The photos below show two mysterious orbs I photographed in the sky on May 9, 2017 and April 29, 2017 (two dry nights with no fog, mist, rain or precipitation).
here, here, and here to see the other 23 examples.
The visual below summarizes 20 patterns I have observed in mysterious
orbs I have photographed. The numbers show how many examples I have seen of each pattern. Examples of each of the patterns can be conveniently
seen in this post.
The number of orb pattern repetitions I am getting is so very high that coincidence is ruled out. We would not expect any observer in the universe to see this many pattern repetitions due to coincidence, partially because there are a trillion ways in which random marks might appear on an orb. I can think of two possibilities to explain such pattern repetitions. The first possibility is that mysterious orbs sometimes belong to different "species" or types, and that particular types have distinctive visual characteristics (just as particular animals have distinctive visual characteristics, like the stripes of a tiger or the spots of a leopard). The second possibility is that some kind of signalling or symbolism is going on, and that these pattern repetitions are repetitions of distinctive signals or symbols (similar to the pattern repetition that occurs when the letters of an alphabet repeatedly occur).
