The photo below shows a mysterious orb I photographed at Grand Central Terminal in New York. We see not just a stripe on the orb, but a particular type of stripe known as a shadow stripe, in which there are thin lines above and below the stripe, matching the shape of the stripe. I have 28 times previously photographed mysterious orbs with these shadow stripes (as shown here).
