What is an Orb

Updated on September 21, 2012

What Are Orbs

A few months ago I received an email from someone at YouTube. His name is stanley03061973 and it read “Orbs attacking me”. At first I thought it to be another spam, but from YouTube? I have a YouTube account but no one other than the admin had ever sent me mail from there before. I decided to check what it was about.

I found out that stanley03061973 had a YouTube channel completely full of videos where he sat in his living room in the middle of the night video taping moving particles he called Orbs. Some Orbs flew in all directions while some stood still . They came through walls, the ceiling, the window, and the floor. “This has got to be a hoax” I thought to myself. This fool is out in the outback of Australia getting drunk and seeing things.

Skepticism tells me that these Orb things must be dust particles or something similar, maybe even a camera trick he found out how to perform. Stanley anticipated skepticism from his viewers so he set up several forms of proof for his discovery. In one video he used a fan to show that the blowing air had no effect on the flight or direction the Orbs were moving in. He also took his camera outside his house to show that they were outside also.

In several videos Stanley attempted to show that some of the Orbs morphed into human-like faces as they flew. He pointed out other faces that didn’t move at all but just stood still watching the activity in the room. Perhaps his most unbelievable claim was that he could talk to the Orbs and some of them were talking to him.

After awhile I decided to check if Stanley and his Orbs was a unique phenomenon. I did several searches and found hundreds of similar videos and pictures of these Orb things. I then decided to check some of my own videos and images. I did find some in these images below.

Whatever these Orbs of light are there doesn’t seem to be any known conclusive explanation as yet. As for stanley03061973, he continues to send me emails and I continue to check them out. I haven’t decided what to make of this phenomenon yet. Please check out Stanly's site on YouTube.

Here are some other pictures with Orbs that were took in early February at a Bob Marley birthday tribute my girlfriend organized. In the first picture you see the Orb come across over the picture on the wall. Then it sat above the guy recording the event. Later when the show was done several Orbs gathered around the artists on stage. They are not as bright as the other picture however. If you blow up the picture you should be able to see them. I thought they were light affects but not all the pictures I took that night had them. I only posted some of those that did.

      Hi Arthur. These Orbs things are fascinating to say the least. I have double checked through many of my pictures and have found many more since I posted this hub. Hopefully Some day soon there will be an answer as to what they really are.

      I have several pictures taken in my home that these same orbs appear in. Exactly like what you have shown here. I always thought it was a defect in the film as I have never seen them with a digital camera. I have one picture that has what appears to be a giant S in orb form. Very interesting.

      "Orbs" seems to be very interesting but it is totally unknown to me.
