The photo below shows a striped orb I photographed to the right of St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York. There was no fog, mist, rain or precipitation on this night.
described here, here and here).
Below is my revised table listing recurring motifs I have photographed in mysterious orbs. Besides the 5 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||5||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|

|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|
