Another Mysterious Orb With a Belt-Like Stripe

Photo date: March 1, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo shows a mysterious blue orb I photographed at Grand Central Terminal in New York.

Note the stripe stretching across the orb like some belt. This is the eighth time I have photographed an orb with such a belt-like stripe. Below we see all eight of these orbs (you can see the original posts here).

I have not previously logged this pattern in my table of repeating patterns in mysterious orbs, so I will now do so (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 14 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 4 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
Hockey stick 2 A stripe with a shape resembling a hockey stick
Backslash 4 Goes from one side of orb to another, diagonally. Looks like a backslash (not a slash)
Belt-like 8 A stripe goes from the left side of the orb to the right side, horizontally. This post
