A Mark So Mysterious

Photo date: March 24, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below shows a striped orb I photographed in the night sky. It looks very much like 19 other mysterious orbs I have photographed with diagonal slash stripes.

Carbonaro Effect Meets Precognition Effect?

There's a very funny TV show I've just started to watch on the TruTV channel. It's called The Carbonaro Effect.  It's a combination magic show and hidden camera show. Magician Michael Carbonaro acts like some ordinary person (such as a cashier), and interacts with unsuspecting people, who are exposed to startling magic effects they weren't expecting to see. For example, in one show Michael is a supermarket cashier checking out someone's milk carton, and he transforms the carton so that it has on its back a "Have You Seen This Person?" image that matches the face of the very person trying to buy the milk.

Something very strange happened last night. I was watching an episode of the show I hadn't seen before, and for a few seconds went into my kitchen, where I suddenly had an idea for something that would be funny in the context of the show.  My idea was: Michael could put a frozen fish into a microwave, run the microwave, and then remove a live fish. I then came back to watch some more of the episode. Within 60 seconds the show had exactly the same thing I had imagined: Michael putting a frozen fish into a microwave, running the microwave, and then removing a live fish.

I have no explanation for this coincidence, and I'm very certain I had never watched the episode before. 

Orb Turns the Blackness Into Green

Baffling Blue Balls Align to Beveled Borders

On the left and right sides of the huge windows at Grand Central Terminal, there are beveled borders. Below we see three mysterious blue orbs I photographed at this location, all of which are exactly aligned to the line of this beveled border. The photo on the left is from February 24, 2017, and the other two photos are from this post.

These are merely a few of the hundreds of cases of "aligning orbs" I have photographed (see here for 224 examples).

Orb Rings

Photo date: March 22, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

I took the photo below while photographing ordinary drops of pure, clean water falling against a dark featureless background. We see here another example of the strange phenomenon I call orb rings, which are also shown in this series of 45 photos.

The Big Sky Thing

Photo date: March 21, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below shows a mysterious large orb I photographed near a building in New York City. The orb was about 10 percent of the original photo height.  A dust particle would have to be about 1500 microns to appear this large in a photo, but outdoor dust particles have a size of only about 1 micron.

I Hope the Sky Orb Wasn't Bleeding

Baffling Backslash Balls

The photo below shows two mysterious orbs that I photographed in the sky on March 16, 2017 and March 17, 2017. Both have a diagonal stripe that resembles a backslash.

There was no fog, mist, rain or precipitation on either of these nights.
 
This is the sixth time I have photographed a mysterious orb with this type of backslash stripe. Conversely, I have 18 times photographed mysterious orbs with a diagonal stripe in the opposite direction (orbs with a stripe that makes a slash rather than a backslash).

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

The Orb With a Diagonal Slash Inside the Orb With a Diagonal Slash

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

The photo below shows a mysterious orb I photographed in the sky. Like 17 other mysterious orbs I have photographed (as shown here), the purple orb has a diagonal stripe resembling a slash.  What is amazing here is that we see in the exact center of the orb another orb which also has a diagonal stripe resembling a slash.  It's kind of like a Matryoshka doll effect.

The Orb Behind the Fence

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

In the photo below we see an orb that seems to be behind the fence at the bottom. This is one of many photos I have published showing orbs behind distant obstructions. Such photos help to refute claims that orbs are tiny specks near the camera (a claim that is untenable for the physical and mathematical reasons discussed here).

I took the photo below while photographing nothing but ordinary drops of pure, clean water falling against a dark background. We see a strange row of orbs, each of which looks like it has been bitten on the right side. The strange green color on the left is also weird.
