The Seventh Occurrence of This Distinctive Pattern in a Mysterious Orb

Photo date: December 13, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below shows a mysterious striped orb I photographed.

This is the seventh time I have photographed a mysterious orb with this particular pattern, which I call the "hose and circle" pattern. Below are other examples I photographed on various days this year. In each case we see what looks like a ball or circle that is underneath a kind of hose shape, so it looks like a ball that has fallen out of the hose.

In this post is actually an 8th occurrence of this 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.

Description Occurrences Comments URL
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 7 Goes from one side of orb to another, diagonally. Looks like a slash (not a backslash)
Short diagonal stripe 5 Goes from top right corner toward center
