The 9th Time I've Seen This Orb Pattern

Photo date: February 15, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below shows a mysterious orb I photographed with a curved stripe at the bottom. This is the 9th time I have photographed a mysterious orb with this type of curved stripe at the top or bottom of the orb.

Below are some similar-looking orbs I photographed on previous days.

Below is my updated table listing recurring patterns in mysterious orbs I have photographed  (most of the examples referred to below can be conveniently seen in this post).
Description Occurrences 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 9 May be on top or bottom of orb

Diagonal stripe 13 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 11 Looks like a C shape, tilted over quite a bit to the right
Inverted V 3 Looks rather like the caret character (an inverted V)
Hook-like stripe 4 Has a kind of candy-cane shape
Curvy 9 which fell down 2 Looks like a curvy nine which “fell down”
4 stripes 2 Straight lines intersecting in a particular shape
Broken squiggly T 3 One wiggly horizontal stripe at the top above a vertical stripe at the bottom

Backslash 4 Goes from one side of orb to another, diagonally. Looks like a backslash (not a slash)
