Photo date: May 30, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.
The top photo below shows a mysterious orb I photographed at Grand Central Terminal in New York. It is the sixth mysterious orb I have photographed with a stripe resembling a hook or a cane. See here for five other examples of orbs with this type of hook-like stripe. What is remarkable here is how the orb's stripe seems to blend seamlessly with an architectural line in the station, making it look as if the station's structural stripe had stretched outward to become an orb stripe. It's a kind of positional synchronicity astonishingly unlikely to happen by chance.
This hook-stripe pattern is one of 20 recurring patterns I have noticed in mysterious orbs I have photographed. The visual below shows these patterns (see here for a post that shows lots of examples of most of these patterns).
