Photo date: February 22, 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 one of the strange objects I call orb veils. The object appeared with an apparent size of about 6 inches, taking up 60% of the original photo height. We see some of the typical characteristics of orb veils: a polygon shape with lots of spiky points, a kind of membrane-like edge, and lots of little internal circles. On the right is a column of what I call orb crescents. See here for a video showing 100+ photos of these strange orb veils.
