Orb Pictures November 2006

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 with light reflecting off of it; others are balls of energy that many ghost hunters are not sure just what they represent. 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 exactly the source of an orb for sure...some are downright questionable, thus we cannot post all orb pictures we receive. The following pictures have orbs in them, and we are not sure what caused them. We could claim them to be dust, but do we really know that? We just posted these orb pics together (received from different people), so you could see how orbs appear in photographs of all types...


1: Notice how the dog sees the orb? He knows...

"Recently my father was killed in a car accident on August 20th of this year. I would love to know that my father is still here with me."-Lindsey
2 & 3: "I made a venture to a local cemetery in Wisconsin named La belle (in Oconomowoc, WI) that is supposedly "haunted." Legend has it that the ghost of "Minnie" a woman who died in 1886 continues to haunt the cemetery near the statue marking the spot where she is buried. One photograph in particular depicts the apparition of a face appearing on the corner of the headstone near the grave. Also, there is an orbish looking thing appearing directly above it."- Chris Schulte
4-6: "This picture was taken of me in Gatlinburg, TN at the Ripley’s Believe It or Not Aquarium. I can see...5 orbs. The first thing that came to mind was moisture on the lens of the camera, but there are no more orbs or moisture in any of the other 5 pictures we took around this very same spot. The fifth and final one that I see is the biggest and looks like it has faces in it from the original view. It is located in the very top Left hand corner on the black rock surface. Again on that one I thought maybe a glare or moisture, but glares do not have orb properties and this one does, as well as FACES!!! I have a thing for animals...so I was thinking maybe they are orbs of some of the animals that may have passed at the aquarium."- Heather
7 & 8: "Do you think this could be a pink orb above the head board? I've never seen colored ones, yet. Although, when my twin boys were small, they have said that they've seen multicolored ones in their bedroom at our old house."-Melissa from Peck
9: "Had a feeling someone was in the room with me when I took this picture in my living room. I took another right after, and there wasn't anything in that one." - Carrie Matthews , NC
10: "This is a picture that I took one night around my small goldfish pond. In it you can see a big orb, and where the orb is I have smelled a strong odor of cigar smoke from time to time. I have also captured energy/spirit streaks in this area."- Dana Herring
11 & 12: Do animals have spirits? Why, sure! This bird might of had a companion with it."I was in my living room, sitting at the computer, and all of a sudden I heard something hit the window and drop to the ground. I found a little bird hiding behind a glass bottle... He flew around the room a couple of times and then landed back at the window. I reached over and gently picked him up. I brought him back to the computer and sat down in the chair...and grabbed the camera. When I loaded it onto the computer, I saw the orb. It seems to have a bird figure in the orb - does that mean that animals can be in orbs, too?"- Sunshine
13 & 14: Orb with face and a moving orb...

"You have posted a few different face orb photos in the past and I thought I would throw a few others your way."- Judy Powells
15: "A couple of weeks ago I thought I saw something white and small running into my kitchen, out of the corner of my eye. It would have been her exact size. It gave me huge chills. Today I was standing in my kitchen thinking of my lost cat and looking at the spare bathroom door, where when she was alive, I could see her sitting on the rug. Her litter box was in that bathroom. I stooped down and spoke softly to her - I miss her so much. .I decided to take a pic and this is what showed up. I guess it's anyone's guess if this is dust or her little spirit."- Joelle

17: "What are these? Are they ghosts? There are several orbs in this pic, but the big one is right in front of my nephew."- Sheree
