Paranormal Phenomena/ORBS


My friend and I went to Jerome Arizona on Saturday to visit an old Gold Mine which they call a ghost town.  When we were leaving it started to snow so I go out my digital camera and popped the flash and took a picture.  My friend did the same with her camera.  We took pictures within a couple of minutes of each other.  I sent her my pictures because I told her that mine contained orbs.  She said hers did not.  I had taken other pictures with the flash but I don't see any orbs.  Is is possible to see them in only one photo and not others.  Will gladly send the picture on if you would like to see it.  We were just a couple of teachers on a quick holiday why did I see them and not her?

Hi Georgine,

This is a good question.

Well, the fact that you took the photo of orbs when it was snowing is due to lens refraction. Light from the flash bouncing off snow flakes, breath fog, microscopic water droplets in the cold air, etc. will be sent back to your camera lens and create all kinds of orb shapes, lights and anomalies on your photo. The same thing happens in foggy or rainy weather. I've even had that happen in high humidity conditions where absolutely nothing is visible to the naked eye.

Your picture suffers from environmental contamination. The fact that it happened once is just a matter of your flash depth, condensation density, and your position.

Hope this helps a bit,
