Orbs in Pictures

Posted by Scarlet Pumpernickel | 8:22 PM | , , , | 14 comments »

The other night we had a full moon and I'd just bought a new camera. I thought I'd take my new camera out and try to take a picture of the full moon. Well, I'd waited too late because the moon was almost directly over head and our house is surrounded by very tall trees.
Now the interesting thing about the pictues, see the orbs? This is a new camera, so there was no moisture, scratches or lint to have made the orbs.
This is a church in Italy. Not sure if you can see them here, but there were orbs in the some of the pictures.
Have you ever taken pictures, then found orbs in them? What do you think they are?
Okay, here is another one. Broad daylight, no flash and other consecutive photos did not have orbs.

    If I say they are light flares would that spoil the fun? Lights can it the lens and flare.

    MM, you are a spoil sport.

    Explain the fairy lights in the mountains in Cherokee, NC? No pictures, but they were floating around and too big to be fire flies!

    I actually believe they are more than light flares, moisture or lint... About 2 years ago I went on a ghost tour of an old hotel and they told us once we put our pictures on our computers that we needed to zoom in on any orbs. Well I did and I have two pictures with orbs that look like there is someones face it them. Call it reality, call it imagination, call it whatever but I believe life seems a little more mysterious by believing.

    I believe in aliens, and I'm not weird or anything, but just think it's pretty lame that only earth would have intelligent life form, especially since we're not all that intelligent! lol
    But these orbs look like a flair from the camera lens, I'm thinking.

    Haven't been able to find the other pictures I have because I'm working on a new computer. Will have to check the old one and post more pictures.

    Holly, I'm with you. I really wasn't expecting to find orbs in my backyard!

    Patrice, this wasn't the best picture of the orbs, and it was past midnight, so it was dark outside.

    I have experienced a couple paranormal occurence that left no doubt that something was a miss. On one occasion my keys went missing in one building and reappeared three months later in another when no one had been there all day.

    Anyone else have any paranormal experiences to share?

    I just suggested a non-paranormal solution. GRIN!

  8. Mary Marvella // April 15, 2012 at 2:11 AM  

    I am willing to believe.

    MM, so long as you keep an open mind! You do write paranormal romance after all. Haunting Refrain is definitely paranormal and what about the one with the ghost cat?

    Not sure about your orbs, Scarlet, but do think there's something to them--some of them anyway.

    Well I once saw a spaceship with my whole family! It was in the local paper, but no one ever figured it out!
    It WAS a space ship. Honest! My mother wanted them to take her, but they didn't.

    Mary R. your assignment for your next blog if you choose to take it is a detailed account of that observation! A friend and I once saw a string of them flying in formation. Looked like they came through a door in the sky on the left, crossed just above the treeline and disappeared into another door on the right side. The lights were red, there were about 12 or 15 in single formation and they blinked out like they'd passed through a doorway. No one believed us either.

    Interesting and a bit eerie. Wow--thanks for sharing.

    I spent the day - along with others - at a friends house and as evening closed in we all went out to take photgraphs of the garden lights lining the paths.
    We all ended up with pics covered in orbs.
    No street lights close by, no rain, a dry day and the sun had set but it wasn't yet 'dark'.
