The 4th Sky Orb I've Photographed With This Type of Diagonal Stripe

Photo date: November 5, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

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.

This is the fourth time I have photographed 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
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 6 Goes from one side of orb to another, diagonally. Looks like a slash (not a backslash)
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
