The photo below shows a striped orb I photographed above a supermarket in New York City. There was no fog, mist, rain or precipitation on this night.
an orb with a stripe that looks like this one. Below is a composite photo showing the orb above and three other similar orbs I photographed (as described here and here).
Below is my revised table listing recurring motifs I have photographed in mysterious orbs. Besides the 4 orbs shown above (with a diagonal stripe not stretching the full length of the orb), I have also photographed 6 other mysterious orbs with a diagonal stripe stretching the full length of the orb (see below for the link).
|Inverted Y||7||Rather like the lower case lambda character, part of the Greek alphabet||http://orbpro.blogspot.com/2016/11/the-seventh-photo-ive-taken-of.html|
|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||http://orbpro.blogspot.com/2016/10/mysterious-motif-another-orb-with.html|
|Diagonal stripe||6||Goes from one side of orb to another, diagonally. Looks like a slash (not a backslash)||http://orbpro.blogspot.com/2016/10/two-sky-orbs-with-identical-looking.html|
|Short diagonal stripe||4||Goes from top right corner toward center||This post|
|Hose and circle||6||Looks like a ball that has fallen out of a tube||http://orbpro.blogspot.com/2016/11/two-more-cases-of-this-recurring-orb.html|
|Slanted C||6||Looks like a C shape, tilted over quite a bit to the right||http://orbpro.blogspot.com/2016/11/two-more-mysterious-orbs-with-curved_10.html|
|Caret stripe||2||Looks rather like the caret character||http://orbpro.blogspot.com/2016/09/two-mysterious-orbs-with-bent-stripes.html|
|Hook-like stripe||2||Has a kind of candy-cane shape||http://orbpro.blogspot.com/2016/07/another-orb-with-hook-like-stripe.html|
|Curvy 9 which fell down||2||Looks like a curvy nine which “fell down”||http://orbpro.blogspot.com/2016/07/two-striped-orbs-with-same-fingerprint.html|
|4 stripes||2||Straight lines intersecting in a particular shape||http://orbpro.blogspot.com/2016/07/the-same-strange-mark-on-two-striped.html|
