Striped Orb and the Bright Sky Orbs

Photo date: December 19, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below shows some bright orbs on Fifth Avenue in New York. In the top right corner we can see a striped orb.

Below is a closeup of the striped orb.

There was no fog, mist, rain or precipitation on this night. The air quality listed on airnow.gov was "good." The pollen count listed on pollen.com was "low," with a level of 0.1.

This is the eleventh time I have photographed a striped orb with a diagonal stripe looking like this one. The composite photo below shows ten other examples I have photographed (as I discussed in these posts).

recurring orb pattern

Below is my revised table showing recurring patterns I have observed in mysterious orbs.  You can see almost all of the examples of these patterns by opening this post.

Umbilical cord ( AKA "cul-de-sac") 10 Resembles an umbilical cord with a curved loop. Is it a symbol of motherhood?
