site was set up to show and discuss the Topic of ORBS and
other anomalous things captured on film.
of the photos where shot by Bret Walters of Cedar Rapids,
Iowa throughout the United States and his Orb hunting friend
Dave Kelsey has also taken some of the photos. Other photos
come from Randy & Hope Mead and James Gilliland both from
other photos come from other orb photographers.
photos copyrighted by the photographer who took them and all
have many names including globes, globules, balls of light,
and hovering round balls. They appear in all ranges of brightness
from bright-&-glowing to faded-&-barely-visible and
come in all colors. They are usually quite fast and follow
an erratic pattern of flight. So what are these balls or other
shapes of transparent light we find in photos being taken?
No one has the true answer to this question yet.
of the leading theories concerning what orbs are is that orbs
are energy beings. Simply they are the light or soul bodies
of inter-dimensional beings traveling around us at all times
but just slightly out of our time perspective. Or they are
multidimensional beings, some Orbs are currently being used
by Interplanetary life forms to view life on Earth and on
other planets. Similar to looking through a window. And a
new theory is that they could be thoughts. Some say the reason
for the increase in orb sightings is because of the lifting
of the veils or the coming of the higher dimensions.
are not usually visible to the naked eye but can be seen through
infrared monitors and can be recorded on photographic film.
When they show up, they appear to be luminosity's that are
round or diffuse, and even rectangular in shape. Many other
shapes have also been reported i.e... Diamonds, pyramids,
and hearts. Detection and study of orbs has developed with
the advent of high technology. Orbs appear to be a form of
energy of unknown origin. They are not stray light sources,
insects or dust particles. They are not sufficiently strong
enough to set off any type of detection meters, nor do they
have sufficient mass to set off infrared motion detectors.
They seem to defy gravity and change directions, sometimes
quickly. They twinkle. They react to the presence of people:
they increase in number when people are present and in a positive
mode. Orbs are not the same as GHOST LIGHTS, which are similar
in shape and behavior, but which are much brighter and are
visible to the naked eye.
Say Orbs are dust, water or a bad camera
cameras can't have film-processing errors. I am aware that
some people feel that the orbs on a digital camera are an
error in the digital processing of the image. When that error
does occur in digital photos, the objects tend to be square
in nature, not round and they cannot be semitransparent, the
pixel behind would have to be corrupted also. I will not even
address the precipitation theory, no legitimate researchers
takes photos in any form of precipitation. What about dust
and dirt being stirred up? Can that be the cause of the orbs?
If that were the case, I would think that there would not
be normal photos in a sequence of photos from the same camera
and location. All of the shots in a sequence should have the
dust or dirt in it. We find that most orb photos do not appear
in consecutive photos. All photographers present should get
orbs if it is dust being stirred up as well. Also not everyone
can take orb photos. I have given my camera to others with
no orbs showing.
are just a few things for the skeptics to think of when they
are condemning an orb photo as a fake or fraud and some things
for to consider when checking their photos for positives.
is true that raindrops and moisture droplets may cause patterns
similar, but not exactly like those associated with the orbs.
How valid is the raindrop theory if the weather conditions
was warm and dry when the photo was snapped?
how do you tell a real "orb" photo from a false
is no official way to determine authenticity of an orb within
a photo but here are a few key elements to keep in mine.
1. A bright orb is more likely to be real than a faded one.
Orbs that are bright and show a vibrating effect within the
photo are likely to be real.
A slight trail is also something to look for in determining
this information is by no means foolproof. As there exist
no experts on orb photography.
to capture ORB photos
way to capture orbs is with still cameras. This can be just
about any picture taking camera but we find the best ones
to use are the 35mm cameras with a bright flash, or a digital
camera. With a digital if nothing shows up, then its just
a simple delete process and no waste of film.
anomalous things captured on film
far since I started capturing orb photos I have taken photos
of many other different things. Strange mists, Angels, Nymphs,
Rainbow ovals and many other strange things.
photos by Bret (or when Dave is with me and he uses one of
mine) where taken with a Sony Cyber Shot DSC-S30 and DSC-S75
are original pictures unless noted.
Some photos where enhanced in Photoshop adjusting contrast
or brightness levels only. Nothing else has been done to them.
