The Orb Inside the Orb

Photo date: October 16, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below shows a mysterious orb I photographed near the top of Grand Central Terminal in New York.  We can see a smaller orb inside the orb, and the right edges of the orbs align with each other exactly.  The image almost suggests the idea of a pregnant orb about to give birth to a child orb.

Like a Sky Cracker

Six Had the Same Ring in the Same Place

Photo date: October 12, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

I took the photo below while photographing nothing but ordinary drops of pure, clean water falling against a dark background. We see 6 orbs with the same little dark ring inside them. In each of these orbs, the ring is located on the same spot on the orb (near the right edge, halfway between the top and the bottom).  See here for six similar photos.

Orb Gives a New Type of "Table Tipping"

Photo date: October 13, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

In the nineteenth century in the United States, a practice called table-tipping became extremely popular.  A group of people would sit at a table, and put their hands on the table. They would ask for a sign from the spirit world. Very often the table under their hands would tilt, and many witnesses said the table would rise above the floor. Some people still perform table tipping. You can see many interesting examples of table tipping on www.youtube.com, by searching for "table tipping."

The photo below shows a mysterious orb I photographed indoors. We see stripes that look just like a tilted table.

A Number 7 in a Mysterious Orb

The photo below shows a mysterious orb I photographed indoors on October 11, 2017.

number in orb
Note the number 7.  If you do a Google image search for "number 7" you will see several examples of fancy number 7's that look like this, with 3 lines segments rather than 2.

This is the third time I have got a number 7 in a mysterious orb I photographed. Below is a photo I took on September 6, 2017.

Below is a photo I took on July 9, 2016, as posted here:

The repeated "7" pattern is one of of 24 recurring patterns I have noticed in mysterious orbs I have photographed. The grid below summarizes each of these patterns, and how many times each have been photographed. Click here to see multiple examples of each of these patterns.

The Same Little Ring in 4 Orbs

Photo date: October 12, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

I took the photo below while photographing nothing but ordinary drops of pure, clean water falling against a dark background. We see 4 orbs with the same little dark ring inside them.  It is the same strange thing seen in this series of photos.

The same "little rings inside the orbs" can be seen in the photo below from the same day:

The Mysterious Orb's Circular Motion?

Photo date: October 11, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below shows a mysterious thing I photographed indoors. It seems to be a bright orb making a circular motion, moving in a tight circle.  The next photo taken a few seconds later showed no such thing.

Orbs with Inverted U Stripes

Below are two mysterious orbs I photographed on January 19, 2017 and October 8, 2017. They both have an inverted "U" stripe. It's not a pattern I see very often, unlike the frequently repeating patterns shown here.

Repeating Orb Patterns: Some Mathematical Considerations

On my other blog (where I normally do not discuss orbs), I just posted a long post discussing the repeating stripe patterns I have photographed in mysterious orbs.  I have a rather interesting discussion of some mathematical considerations that lead one to believe that there is essentially zero probability of a person getting so many pattern repetitions if nothing but chance was involved.

The photo below shows an orange orb I photographed near a building on Park Avenue in New York. The orb seems to have little tinges of green.  It was not the moon, and did not appear in the next photo I took from this angle.

Day of the Yellow Orbs

Photo date: October 3, 2017.  Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photos below show two mysterious yellow orbs I photographed indoors.  Kind of like briefly having little suns inside the house -- but without the heat.  See here for 120+ other yellow orbs I have photographed.

Shadow on the Orb?

Photo date: October 2, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below shows a mysterious orb I photographed with a strange look, as if a shadow had fallen on it.  It looks rather like a moon, although it was way too dark to be such a thing (and no such orb appeared in the next photo I took from this angle).

Bird in the Mysterious Orb?

Photo date: September 30, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below shows a mysterious orb I photographed indoors.  If you look closely at the bottom right part of the orb, underneath the curving stripe, you can see what looks quite a bit like a bird figure. We can seem to see both the beak and the eye of the "bird."  See here for some other photos that seemed to shows animal figures inside mysterious orbs.

Was the Orb Changing Color As It Moved?

Photo date: September 30, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below shows a speeding orb I photographed at Grand Central Terminal in New York.  Very oddly, the orb seemed to be changing color from white to blue as it moved.


Two days earlier I photographed the blue orb below at Grand Central, near a ledge like surface where I often photograph orbs that seem to be "perching" atop the ledge.

They Appeared Just After I Said "Mysterious"

Photo date: September 28, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

Yesterday I was watching a Travel Channel TV show about strange things happening in a national park. The person on the TV said the word "mysterious," and for some reason I repeated the word. A few seconds later I photographed the mysterious striped orbs below, which appeared in the same photo.

Both Night Orbs Shared the Same Stripe

Photo date: September 25, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below shows two mysterious orbs I photographed in the sky. Very oddly, both orbs seem to be sharing a single stripe.   This is the 388th time I have photographed in dry air an orb with a stripe.  See here for other examples.

As you can see in this series of photos, I have many times photographed mysterious orbs exactly aligned with a row of lights at Grand Central Terminal.  The grid below shows some of these photos.

Half Orbs

Almost all of the mysterious orbs I get are fully circular, but occasionally one of my Sony cameras picks up what looks like half orbs.  Below are some examples, from September 26, 2017, August 23, 2017, and July 31, 2017. See here and here for lots of other examples of such half-orbs.

All 8 Had the Same Little Ring Inside Them

Photo date: September 25, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

I took the photo below while photographing nothing but pure, clean drops of water falling against a dark background. We see 8 white circular objects that each have inside them a small ring-like structure.  See here for other photos showing the same strange thing.
