Weird and Wonderful Orbs of Light – Paranormal or scientific explanation?
I’m going to show you something that I’ve never shown anyone before. Many years ago when I was living in Sheffield I decided to play with the flash on my camera one dark night in my back garden. It was pitch black and the house lights from the other side of the valley glowed yellow. After I loaded the pictures onto the computer and looked at them I noticed round spheres in the foreground small and large, white and what looked like a multi-coloured nucleus in the middle of them. I could not explain their presence – they certainly were not visible to the naked eye. So I rushed out and took a load more shots with the flash off and on and found more globular like balls in the photographs. I never told anyone what I had photographed until now because I thought I would be laughed at. The reason I’m publishing them is because I have seen more photos taken by other people of the same phenomina and have read several accounts of what they might be. Scientific thinking seems to think that they are pollution that attracts dust particles – others think they are paranormal (there was an old Victorian cemetary at the bottom of the valley). I have no idea but am relieved that I’m not the only one to have photographed them (ie I’m not mad or seeing things). Take a look at the photographs below and see what you think? Have any of you had a similar experience? Have a go yourself and see if you can photograph them. It’s weird and wonderful and makes me happy that there is no concrete explanation for them and its a mystery.
I darkened some of the picture above where one of the balls was the brightest and most colourful to see if I could identify what it was
