Striped Sky Orbs Look Like Twins

The photos below show two mysterious orbs I photographed on April 10, 2017 and April 28, 2017 (two nights where there was no fog, mist, rain or precipitation).

The orb has the "corner chord" pattern I have 10 times previously photographed (as you can see here and here). 

Below is my revised table of 20 repeating patterns in mysterious orbs I have photographed (most of the examples referred to below can be conveniently seen in this post).

The Freakiest "Twins"

Photo date: April 27, 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 two orbs that have exactly the same very distinctive shape inside them. The shapes almost look like little animal heads.

You can see this type of weirdness again and again and again in my photos of water drops. I will repeatedly get some extremely distinctive inexplicable shape (such as a particular type of stripe) that will appear multiple times in the same photo. You can see many jaw-dropping examples here.

These photos raise the question: do green orbs like to hang around trees?

The unusual sky orb shown below (photographed on the same night) seemed to have a green center, along with an odd "diamond ring" kind of thing on its right top.

Orbs and Psychic Healing?

Yesterday I was reading an academic book on paranormal phenomena (Varieties of Anomalous Experience) which discussed anomalous healing, among many other topics. The book states on page 363 that "during the time the anomalous healing takes place" it is not unusual to see "balls of great white light."

I did a Google search looking for "orbs+psychic healing" and came across the photo here, where we see a photo of a moving orb appearing while a psychic healer was at work. I don't know anything about the individual (who hasn't updated the blog in a few years). But I do know that the photo shows the "string of pearls" effect I have photographed 60+ times (as you can see here), in which we seem to see multiple position states of a fast moving orb.
