Confounding Chord

Photo date: June 18, 2019. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

In geometry a chord is a line connecting two points on a curve. I have 13 times photographed mysterious orbs with a chord stripe in one of the corners of the orb.  Below is the 13th and latest case of this orb pattern, photographed on a night with no fog, mist, rain or precipitation.

Below are 9 other times I photographed this "corner chord" pattern.

 Below are three more orbs with this pattern.

This "corner chord" 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).
