Nuzzled by a Blue Orb?

Photo date: June 22, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below was taken in Grand Central Terminal in New York. We see a blue orb next to a man. We can only wonder if some strange contact was occurring.

I have photographed hundreds of these blue orbs at this location.

There was no fog, mist, rain or precipitation on this night. The air quality listed on airnow.gov was "good," with a rating of 47.

L-Shaped Orb Motion

Photo date: July 28, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below was taken in Grand Central Terminal in New York. At the top we see a moving orb.

More Striped Orbs

Photo date: July 30, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photos below both striped orbs I photographed at an indoor location.  These are the 95th and 96th examples of striped orbs I have photographed (see here for other examples).  Stripes such as these are never seen in natural airborne particles.

The Flag and the Freaky Floaters

Photo date: July 28, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photos below were taken in Grand Central Terminal in New York. We see two orbs near a US flag in the station.

floaters
The lower orb has a strange eye-like feature. Below is a closeup of the green orb.  The line at the bottom of the orb isn't a feature of the orb -- we are merely seeing a line from the background. But the curved stripe at the top of the orb is not part of the background. 

striped orb
As well as photographing 90+ cases of striped orbs (as shown here), I have ten times previously photographed orbs with a "triple stripe" like the one we see above -- in which a thick line is flanked by a thin line with the same shape, above it and below it (see here for examples).

In fact, the orb stripe here is pretty much a  "dead ringer" for the orb stripe shown below, which I posted on July 20, in this post.

See here for three other examples of two striped orbs with similar-looking stripes.

The Speeding Orb Above Them

Photo date: July 28, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below was taken in Grand Central Terminal in New York. At the top of the photo we see a mysterious orb that seems to be moving very fast.

A closeup of the orb shows the "string of pearls" effect I have seen in 40 previous photos. We seem to see different position states of an object moving very fast.

Who Took a Slice Out of This Purple Orb?

Photo date: July 28, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below was taken in Grand Central Terminal in New York. We see a purple orb that looks like some pie that someone has taken a slice out of.

Headless Commuter?

Photo date: July 28, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below was taken in Grand Central Terminal in New York. At the center of the photo, we see someone with a dark shirt.  But where is the person's head?

Another Striped Orb in the Station

Photo date: July 28, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below was taken in Grand Central Terminal in New York. We see yet another example of what I am very frequently photographing these days: mysterious striped orbs. See here for 90+ other photos of these strange striped orbs.

Ghostly Face?

Photo date: July 28, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below was taken in Grand Central Terminal, and shows something really strange. Next to a man's leg, we see what looks rather like a ghostly face looking to the right.

Below is a closeup. Is that an eye and a mouth we see?

Scarlet Surprise: A Red Orb Veil

Photo date: July 28, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below was taken while photographing nothing but ordinary drops of pure, clean water falling against a dark featureless background.  We see some of the strange, wispy objects I call orb veils (see here for 187 other photos of them, many much more dramatic than this one).  This photo shows  a  red-colored orb veil, something I photographed more clearly in this photo. .

Sky Procession?

Photo date: July 25, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below shows some orbs above a building in New York City. In the left photo, it is rather as if some "biggest orb goes first" rule is in effect.

Heart-Shaped Appearance of the Turning Orb

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

The photo below (taken in Grand Central Terminal in New York) shows what seems to be a speeding orb making an extremely sharp right-angle turn (a type of turn sharper than we ever see natural things making).

heart shaped orb

Two days earlier I photographed something similar, shown below.  It also seems to be an orb making an extremely sharp turn.  We seem to see three position states of a speeding object.

Was the Translucent Orb Reading His Mind?

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

The photo below (taken in Grand Central Terminal in New York) shows a transparent orb that seems to be positioned near the head of some man carrying a brief case.

Striped Orb Appears Just After I Asked for a Striped Orb

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

Orbs do not have any general tendency to appear upon command, so it's very rare for me to audibly request an orb. But just occasionally I notice an astonishing case in which an orb appears just after I request one -- sometimes with the characteristics or position matching what I asked for (as in these cases and this case). Just before taking the photo below, I said aloud something like, "How about a nice striped orb?"  In the very next photo I took, a striped orb did appear.

This is my 90th published example of a striped orb (see here for other examples, many of which show stripes like this one, a big thick stripe stretching from one side of the orb to the other).

A Multicolored Sky Orb

Two Striped Sky Orbs With Similar-Looking Stripes

Photo date: July 24, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photos below show orbs I photographed in the sky. Both orbs have similar-looking stripes stretching from one edge of the orb to the opposite edge.  Even the direction of the stripe looks similar, with both stripes having the same angle of inclination. See here for 89 other photos of striped orbs.

There was no fog, mist, rain or precipitation on this night.

4 Orbs With the Same "Blemish"

The composite photo below six orbs I have photographed, each of which has a strange mark on it. Very oddly, four of these "blemishes" look identical (although they are in different locations on the orb). The one on the bottom right corner looks rather like a face.

Astonishing Orb Has a Big "Triangle Hole"

Photo date: July 24, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below was taken in Grand Central Terminal in New York, and shows a mysterious orb that appeared on the green ceiling of the station. We see a remarkable feature I have never seen before in an orb.  There seems to be a big hole in the middle of the orb, but it's not a round hole -- it's a triangle-shaped hole.

Another Orb With a Hook-Like Stripe

Photo date: July 24, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below was taken in Grand Central Terminal in New York, and shows a mysterious orb with a hook-like stripe.  See here for a photo I took a few days earlier that also shows an orb with a hook-like stripe.

Blue Orbs Keep Appearing at This Ceiling

The composite photo below shows 12 blue orbs I photographed between 2015 and 2016. They all appeared in front of the green ceiling of Grand Central Terminal in New York. These are only a tiny fraction of the 500+ blue orbs I have photographed at this location (see here for more examples).

Multicolored Sky Orbs

The talented orb photographer Diana Davatgar has published some photos showing very multicolored orbs.  See here for some examples (Facebook login required).  I sometimes get these multicolored orbs myself. Below are some  previously unpublished example from April 27, 2016 and June 16, 2016.   See here for other examples.

Orbs Above the Churches

The photos below show orbs observed above churches in New York City, on July 23, 2016,  July 22, 2016, and June 30, 2016.  The bright white object was not the moon, which was merely a thin crescent on the night the photo was taken (June 30, 2016).

There was no rain, fog, mist or precipitation on any of these nights.

A Transparent Striped Orb

Photo date: April 28, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The previously unpublished photo (from my photo backlog) shows a transparent orb with a strange stripe, observed near a window at Grand Central Terminal in New York.

This is the 87th photo I have published showing a striped orb floating about in the air. See here for other examples.

More Orb "Tails"

The image below shows quite a few photos I have taken showing orbs with tail-like trailing ends.  These "tails" are probably related to very fast motion of the orbs. See here for 88 photos showing such orb "tails." The photos were are all taken in completely dry weather, ruling out "falling raindrop" explanations. If you look both at this poster and my other poster of "orb tails,"  you can see that the direction of these "tails" are random, which is not what we would expect if they were being caused by falling raindrops.

They Like to Align With Edges

Photo date: July 15, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

 I have made some 127 posts labeled "orb alignment," which show perhaps 175 cases of orbs exactly aligning to things such as structural lines and flag edges. We see below another example of "orb alignment":  a small orb exactly aligned to the edge of a poster in Grand Central Terminal.

Orb With a T-Shaped Stripe

Photo date: July 22, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below shows an orb I photographed on the ceiling of Grand Central Terminal in New York. We see a T-shaped stripe.  Not something that is ever observed in natural particles. The background was solid green.

Weirdness in the Station

Photo date: July 11, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photos below were taken in Grand Central Terminal in New York. We see four mysterious orbs. The one in the top left corner is purple-colored, and the one in the bottom right seems to be moving very fast.

Night of the "Perching" Orbs

Photo date: July 22, 2016. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The composite photo below combines two photos I took showing an arch at Grand Central Terminal in New York. In both we see a mysterious orb aligned with the top of the arch.  One of the orbs is blue, and another is green. The most common orbs I photograph at this location are white and blue, although I also get quite a few cases of green orbs, as well as purple and pink orbs.
