Photo date: January 6, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.
The photo below shows a sky orb I photographed on a dry night with no fog, mist, rain or precipitation. Like 12 other orbs I have photographed, there is a diagonal stripe in the orb, like a slash.
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.
