The Seventh Photo I've Taken of a Mysterious Orb With an Inverted-Y Symbol

Photo date: November 2, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below shows a mysterious orb I photographed in Grand Central Terminal in New York.

This is the 7th time I have photographed an upside-down Y in a mysterious orb. The composite photo below shows six other orbs I have photographed with the same inverted Y symbol (see here and here for the original posts). The photos were taken over the course of quite a few weeks, with no such symbol appearing in 99% of the photos I took during these weeks.

Below is my revised table listing different types of recurring orb motifs I have photographed.

Description Occurrences Comments URL
Inverted Y 7 Rather like the lower case lambda character, part of the Greek alphabet This post
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 3 Goes only one third of orb, from top right corner toward center
Hose and circle 6 Looks like a ball that has fallen out of a tube
Slanted C 4 Looks like a C shape, tilted over quite a bit to the right
Caret stripe 2 Looks rather like the caret character
Hook-like stripe 2 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
