Orb Guest Photographs the Dark

We have a guest orb photographer for today’s post, Kathy Phelps, best known on WordPress for her blog, Nature Snippets: http://naturesnippets.com/


Kathy counted about 50 orbs around the huge elm tree by her barn. It’s a lovely tree and would make a good subject to come back to many times to check out the orbs who are at home within its branches.

I like the orbs on the upper left that seem to be coming in for a landing in front of Kathy’s house in Illinois.

Kathy continues to experiment with finding the best placement of camera to subject to bring out the orbs who soar through her property. She can feel them and is discovering their many colors as well. I look forward to her further adventures with orbs.

We have a special treat tomorrow, which Kathy will also enjoy. Klaus Heinemann, Ph.D., co-author of two books that are the classics on orbs: The Orb Project, and Orbs Their Mission and Messages of Hope, will be our guest bringing a new understanding of orbs. Tune in tomorrow evening for this rare presentation.

For those of you who are new to this blog, or would like to refresh your memory as to what orbs are, perhaps this will help: https://orbsdelight.wordpress.com/2012/11/17/photographing-orbs/

    1. There are many theories. The one that makes the least sense is that they are ghosts. The one that I like the most is from Klaus Heinemann, who got his Ph.D. in experimental physics and worked as a material science researcher for NASA, and is my guest in tomorrow’s post. After taking thousands of orb photographs and conferring with other scientists at Stanford University where he was a professor, he theorizes that orbs are emanations of spiritual beings. Just like the headlights of a car are not the driver, the orb is not the being but its emanation. It seems that the flash of digital photography has expanded our narrow visual range to now being able to perceive these other beings. I have noticed that orbs respond to moments of passion and enthusiasm, which is why I photograph musical performances and find large and vibrant orbs in my photographs. But, they also like cruising outside over rooftops and trees. Give it a try. You’ll need to use flash at night because digital flash causes something inside the orb to fluoresce back at the camera. If you scroll through the posts on my blog you might enjoy the various colors, sizes, shapes, and intensities of the orbs.


        1. Wonder is what keeps me questing for orbs each night, even if I simply step out onto my porch and take a few flash photographs of the sky. Please tune in this evening to the next post with words from Dr. Heinemann himself and a little more description of his scientific career.


  1. Thanks for the explanation (above). I was about asking the same question. Frankly, I will be visiting your blog to see more of these orbs for myself.


    1. Your welcome. I am fascinated by the orbs and truly enjoy introducing them to people such as yourself who may not have been aware of how pervasive they are. Simply, they are everywhere.
