Is the Smithsonian Haunted? Orbs in Pictures
Spiritual Orbs In Pictures at the Smithsonian?
Recently my family and I took a trip to Washington DC and visited the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History. It was actually the only place wherein we were able to spend some time, as it was about 105 degrees in DC that day. Way too hot to be walking around a lot, especially with a preschooler.
Anyway, we took a ton of photos on our simple Kodak digital camera while in the Smithsonian including photographs of the animal exhibits, butterfly exhibit, the hope diamond, the sea life exhibit, and more. But the most intriguing photographs to me were the photos that I have posted for you all below...where I could clearly make out spiritual orbs in pictures of the dinosaur fossil exhibit. TRex seemed to have the most prominent spiritual orbs in pictures of him. Ironically, my husband took the orb pictures in the dinosaur exhibit which shocked me because I'm the big believer in such things as spiritual orbs, ghosts, etc. Please take a minute to scroll through the spiritual orb pictures below. There is also much more information on spiritual orbs following the orbs pictures.
What are spiritual orbs?
Spiritual orbs in pictures is a phenomenon of recent times wherein a picture is taken of a random place or person and a sphere of light shows up in the picture. Sometimes these spiritual orbs are faint and sometimes they are extremely bright. Most of the time they are circular in shape, but sometimes they can be pentagonal or even octagonal. While many times these spiritual orbs in pictures can be explained by logical reasoning (such as raindrops, dust or dirt on the camera lens) there are also times when we struggle to logically explain these orbs in pictures.
Another theory on spiritual orbs is that they are the same thing as the darting, flickering spheres of light in folklore known as the Will O' the Wisp or Wisps. This phenomenon has occurred on every continent around the world and many times is called something different depending on the culture. Will O' the Wisps are seen even here in the United States, specifically famous around railroad tracks. Read more about Will O' the Wisps by clicking here. Read about the Surrency Spooklight (another potentially powerful spiritual orb) by clicking here.
My Smithsonian spiritual orbs in pictures would be one of the times where I can't find a logical reasoning as to why the orbs showed up. Many paranormal theorists (including myself) believe that orbs are of a spiritual nature, possibly a part of a human spirit's energy or maybe a nature spirit's energy. In maybe in the case of the spiritual orbs in the Smithsonian pictures, perhaps they are animal spirits' energy.

Is the Smithsonian Museum Haunted?
After seeing the spiritual orbs in pictures that my family captured, I wondered is the Smithsonian Museum haunted? The building of the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History was built in the early 1900s, established by an English scientist named Smithson. The Smithsonian Museum idea was even older than the twentieth century, as Smithson lived in the late 1700s into the 1800s. He died in 1829 in Genoa, but his remains were eventually brought to the United States and encased in a tomb in Washington DC...in the Smithsonian Castle (the building across from the Museum of Natural History).
Smithson was very dedicated to the expansion of knowledge, so much so that he gave his riches to the United States to build a center for education and knowledge...what is now the complex system of Smithsonian Museums including the Museum of Natural History. Could Smithson's ghost be haunting the Smithsonian Museums...could one or more of these spiritual orbs be his energy? There were many more curators and scientists who have dedicated their lives to the pursuit of knowledge within the walls of the Smithsonian Museums including Spencer Baird and the taxidermist Watson Perrygo.
Many apparitions and strange occurrences have happened at the Smithsonian Museums and I'm not the only person who has caught spiritual orbs in pictures at the Smithsonian...particularly at the dinosaur exhibit. The reason I know this is because I did an image search on google for orbs at the Smithsonian...and someone else had posted a TRex photo with a spiritual orb in the picture! Another thought of mine is that perhaps the energy of the dinosaurs and the elephant themselves are floating around the Smithsonian...captured as spiritual orbs in pictures. After all, the bones of the dinosaurs are indeed real and the hide of the Smithsonian's famous elephant is also from a real elephant who died in the 1950s.
What do you think? Is the Smithsonian Museum haunted? What about the spiritual orbs in pictures taken there?
