabric of normal nets.

I asked if it could have been a shadow and he said definitely not, it was a well defined "orb" that travelled past him and then turned to go behind the sofa.  It looked to be about a foot (12 inches/30 cms) off the ground.

I'm also still going with the vision problem scenario personally.

Ah, okay. Yeah, I Googled 'muslin nets' and got pretty much that.

Well, since he's said it's not a shadow, I'm going right there with you; most likely his eyes. (I've got eye problems, where I'm half blind in my right eye, and I see a lot of things like that. I don't wear my glasses. x])

I get migraines and sometimes it will just be affecting my eyes. When this happens I see black spots and am light sensitive. Could this be what he's talking about? I found out from my Dr. that most people don't even know they are having a migraine when they have this type.
On the other hand, I too have never heard of a black orb or black ball lighting. . .
Hope he feels better. . .

I found this by searching for 'black orbs' because we have them, too. It's a recent thing, only the last couple of weeks. I'd never heard of black orbs, either and I was looking for more information. In my case, it's not just me who sees them. My husband has seen them and so has my son. So it couldn't be all of our eyes going bad.

I have no idea what it is. To me orbs=spirits, and they are usually white. I equate white with peaceful, so to me black is um, not so good. And I don't mean people, I only mean spirits. But we haven't felt any menacing presence, although we do have something I call 'peepers'. It's a feeling that someone is watching you, from the stairway or by the door, and when you look that way, all you catch is a dark shadow ducking beneath the railing or going around the corner. Again, I'm not the only one who sees that, either. In fact, it's been going on for years and neither me or my husband discussed it until we watched a show one night about hauntings and he said, "Ya know, sometimes I see something at the top of the stairs, looking over the railing." I about flipped, because it was exactly what I see.

The orbs are about the size of a baseball, and move fast. I have a feeling that a lot more people are going to start talking about black orbs very soon.

Actually, I've heard about black orbs for a couple of years now. Most are attribited to the eye problems. But in the realm of quantum physics they are pretty much sumed up as pin holes in the the dimensional fabric. A kind of Peephole into our world from another dimension.

If this was a 'true' orb and not an eye prob which if in doubt health should always be checked. Then black orbs very much do exist as they do in lots of colours and it's possible to see them with the naked eye. Lets put it this way, you are in no doubt whatsoever when you have seen an orb fly past you or at you from across a room. It is quite different from eye floaters or sparks caused by the eyes or light in the eyes. Once experinced you know the difference. For one, you have full concept and perception of its depth and dimension over distance as it travels, just like a butterfly.

The colour of an orb is a reflection of its engery source. Black tends to sugest negitive or mischievous properties..
