A few facts about “orbs” you may not know:

1) The majority of orbs (around 85%-90%) can be debunked, attributed to dust motes, various light anomalies and photographic aberrations, and natural phenomena (such as insects).

2) Using a 35mm camera is a better, more reliable source for capturing orbs than digital cameras (including iPhones).

3) Most orbs are spherical because it’s the easiest energy form to manifest and maintain. However, “true orbs” are not entirely spherical; they have slightly blunted ends to marginally reduce drag coefficient.

4) Not all orbs are light or lightened, some are black, which are slightly less common and usually overlooked.

5) A “true orb” is usually self-illuminating, sometimes pulsating or possessing contrails as it travels. Sometimes they are different colours (ranging from red to purple), depending on their light frequency.

6) Spirit orbs appear to have the same structure as a living cell, comprising outer shells and inner nuclei. In fact, when a spirit orb forms, there are three primary stages of formation: embryonic, mature and adult.

7) Other names for orbs include globe or globule, ball of light and light anomaly.

8) Light anomalies can appear both at night and during the day, but only a very small percentage can be attributed to being paranormal in nature.

9) “Orbophilia” is an intense fascination with orbs.
