one of the most controversial questions among paranormal investigators and skeptics alike.
Is an orb some form of a ghost/spirit or nothing more than a natural anomaly caught on a photo or video? This argument will go on for decades.
that orbs are both.
orbs are caught on film more often than a ghost/spirit orb. Natural orbs are
made up of particles that are floating in the air and when a photo is taken the flash causes this particle to glow and is
caught on film as an orb. Some of the most common particles that cause natural
orbs are dust, pollen and water droplets.
orb is by far the most common paranormal evidence caught by investigators. Most
investigators feel that a ghost/spirit orb is the energy left behind once someone has died.
It is thought
that these ghost/spirit orbs are used for traveling and that in this form the spirit/ghost uses the least amount of energy. Some investigators feel that an orb is a ghost/spirit that is about to form in to
a full apparition.
So how are
we to know if the orbs we capture on film are made from natural elements or if they may be a ghost/spirit orb?
If you just walked through an area that no one has been through in quite some time there is a good chance that
you are going to stir up dust and other particles. Wait a while and give the
particles you stirred up a chance to settle before taking photos. If you are
investigating an outside area don’t take photos in any type of precipitation or walk through a bush or other type of
foliage and take a photo. Any of the above mentioned circumstances can and most
likely will cause you to have natural orbs in your photos.
Go disturb an area deliberately to get the dust and other particles in
the air and take a series of photos.
Go outside on
a dry night and shake some leaves, bushes, ect and take a series of photos.
till there is precipitation (light rain, fog, snow) in the air and take another series of photos. Now you have a series of “base line photos” on what natural orbs look like when captured by
you are out investigating and catch an orb you can look at your “base line photos”
and compare them to dismiss any natural orbs.
that you are paying attention to your surroundings and know your equipment a little better, use some science.
If you have an E.M.F. reader and you are getting E.M.F. spikes, snap a photo.
Hearing bumps, moans, groans or footsteps? Snap a photo. If there is evidence of some type of paranormal happenings going on at the time you snap the photo your
chances of catching a spirit/ghost orb are greatly increased.
