Another "Inverted V" Orb

Photo date: November 18, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below shows a mysterious orb I photographed in midtown Manhattan.

This is the third time I have photographed an orb with this inverted V stripe. Below are two other examples, reported here.

Below is my revised table listing recurring patterns I have photographed in mysterious orbs.

Description Occurrences Comments URL
Inverted Y 7 Rather like the lower case lambda character, part of the Greek alphabet
Umbilical cord ( AKA "cul-de-sac") 10 Resembles an umbilical cord with a curved loop. Is it a symbol of motherhood?
Curved stripe at top or bottom 6 May be on top or bottom of orb
Diagonal stripe 7 Goes from one side of orb to another, diagonally. Looks like a slash (not a backslash)
Short diagonal stripe 5 Goes from top right corner toward center
Hose and circle 6 Looks like a ball that has fallen out of a tube
Slanted C 6 Looks like a C shape, tilted over quite a bit to the right
Inverted V 3 Looks rather like the caret character (an inverted V) This post
Hook-like stripe 4 Has a kind of candy-cane shape
Curvy 9 which fell down 2 Looks like a curvy nine which “fell down”
4 stripes 2 Straight lines intersecting in a particular shape
Broken squiggly T 3 One wiggly horizontal stripe at the top above a vertical stripe at the bottom
