Photo date: September 27, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.
I took the photos below while photographing nothing but ordinary drops of pure, clean water falling against a dark background. The left photo shows a shocking anomaly that is quite inexplicable: seven orbs that each have a similar-looking stripe. See here for20 similar photos, one of which shows 20 striped orbs in a single photo. On the right we see some of the equally mysterious objects I call orb rings and orb crescents (which I have photographed more than 100 times, as shown here).
