Snow: False Orb Pictures                     Back to Ghost Pictures

This page was created to demonstrate that snow (or rain) falling in front of the camera lens can reflect the
camera's flash and appear as orbs.  These photos show how snowflakes lose their form when the flash hits
them, as they strike a bright reflection of light.

We suggest that when trying to take paranormal photographs, it is best to do so when it is not raining or
snowing outdoors.  Also be aware of common causes of mists, such as snow melting in warmer temperatures
(fog), waterfalls, fountains, creeks, etc., which can also produce false orb pictures.

Above: Judy Powells sent us this picture example of snow falling in front of
the camera.  Notice how many orbs the snowflakes create.

Below: Sheila sent us this picture taken at night of snow falling.  Notice how
the snow creates bright orbs as the camera's flash reflects off of them.

Below: The L.I.P.S. team (Lake Isabella Paranormal Society) headed out on
a snowy night to take pictures of the snowflakes and to show how even snow
can appear to look like orbs.  Of course snow can come in different shapes
and sizes, but it can also give off the effects to appear just like orbs.  My
digital camera was set on auto mode with flash. These are some of the
interesting photos we got that night.
