They're weird, it's like someone broke open a glow stick and it just moves like a wiffle ball throw.Had them in pics but I dont play them up, I also take care of the local cemetery, see lots stuff but I dont play it up. Is there a specific way to tell the difference between orbs and dust?By this point the "orbs" had gotten smaller so I "asked" to make them bigger.Almost immediatley I got a large one, just like the first along with another picture of a shower of orbs.Do you have a theory on why certain orbs are colored? Update: I've found an excellent page (by Gettysburg Ghosts) that lists the possible meanings of colored orbs.Orbs, have seen them behind the house, in the wagon trail, the coaches would come in to the house.
The color difference may simply be a reflection of the spirit's energy at the time of his death—or the color may be caused by the shape/frequency of of the orb (wavelength theory #1).
I also had a photo in which there appeared to be a hole straight through my head, you could see the wall on the other side. I have seen mainly blueish purple orbs but I was lying in bed last night and my dining room totally lit up in red and I freaked out and turned the tv and light on.
I've never had that and don't know if it was an orb but it was extremely red and bright enough to scare me.
Other shadow chasers claim that red is a color associated with an energy that seems to be on guard duty (often watching over a last outpost, or a loved one who has died).
Dee asked whether a red orb should be considered negative or harmful.
