Photographer: Mark Mahin.
The photo poster below is a composite of 48 orb photos previously
published on this site. You can find all of the original photos by
looking at my posts labeled "speeding air orb" between August 9, 2015 and December 31, 2015. These photos all show orbs that appear to be moving
very fast. Open the photo in a separate browser tab to see the poster at its full resolution.
If you look at the original photos, you will see that each of the
anomalies was photographed well away from the edge of the photo. Given
this fact and the fact that I have short hair, we cannot explain any of
these photos as being a stray hair from the photographer, nor can any be
explained as a photo of a camera strap.
We also cannot explain these orbs as dust, as all of them seem to be
showing very rapid motion. Indoor dust particles move at only about 2
miles per hour, and the outdoor wind speed was never more than 20 miles
an hour when any of these photos were taken. But we see here objects
that seem to be moving very fast, many times faster than 20 miles an
hour. The photos were taken with cameras that have an effective shutter
speed of about 1/1000 of a second (that's for a flash photo, and all of
these are flash photos). All of the original photos were taken when
the camera was held steady (with nothing other than the orb appearing to
show motion). Under such conditions, an object must be moving very
fast to appear like the items in the photos above.
None of the photos showing orbs with "comet tails" can be explained as
raindrops, as none of the outdoor photos were taken when there was any
fog, mist, rain, or precipitation.
This is the third poster like this I have published. Click here to see the "Speeding Orbs #2" poster showing 49 speeding orbs. Click here to see the "Speeding Orbs #1" poster showing 37 speeding orbs.
