The 15th Mysterious Orb With a Diagonal Slash

 Photo date: March 5, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

The photo below shows a mysterious orb I photographed on a dry night with no fog, mist, rain or precipitation.

This is the 15th time I've photographed a mysterious orb with such a slash. Below are 10 of the other photos.

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).

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 15 Goes from one side of orb to another, diagonally. Looks like a slash (not a backslash) This post
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 12 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.

The visual below summarizes these patterns and the number of times I have observed them.
