But, I never saw with my eyes the orbs until after the pictures were taken. Coincidence or real, honest-to-goodness paranormal orbs? (I can't upload the pictures right now because this computer doesn't support my memory stick.) Thanks, Annie Hi Annie.In my experience, a lot of orb photos can be caused by man-made sources, such as light reflecting off the camera, dust on the lens, etc.Here are a few examples of orb photographs: Not all "orbs" that appear in photographs are paranormal.In my experience, many of the orbs that appear in photographs can be explained by the flash reflecting off dust, particles, insects, or moisture droplets in the air in front of the camera.
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.Meanwhile, other subscribers want to know why certain orbs have different colors (red, blue), and if there is a meaning to these colors. An orb is a solid or transparent "ball" of energy or light.Some parapsychologists believe that orbs are spirits, or lingering energy from deceased entities. Orbs can appear in many different shapes and colors, with white orbs being the most common.However, I would be very cautious when classifying orbs in photographs as paranormal – it's simply too easy for the "orbs" in a photograph to be caused by dust or moisture, reflecting off the camera lens (or the flash).Theory #1 – Color difference in orbs is caused by "chromatic distortion" which is a fancy way of saying that our eyes perceive different wavelengths and shapes as varying colors.
