Vertical Bias of the Orb Swarm

Photo date: October 26, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below shows a swarm of orbs I photographed on a dry night in New York City. The building occupies about 50% of the photo, but 95% of the orbs appear above the building. This shows we are not seeing any particles very close to the camera, which would be randomly scattered around the photo area. I have seen this type of "orb vertical bias" in many photos, as shown here.

There was no fog, mist, rain or precipitation on this night. The air quality listed on was "good," with a level of 27 (anything below 50 is good). The pollen level listed on was low, with a level of 1.1.
