This is the 4th mysterious orb I have photographed with such a pattern. Below are three others.

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).

Description Cases Comments URL
Inverted Y 7 Rather like the lower case lambda character, part of the Greek alphabet
Umbilical cord ( AKA "cul-de-sac") 10 Resembles an umbilical cord with a curved loop. Is it a symbol of motherhood?
Curved stripe at top or bottom 10 May be on top or bottom of orb
Diagonal stripe 25 Goes from one side of orb to another, diagonally. Looks like a slash (not a backslash)
Short diagonal stripe 5 Goes from top right corner toward center
Hose and circle 9 Looks like a ball that has fallen out of a tube
Slanted C 12 Looks like a C shape, tilted over quite a bit to the right
Inverted V 7 Looks rather like the caret character (an inverted V)
Hook-like stripe 4 Has a kind of candy-cane shape

4 stripes 2 Straight lines intersecting in a particular shape
Broken squiggly T 3 One wiggly horizontal stripe at the top well above a vertical stripe at the bottom

Backslash 7 Goes from one side of orb to another, diagonally. Looks like a backslash (not a slash)
Belt-like 14 A stripe goes from the left side of the orb to the right side, horizontally.
J-like 3 A stripe resembling the letter J.
Two-thirds of a Y 3 Resembles the letter Y with the left-most part missing
T with slanted top 4
Resembles the letter T, but with a slight break between the lines, and a slanted top that isn't wavy
Corner chord 12 The corner of the orb has a line stretching from one point on the circumference of the orb to another point on the circumference
