A Strange Sextet of Striped Orbs

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 six mysterious orbs that each have an inexplicable thick stripe.

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.

I took the photo below while photographing nothing but ordinary drops of pure, clean water falling against a dark background. We see in the center an orb that very strangely has the letter "E" inside it. We can also see two fainter letter "E" shapes above the middle "E."

The photo below shows a mysterious orb photographed in the sky on a dry night. It is the 23rd mysterious orb I have photographed with a diagonal slash stretching from one end of the orb to the other.  I see this pattern recurring more often than any other of the recurring orb patterns I observe.

On the same night I photographed another green orb near a tree.

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.

I have 9 times previously photographed such a pattern, as shown here.

Cylinder in the Weird Orb?

Photo date: April 17, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below shows a most unusual orb I photographed at Grand Central Terminal in New York. The left part of the orb looks like a short cylinder viewed from above.  Very, very strange. I have photographed this spot very many times before, and my photos have never shown such a shape, inside or outside of an orb.

Did We Both See a Rolling Coin Apport?

In her new book Good Grief, the medium Theresa Caputo (star of the television show Long Island Medium) briefly mentions orbs. On page 81 she says: "Spirit isn't shy about showing off their energy in photos as a blue haze, orb, streak or white, smoky cloud that I can't even sense until I look at the image. And sometimes if you zoom in on the orb, you can see a face!"  See here for 567 photos in which we seem to see face-like details in orbs.

Theresa suggests finding unexplained coins may be signs from the Great Beyond. On page 83 of the book, Theresa recalls an astonishing occurrence: "Then at a live show in Westbury, Long Island, a dime just appeared on the stage and rolled in front of me when I was giving my opening speech!"  This reminded me of something inexplicable that once happened to me.

One summer in 2014 I started to notice coins on the floor again and again in my apartment. My wife and children were away for the summer. Again and again I would notice a coin on the floor, and think to myself: how could I have failed to notice that coin if it had been in that spot all along?

Finally I decided to be super-careful about cleaning up any coins lying around the apartment. I would then take careful note of any additional coins I noticed. So I went all around the apartment, putting away every loose coin I could find. I then double-checked to make sure there were no coins lying around loosely anywhere in the apartment.

Immediately after completing this double-checking, I went into the kitchen to add some lemon juice to some tea I had made. While I was pouring the lemon juice, facing the oven, I noticed a penny rolling on the floor, coming from behind me, to my right. The penny was rolling on its edge. I have no explanation of how this coin could possibly have appeared with such a motion. There was no one else in the apartment. I had just finished double-checking that there were no coins in the apartment outside of coin containers. Given the motion of the coin (from behind me and to my right), there is no possibility it had fallen from a hole in my pocket. I cannot recall anyone in my family ever leaving a coin in the kitchen. I wrote up the incident just after it happened. 

The term "apport" is used for objects that seem to appear inexplicably. Since this event I have very many times noticed coins that are hard to explain. Again and again, I will suddenly notice some coin in some spot (usually the floor), a spot I had passed several times that day without noticing the coin.  In such cases I will ask myself: how could I have failed to notice that coin before?

Such a thing has been reported by many other people. If you do a Google search for "pennies from heaven" and "finding dimes" you can find many similar reports.

Orbs Are Immune to Camera Shakes

In this series of 8 photos I have shown mysterious orbs that appear sharp even though every thing else in the photo was blurred because the camera had jerked when the shot was taken. Below are two more of these photos, taken on April 7, 2017 and April 14, 2017.  We see two position states of the orb on the right, apparently because the orb is speeding. But the direction of motion (to the left or the right) is the opposite of the direction (upward or downward) in which the camera was moving when the photo was taken.
