Stormy Night Orbs

Stormy Night Orbs Cheyenne MacMastersThe sky tonight was so beautifully cloudy, I pulled out my camera to see if there were any orbs in the neighborhood.

Agave plants seem to attract the most orbs on our hillside.

What is particularly fascinating about tonight’s orbs is that they are windblown.

Most of these orbs are leaving trails and they are all heading south.

Never occurred to me that an orb could be windblown while sailing overhead.

I especially like the orb blowing by in front of the agave stalk.

You’d think we were experiencing a meteor shower of orbs.

These orbs above may be heading away from the camera.

The wind was so strong this evening that besides blowing the orbs to the south it motivated me to make sure nothing would blow from our yard into the street.

Again, one orb is just speeding past the arm of an agave. Who knew that the very physical characteristics of wind could have an effect on what Klaus Heinemann calls an “emanation of a spiritual being”?
