Bright White Orb Of Light

Updated on April 26, 2016


In 2006 I went on a hiking and camping trip with my parents and brother. Little did I know that I would witness something that I could not identify, that nobody believed I had seen, and that would change my view of life on Earth and other planets.

Have you seen an orb before?

It was a hot, humid day, and after packing two old-fashioned (heavy) frame packs, and my brother's more modern (light) frameless pack, we set off up the North Shore of Lake Superior in Minnesota. As there was no overnight parking allowed at the head of the trail, we had to drive a few miles further to the State Park, and walk from there to the trail.

The trail itself was beautiful, but long and arduous. Hours and many miles went by before we finally made camp and got to enjoy ourselves. We ended up deep in the wild forestland of northern Minnesota. The closest road was miles away, and we were quite alone. It's a place where you can actually see the stars without city lights getting in the way, and black bears and moose live there as if humans don't exist. The only sounds are of nature.

As it was getting dark, we decided to make a fire, eat, and get some rest. My parents would share a tent about 15 feet away from ours. The hot, humid day turned into a hot, humid night, and my brother suggested we take the wind cover off of the top of our tent to let some air in overnight. Just a mesh screen remained above us. When I finally got into my sleeping bag, I couldn't sleep. There was a root beneath my back, it was sweltering hot, and though I tried, all that really happened was that I shut my eyes and lay there.

As I couldn't sleep, and was painfully awake--and the only one, I might add--I just lay there thinking and trying to get more comfortable. Even with a camping air mattress under me, that root kept me awake.

With my eyes closed, I started seeing some sort of pattern under my eyelids; something bright, that made me open my eyes. As I was on my back, naturally when I opened my eyes I was looking straight up, out the tent's roof, and into the sky. What I saw there made me freeze.

If you've experienced an orb of light, was it a:

There, at treetop level, just 15 feet above me, was a bright orb of light. It was the size of a softball or small grapefruit, perfectly round, and hovering right above the tent! Though I had seen those UFO shows with bright balls of light flitting across the screen, I had assumed they were faked. I'm a scientist by nature and study, and believe those sorts of things only when I see them. Though UFO theory has always piqued my interest, that's about it. I never gave much credit to the theories, or to the white balls of light--until I saw one.

My orb, however, did not act like the balls of light I'd seen in many videos and had heard of in many descriptions. It would slowly follow a straight line about 5 feet long, and then the light would go out for a few seconds, and return. Each time this happened, the orb would appear at a different spot, follow the straight line again, and go out. It was like a humongous firefly, but with bright white light, and perfectly round. This went on for literally hours while I lay transfixed and immobile, not wanting to move or breathe. When I shut my eyes, I could see it moving, disappearing, and moving again. I would open my eyes again, and sure enough, it was still there. I did this many times, thinking I might be crazy. But I'm not crazy. I'm a rational, scientific person, and what I was seeing was something that I could not explain--and still can't.

In the morning, I told my parents and brother what I'd seen. Of course they asked why I hadn't woken them up. After all, my brother was laying right beside me. It's a good question, and one that has haunted me ever since. The truth is that this ball of light was hovering 15 feet above me, very, very close, and I felt that I should not move or it would leave. Do I regret not waking my brother up? Yes and no. Yes, because nobody has ever believed me, and no, because I got to experience this ball of light for hours.

Since my "sighting" I have looked all over the internet for similar white balls of light. Most people describe them as fast, or that you could feel their energy, or that they only last for a few minutes. Mine was totally different. It was slow and methodical, like a huge, perfectly-round firefly, and it was above me for hours and hours. Did I feel any sort of energy? No. But I did feel totally transfixed and absolutely awed. I didn't want to move, but I could have if I'd wanted to.

I would rather have watched the ball of light for hours than to have a witness who scared it away. Some people say that maybe it wouldn't have left, but the "feeling" I got was that I was communing, alone, with something I could not identify, and any movement would end the experience. I didn't want it to leave. I wanted to watch it and experience it. Did I consider waking my brother at the time? Yes, over and over again. But every time I thought that if I moved, it would be gone.


These white orbs of light that I've now read so much about often occur in the middle of nowhere, as in my case. I don't know why, or what they are, or what exactly it was doing, but we were the only people out there--and for some reason, it was right above us. Did it seek us out? Did it study us? What was it doing there?

There are way more questions than answers. I think about my experience a lot, and have come to no conclusions. But I saw it with my own eyes, and whatever it was was not evil, was nothing we know of in nature, and may not even have been of this world. Some theories exist, like the foo fighters theory, that these balls of light can be manufactured using mercury. However, this thing acted like something with a brain, not like something attracted by magnetism.

I wanted to attach a video of someone's sighting of one of these orbs of light, since I didn't have a camera with me. However, I've searched and searched, and most of the sightings either look fake, or they're so far away that it's not representative of my experience at all. This thing was close, and it didn't morph, and it wasn't fast.



If anyone has had a similar experience with a white ball of light, please comment below. I am fascinated by my experience, but have not found any accounts that are similar to mine.

Do aliens (or beings of visible light) exist? I'm sure it's possible, but I'm not sure that that's what I saw. An alien probe? Maybe, but then again, that's just speculation. Have you seen the white balls of light? Let me know your story so that I might understand mine better.

Thank you.

      I had a large ball of light travel from the outside and came through the glass doors and stay for a second or two. It was about 3 feet round and solid white. Not see through. It then began to move slowly and then speed up and made its way to me as I was sitting on the couch about 15 feet away. It pushed me back into the couch and went out the front window. Never saw it again. My hair changed from dead straight to curly after that.

      About 1130 pm on January 7, we noticed a bright white light hovering above the skylight over our bed. It flashed a few times and then disappeared. The light was an arch and it seemed to circle our skylight. It was a clear night and the sky was filled with stars.

      Again, approximately4:30 a.m.,lying in bed, noted what looked like a small arch of light in the dark sky. As I never see stars here in the mountains so I got up. As again my contacts were not in I got my binoculars and noted it was comprised of small colored lights. If I followed it with my eyes it seemed to zig zag quickly. If I looked away it seemed stationary. This was in south west Mexico. Second time I have seen an orb. The first one was several months ago but that one was in my room and interacted with me. Last time I checked it was gone.

      I see them everynight but there not bright white. They are red or blue and sometimes black. i am the least spiritual person you would ever meet and have no understanding on why i was chosen to know the answer of these orb like holograms along with a whole other stuff i cant explain and dont feel like it. If you look closer into the sphere you can a spirit or character of some shape and from what the higher power along with the trees is your suppose to eat them or breath them in as i like to look at it and wow does it give off some energy. Look thru an ir camera at some trees during the night and you will see them sucking them in like skittles. Sounds crazy an d i would have laughed in my own face about 6 months ago so i dont expect anyone to believe this but for the ones who have been there seeing these "orbs handed to you by all types of wierd things know that its true and that is just the start of seeing a whole lot more. Goodluck on seeing more!

      Yes, i witnessed a white light like you describe but it was larger than a basketball and it flew over my head in the evening time just before dark (PASADENA TX)

      Me and my best friend tried to chase it but it was way to fast.

      I grew up got married and was also made fun of for my story.

      My wife at the time loved teasing me about it. Until one day in San Antonio while driving to the river walk that same white orb flow over our car approx 150 ft above us. My ex started crying in fear. I was estactic screaming " I TOLD YOU!!"

      Yesterday i woke up from my sleep and saw a super bright white light hovering above my chest closer to my neck. it was the size of a softball but so bright that i couldn't see the rest of my body. I was sleeping on my back at the time. The weird thing is that when i saw it i just felt so much love and happiness, i cant even explain the feeling. I felt as if irt was reading my heart beat. I then layed back down and woke up like a minute later still feeling so much love. I was thinking to myself did i dream that or was it real. So today as i was going to shower i looked in the mirror and noticed that i have a perfect round circle bruise looking mark in the middle of my neck. i did not have this the day before. idk whats going on, just wanted to share my story.

      My sister, my fiancé, and I were out walking the dogs this morning when we saw an orb!!!! My fiancé unfortunately didn't see it but my sister did, it was perfectly round, purest white light and the size of a tennis ball. It was about 20ft from the ground and moved a little slower then someone throwing a ball, then it vanished without trace. Simply disappeared! This was on Westbrook beach, Margate in Kent. My sister then saw a second one about 20mins later doing exactly the same thing. It was beautiful.

      OMG!!! This is what my mother's told me!!! My dad and her were asleep in bed but mum was awake and she saw a ball of white light hovering over her, like just slowly and then the light split into two and shot off like a rocket!!! She wonders if it was her dad who had just passed and maybe his sister together but it's just not "spirit like" to me....

      Once it left, my mum nudged my dad and said "paul, paul wake up, omg did u see that"?!!!

      My dad had just been recovering from a massive heart attack and he's a huuuuge snorer/deep sleeper (could sleep standing up), he was built like an ox, a strong man, (blokey, bloke) and the biggest skeptic I know!...He was awake and mum said he replied in a teeny tiny voice "yes i did"...

      That makes me laugh because I never imagined him to be that amazed! He always thought it was all bull! Its like he has always believed there was something greater out there! I dunno what it was, but dad can still back my mum up on this, he saw it too at the same time! I see where mum thinks it was a sign from her loved ones, maybe it was, but I'm very spiritual and I don't feel like bright white light just hovering over you and then shooting off at the speed of light is that. I feel it could be something"extraterrestrial ", to me it would fit in that catagory....

      I have seen these strange light balls. I have seen them white, blue, and black. Recently I saw a white one that lingered around me for a while. It separated into smaller objects. I think they are pure energy. They could be spirits or entities from another universe that somehow come inside our planet. I hope that someday I will have a trusted public forum to share my photos.

      I seen one yesterday on my way home from work. It was a ball of light, there was no tail on it and it moved horizontal and then shot straight up very fast, at first I thought it was the glare from the sun on my glasses but it was not.

      I have no idea what it was but I have never seen anything like this before.

      I was driving down the back road to my house last night (I live in the country so road is dark and away from town) and as I was approaching the river to my right on the bridge I see glowing balls of fire twirling around almost like how the natives do with the chain and fire in each hand but I could not see any person nor any car. All I could see is these erratic fire balls swirling around each other with smaller flicks of light swirling around them. I just stared trying to logically explain what I was seeing. This was at 10:30 at night. I live in a small red neck country town not a city. I was going to stop my car and get out but something told me not the right thing to do. I wish I thought to use my phone and video it but i was afraid to come to a complete stop as road is isolated. Then I was going to turn around and go back and look again but I half expected those lights might follow me (my mind set at the time) I went there today but no evidence of anything that I could see. I regret not stopping! !!! Damn weirdest thing I ever saw. It was not up in the sky but at eye level.

      Last week me and my step daughter witnessed a white orb that filled us into the garage then exploded into thousands of little orbs that fixed away making a slight high pitch buzz at the end. I almost thought someone took a picture beside us with a old first gen flash camera. . This is bow the second time in my life that I've seen an orb up close and personal. Another time I was at a friend's party and we were all standing in the kitchen and only me and one other person are the same time watched an orb fly into an empty beer box and it also exploded into many white orb and we both said wow did you see that at the same time and when we looked nothing was there no burns or evidence of anything that may have cause that. I also have had them in many of my pics from the past. The spirits and holy energy is among us no big secret.

      Hi, I have seen this light as well. It happened right after a year and a half after my mom passed away. It was also odd because the day "they" appeared was on my mom's birthday as well. I would even say right around her birth time. It was around 3 or 4 am when I was awaken from my sleep. I remember feeling very calm and happy. I was going through a lot of grief and I think something was there to comfort me.

      A couple years ago (2011) myself and some friends were at my brothers house in Melrose, FL around a fire drinking beer and hanging out. Around 2am I noticed this orb--something like I'd never seen before and have never seen again. It was the size of a volleyball and about chin-height (I'm 5'7)... It floated directly in front of me and I watched it in awe as it slowly drifted off into the woods.

      It was extremely bright, but not bright like a light bulb--it literally shone bright like the sun. I don't know how no one else noticed it--they were all talking, but it was so extrordiany and RIGHT in front of us! They all thought I was crazy!

      The next day my brother called me and he sounded like he had just seen a ghost. He saw the orb again while taking out his trash after dinner! He said it was like 10-15ft in front of him and the same height from the ground that I described. He said it moved slowly and was extremely bright, just as I had stated the night before.

      Looking back now, I still have no idea what it really was that I saw. But in 29yrs of my life I've never seen anything like it again and I know deep down that what I saw was not "man-made". It was absolutely extra terrestrial.

      In Dunedin, front of my front door up in the sky, on a side street with land, a church & woods across the way.

      There were 5-6, one in the center and each other one coming into the center one ( i called it kissing).a photographer neighbor came by & I asked if she saw & got i didn't leave the orbs to get my camera.Ended up she said, ? She never got pics a few days later.oh well, I KNOW what I experienced & I watched them for a good 1/2 hour.My dog & I took a walk down the road AND THEY FOLLOWED! I felt a very warm feeling & connection to them.I felt bad because when I put Dakota back in the house & got camera, they were gone when I went back out.

      I don't remember if this happened before or after the Gulf oil spill.

      Right after the oil spill, I felt heartbroken so went to the shore to pray...I DID get pucs of line green orbs on the water, shore & in sky close above the water.

      I took this to be Healing for the Gulf waters.

      My 6 year old daughter told me today that when she was in the shower a bright white ball of light appeared. I asked where it came from and she said it was just there when she looked up. She said it was very bright and when she looked at it there were lots of little balls of light flying around it. I asked her if she was scared and she said no. She said she reached out to touch it but the light was so bright that she closed her eyes. And when she opened her eyes it was gone. She said she blinked a few times to see if it would come back but it never did. Her dad died when she was two. I’m always actively looking for him and hoping and praying and nothing ever happens. I like to believe this was him some how.....

I wAs so disappointed this was not a plain white light it had no defined edges, it was so beautiful and I stayed on my deck for a good length of time to maybe catch a glimpse of another one but sadly that has never happened again

      I regularly see the balls of light and I also communicate with them. They usually drop what has been described as "angel hair"; please see online descriptions of this material.

      They warn me of dangerous situations coming up in my life and I prepare for these situations. I believe these to be angels and welcome their company.

      I saw an orb or a ball of light. It was coming over the hills right at dusk but a huge Hercules plane was following it. Like the government was trying to figure out what it was but I just concluded it was super natural. The other one I seen was three balls of light that morphed into a metal triangle in front of my eyes. It was collecting what looked like stars to get bigger and then when it took of there was rosters on the bottom of it but it was quiet crazy and fast. I lost my mind how can light transform into metal? And what kind of beings can do that? I'm still puzzzled.

I can't remember exactly how it appeared or where it went (my sister neither which is odd) but I remember us both just stopping in the street staring, it was just over arms length away at head height and drifted slowly, the light in the centre was REALLY bright. But yeah that's my experience would pass any lie detector anyday, and my sister would too! Adam

      3 years ago I was in bed with my then partner. I was crying due to the abuse he was putting me through. My partner at that time had turned from me to ignore my pain and I felt so alone, tears rolling down my face while laying there in the darkness.

      I don't know if I was sleeping or awake as I dont remember closing my eyes, I just rember one minute I was staring at the ceiling in the dark and then the next I was walking down a marble hall. Everything was white marble including the doors which looked beautiful. I don't remember seeing my body there were no sounds of my foot steps if I'm making sense. I turned left in to this big room at the end of the hall and it had pillars in this room with steps in the room making the floor various level in the far corners of the room. Again everything in this room was white marble, then in the centre of the room was a huge orb and when I say huge I mean huge. The orb was so white and bright it was almost like it was pulsating in a way. Though the orb was predominantly white it had streaks of glowing light blues and purple and maybe silver I cant fully remember if there was silver but definitely the other two colours. As I looked at this orb I don't know how much time went by but it felt like so much and yet so little time had gone, then everything gently went black, the last bit of light faded from the orb and I was in pitch black vision wise for a moment, then my vision cleared and I was looking back up at the ceiling again, it was as if my eyes never closed and I don't think they did but I remember having the biggest smile on my face, I was so happy and at peace. I had never felt so light I can't explain the joy, it was beyond anything I can imagine and in that short moment I went into the most peaceful sleep that I ever had. I will never forget it.

      On Sept 30, 2017 while in Costa Rica on an overnight camping excursion into the jungle after a long day of exploring, my guide and I returned to our campsite high up on a ridge between 2 volcanoes. Exhausted and wet from a heavy rainstorm and trekking through an unexplored/untraveled part of the terrain we climbed into our tree tent to dry off and for safety from the nocturnal animal hunters since it was already dark. About an hour later with the rainstorm heavy, no light from anywhere because we were under the dense canopy of the jungle, my guide/friend looks out the ventilation window at the back of the tent and spots something hovering in the jungle about 30-50 feet away. He immediately asked me for verification of what he was seeing and when I looked, it was as he said. There behind us was an orb of light of from his description, looked like a cotton ball. I looked around the tent to see if perhaps something had turned on such as a flashlight or maybe my phone that was in the net cradle hanging inside the tent but there was nothing that was reflecting light not even the light of the moon since it was early evening, we were under the thick canopy and there were heavy clouds from the rainstorm. We both stared at it and watched as it lightly and slowly bounced up and down in the distance under the canopy. My guide asked if he should shine the flashlight on it but I told him no and for us just to watch to see what it did. This went on for minutes and I was convinced that I was seeing things but knew that it was impossible that I could be mistaking something that my guide too was witnessing. Eventually I shined the light on it and as I did, it shot off to the right and then just disappeared. It spooked my guide pretty good but I never felt we were in any danger. It was not the first unexplained encounter on the volcanoes we had and probably not the last.

      In 1996, saw it from the car as we were driving home late at night. The driver also spotted the light. Solid, white, moving at a slow speed from the right side of the car to the left. It hovered there for a few seconds and then flitted away Star Trek style, like it went into warp speed or something. If we weren't in the middle of nowhere, I would thought it was a slow-moving street light... Obviously nobody believed us, as only 2 of the 4 of us saw it. Whole thing took about 20 seconds. There was nothing else around, so in the dark I couldn't tell how high up it was, but probably no more than 20 metres.

      -32.950925, 18.115904 is approximately where it happened.

      my experience was very different to those posted. years ago i woke up to a feeling as though someone was putting a light close to my eyes, i could see it through closed lids, its what woke me up. the light was intense in an all dark bedroom, i held up my hand to block the light but it didn't stop it. I woke my boyfriend {now husband} to have him see it, it made me nervous. He looked at me and said " what the hell is that , get it of of you". Told him i could not, we turned on the light and could still see it, i went to a mirror and saw the white light, about the size of a twenty five cent coin , again i put my hand an inch or two from my face, and it was still there, under my hand on my forehead , close to between my eyes. This lasted for at least an hour, eventually i went to sleep. The next evening it happened to my boyfriend, really scared him, i told him to try to relax as eventually it would go away. The third evening it happened to me again, and i decided to just lay there, close my eyes and try to sense what it all felt like, eventually, it felt like my mind was floating through the universe, extremely calming soothing sense of all the senses being alert to weightlessness. Forty years later, and we still can't believe it all really happened to us. The few people we have told this experience to, suggested we should just forget about it, that others might question our sanity. We both know it was real and really happened to us both, maybe it will happen again , but it has been such a long time ago that i really would be surprised. It would make more sense to have an experience as the ones described by others here on this site, wondering if any one ever had something like what we experienced.

      One night out of the blue I woke up to a golf/tennis ball sized orb hovering a few inches above my face. I was surprised and quite nervous at the same time to see something so white and bright, just hovering and hovering up and down continuously. I woke up my wife who was next to me ofcourse, and pointed at the orb. She couldn’t see it, i was the only one able to see it. I continued aiming and pointing at it but she still couldn’t see it. It hovered for atleast 2-3 minutes and it was flying away, I didn’t want it to leave without my wife seeing it, she would think I’m crazy or having illusions. I continued to point at it and it was hovering away to my chandelier and as soon as it touched it, the lights in the room turned on. Sounds crazy but that’s the only way my wife believes me.

      About a week ago I was brushing my hair in the hallway and I saw a bright orb (about the size of a basketball) in the doorway in my room but I blinked and then it was gone. I ran to my room and searched for the orb for about 15-20 minutes but I couldn't find it. I don't know if I should tell someone because they might think I'm crazy. No matter how much I search all I can find is little and fast orbs, but this one was a decent size and didn't move. It just disappeared when I blinked. Should I tell my parents?

      I just signed up so I could comment on this ball of light article. Currently I live in an apartment complex in Sacramento that oddly enough has had all sorts of "spiritual" activity. Since living here I have captured evp's, heard a child laughing in my living room at midnight, seen black orbs knock over my bow, just regular poltergeist stuff.

      Last December I saw the most spectacular thing I've ever seen in the corner of my apartment. I was using my computer in the living room and looked over toward the kitchen and in the top corner of the room was a white ball of light about 9 inches wide. I stared at it for about 5 seconds then as if time stopped it was gone leaving the ornament we pinned to the ceiling swinging wildly back and forth. The odd part is there were multiple ornaments pinned into the ceiling within 6 inches of each other but only 1 of them was moving which was in the same spot where the white ball of light was. The ball of light was very white with a transparent aura around it like it was radiating energy. In the very center of this ball of light it turned from translucent white to more yellow then to orange which looked to be a small 2inch flame in the middle of it.

      A few weeks later my girlfriend said she saw the light also next to the key rack that is next to the door. She yelled for me and I looked over at her then to the keys where she pointed and sure enough the keys in the middle of the rack were swinging back and forth. The odd thing again is there were sun glasses and another key ring less than 3 inches away from the swinging keys hanging on this key rack not moving at all.

      Sorry for the length, I wanted to be accurate and detailed. I hope someone can tell me they have seen this type of white orb also. Thank You.

      I live in southwestern Minnesota. I took the dog for a walk in the early evening. It was dark, but not completely as I could see the outline of trees. While walking up a street I always take, one white orb came shooting my way just above the trees. It came out of no where, not from a long distance away, as though a light simply turned on right by me. It looked as bright as a car light, was above the trees near by and completely silent. It did not have a tail of light, only a round, white orb, very well defined edges. I watched it fly above the trees, still very bright and then disappear like a lightbulb being turned off. It looked like it was moving fast and I expected it to be gone quickly, but it wasn't. I know it was close because I could see it was just above the trees. I called my husband right away to tell him because I didn't think anyone would believe me. I tried to distinguish what I actually saw and I know I saw it. I sent an email to my sister about what I saw and she sent this website in response. I've always wanted to see something like this and feel very lucky to have experienced it. I only wish someone else had been with me to witness it besides my dog.

      This morning at approx 4:20 I was awakened by a thunder storm. I noticed an approx 1 inch perfect round bright light on the floor approx 12 ft away. I watched trying to figure out it's source. I was not frightened just fascinated and curious. I got up, went over, bent down, placed my hand over it , 2 in. above, as I pulled my hand away the light stayed under my hand moving with it as I moved my hand back and forth. Then I think I pulled my hand away as I stood up,and it scooted right under the glass door onto the terrace, then it moved about in and area of approx 2 feet, right under the area protected from the rain. it stayed there for minutes, then I attempted a photo, turned on the light and that was that. The area where it went under is a 12 foot tall heavy glass sliding door. I doubt it was a firefly. This occurred in Las Joyas, Valle de Bravo, Mexico.

      I have seen one of these, 4th of July 2012, walking back from the fireworks at a local park we stopped on a street corner, two friends and I. I think I saw it first but I did not have to point it out to my friends. The three of us stood there staring almost in a trance, would have never thought to take a picture. I got to see it approach. Started out like a star or satellite just a small white light growing larger and larger as if it came from deep space until it was right above a 60 foot maple tree. White ball around 3 feet in diameter, around twice the size of a basketball. Bright white. It hovered briefly then did some corkscrew patterns up and down for around 3 minutes which felt like 3 hours. Then in the same way it appeared it disappeared slowly getting smaller before it was again star looking as if it were going back into deep space at light speed. It came to us, there is now way it was coincidence we happened upon the same street corner as this being. I always knew we weren't alone in this universe, but this solidified my beliefs in an entirely new way. I was not alone and all three of us remember it vividly to this day. I expect no one to believe me nor should they, they did not see what we saw. But boy did we see something amazing and life changing that night. The light was benevolent, it told us more about life by simply revealing itself than any wise old man could.

      Watched one of these balls of light hover over my back yard about 2 years ago but was much larger than a softball. It was silent and was so bright I could see rays of light coming off of it. It paused just to the right of my yard and "blinked" out leaving a orange glow as if you watched a light bulb being turned off. Luckily my girlfriend also witnessed it with me so I had someone to back up my story.

      I had just watched a sad movie about a boy losing his mother. It made me sad to know that a loss of a loved one is almost unbearable so I said God help me for I have a sadness that never leaves me because of my own mother passing away. I feel asleep. I woke up because my husband was only going out with a friend for a few beers and was not at the hotel room. I still had the TV on. I was sitting up in bed. I saw a round globe light it was the size of a med. sized grapefruit. It looked like a ball full of electrical energy. It went from the left side of the top of the TV then stayed right in the center. It stayed for about a minute. Then it sparked out. It was so beautiful. It didn't scare me. I was just confused. Was it light from out side? Was the TV going to bow up? Was the wall going to have black burned streaks? No none of those things happened. All I know is that I saw some thing drop into the room.

A ball of light the size of my fist zoomed by across the outside of the big sliding glass door. It lit up like a lightening bug, but was huge. It scared me, and I cried and slept with my parents. No one believes me to this day.

      I saw an off white Orb of light about 13 years ago while I was fishing in a very quiet very dark area in Thomaston, CT. at a reservoir.

      I was all alone and for some reason I looked behind myself and at the top of a very steep hill not far from the dam and pumping stations for the reservoir I saw this off white orb of light approximately 2 feet in diameter and about 2 feet off the ground, almost as soon as I saw it it slowly started to move down the hill towards where I was fishing it never picked up speed or slowed down it just keep moving about 2 miles an hour.

      As the Orb got close to the bottom of the hill I kept getting more and more nervous because I was cornered, as the Orb got to the bottom of the hill about 30 feet away it turned straight towards me that's when I lost my shit I dropped my expensive fishing poll and ran through the river falling down twice and down the street at full speed to my car soaking wet I never looking back till I got to my car I couldn't see the keyhole in the dark so those few seconds felt like minutes I never felt so scared in my life that's the only time I looked over my shoulder but I couldn't see it because I parked my car off the road between 2 bushes, I got into my car and locked the doors as fast as I could I then drove down the road a short distance and turned around and pulled over on to the side of the road to gain my composure then slowly went back to the spot that this all happend put my highbeams on and ran to get my fishing poll. I never seen the Orb again I also never went back to that fishing spot again after that day.

      I don't know if I was in danger or not that day I always wonderd about that I wish I was brave enough to have stood there and waited to find out what it wanted from me and what the Orb really was the situation may have ended up to be a completely different experience but I may never now.

      I have only told my brother about this because I felt like a wuss but I'm still alive so way the odds right.

      Not by my naked eye did I see this. Yes, I have seen so many orbs and being a Universal Empath m only concern is any openings I have in my home and not to let those not of the light travel through. I got a canary and on two occasions, I did not see with my naked eye and think one was deleted for the canary wants me to join and pay monthly bill. But I did bookmark one. A huge white light came through my window and I have 3 large. I had no clue of this until I watched my phone. It was so bright it seemed like even could be some sort of ship. It did touch me and I noticed on my hair sparkles too. It almost looked like it snapped a picture. An orb, I ? I am an Universal Empath so to see things is norm for me. I do not run to Air Force with anything. To me it is part of our unknown universe. This though and the other electric things caught on this small security camera somewhat took me back. Orbs are one thing, but this was so enormous I questioned maybe the sunlight? Other sort of electric things have been caught too. This is new for me. Yes, I do believe in other energies and entities. For us to think we are the only living things here in the never ending universe. Me, I believe also us humans sometimes are the rudest creation at times. I feel canines have it made. I do get weary of our planet being destroyed because of our ignorance. I have never gone public on this and with my gifts have never even got one coin for my help. Now I am getting so frightened that future generations will be mossed because of our personal greed. Humans have become so full of greed and could care less their neighbor is starvinging. I am so upset that greed and money is destroying our country. Please do not put this through any public authority especially of our government. Yes, I know there are multi dimensions also. Why , me, why I have no clue. I indeed have no clue of why it has entered my domain. Yes, I am very Leary of what I hear and am careful of what I hear. So many mimics and liars. Me on OBE. I was born with that ability genetically. I have no choice if I go I for some reason since 2 years just do. I do believe us, the supposedly brains of this planet has to waken up before it is too late. Thank you Golden

      May 20, 2017 my youngest daughter driving, myself in passenger seat, along with oldest daughter in the back seat of the car. A yellowish, gold colored ball hovered in front of the car. It made a loud noise and disappeared. I felt as if I were struck in middle of my chest, to the right side of my body. My younger child said her fingers tingled and oldest child said, her fingers tingled and went numb. This was Kalamazoo, Michigan near Kalamazoo River on Riverview Drive before midnight, then it began to rain. The size of this ball was almost wide as her Toyota Corolla, the car is not that big, however, the unknown object freaked us out.

      I saw a solid white ball of light the size of between a volleyball and basketball appear about 2 feet down from the ceiling in our family room, proceed to descend about 3 feet then disappear for the remainder of the descent about 3 feet from the floor. It was like it was passing through from another dimension and wasn't traveling particularly fast. The light was self contained. For years ( this occurred in either 2002 or 2003 in the Fall) I thought it was supernatural and wasn't too surprised that it occurred, as I have experienced several supernatural events in my life. However, I had been reading more about the possibility that this solid orb could be extrateresstrial and Ohio has frequent UFO sightings, but I still think it's odd that it appeared inside my house if it was extrateresstrial.

      I was out with my friend on a dark road and noticed 3 multi colored lights in a horizontal pattern. Thinking it was equipment on an electrical/phone pole. I happened to be relieving my self on this dark road believing noone would be watching because of the desolate area. I strained my eyes wanting to see the pole the lights/equipment were attached to, but to no success. Possibly because of the unusual darkness in that area. I hadnt noticed these lights until i was all ready urinating, but quickly got scared and cut it short and asked my friend if she had noticed those lights. Unclear to when she noticed them, she was not happy being there in such a darkness and seeing those lights so close not knowing the cause for them to be there and no way they could be just floatng in mid air silently. No helicopter sound. No way it was jet. Not a warning light for low flying aircraft. To my knowledge i never found that road ever again and was reluctant to want to go back at night. There was no other sound other than our voices.

      Last week when I was sleeping at my girlfriends house, I woke up all of a sudden at like 2 or 3 AM and sat up for some reason and I looked over because something was bright but the tv and laptop were off and I woke up more and realized I was looking at some kind of orb. It had a defined ring around the edge like a halo but it was filled in with light too. It was a bluish whitish light and the orb was maybe the size of a cantaloupe and floating about 10-15 feet from me in the room in front of the dresser and TV about 3-4 feet from the ground. It was like pulsating glowing but stationary, I stared for a minute didn't understand laid back down, couldn't make sense of it so I sat back up and stared at it for another minute. Her house is already definitely haunted that we know so I just stopped trying to think of it and went to sleep. The other day she experienced the same thing in the middle of the night and saw the exact same orb, she remembered what I had said and went back to sleep too.

      I have seen a ball of light twice in my life.

      Once when I was about 10, playing ball with my 11 year old sister in our yard in the middle of the day, we both saw a small ball of light, one near her and one near me. They just sort of floated beside each of us. They were very bright and about the size of a baseball. We asked each other if we were seeing the same thing. We weren't afraid but kind of wondered and they disappeared.

      The other time I was about 40 years old, leaving work about 11:30 at night and saw a ball of dense bright white light about the size of a basketball. As soon as I opened the door to leave the building, this ball of light was right beside me. As I walked down the stairs, it floated right beside me and as I walked to my car, it never left my side. I turned back to see if the security guard was watching me leave and to see if he could see it too, but I was almost afraid to check in case the light left me. I was fascinated by it. I couldn't see the guard so I just kept going to my car. The light followed me almost to my car and was gone as quick as it came.

      The experience only lasted perhaps 2 minutes but has stayed with me. I somehow felt connected to this light. It was like there was some intelligence to it.

      I had a similar experience when I was thirteen years old. I shared a bedroom with my sister. She slept under the window. I was across the room. For some reason I woke up and was staring out the window. All of a sudden I see a ball of light come down over a tree and stop at the curtains edge. My heart was beating like crazy. I lifted my head and it would go up behind the curtain. When I laid back down it was still there. It was about the size of a soft ball. And very bright. I was too scared to wake my sister. Finally I ran out to my parents room. As I looked back out another window. I saw it was gone. I always felt it was a visit from either God or an Angel.

      Just seen one of these orbs of light in my garden! I was leaning out of my kitchen window....all lights off. When , whoosh a low flying bright white light flew straight past me...hovered around my neighbours tree and flew off. It was about the size of a tennis ball or just a bit larger. The garden is in pitch black as is all around with lights off in all the houses. Weird feeling as it flew off very fast across after doing a circle of the tree it went on its way. I must admit I did close the window slightly after though. I live in London and do not imagine things, it was there so will keep you updated for it again. Shame my son is not in the country he loved the x Files and always tried to tell us that we are not alone. I just wish it would bring some money with it next

      The way you described the blinking of the light, its word for word EXACTLY what I saw on my visit to Pakistan to see my family. They live in a remote village where there isn't anyone for miles. Until this day they don't completely believe me. The light was spherelike and extremely blight, strangely enough without a glare and it was travelling in a perfect straight line. As it was travelling it would shrink to the point it would be completely gone, then reappear still moving in its same direction almost pulsing like this till I lost track of it. At first I convinced myself I was seeing things, it was really hot and I smoked some weed before sleeping that night, but after seeing it two more times I was damn convinced whatever it was it had a BRAIN.

      The reason I say it had intelligence was because the first time I saw it it wasn't moving in a straight line, it curved around the balcony and went off into the distance. This, first time it wasn't completely dark, it was around dawn and again it moved with the some pulsing sort of manner. What the hell was that thing? and why do they only seem to appear around the most remote places?

      This happened 10 years ago when I was 20. I had been dealing with the peak of my PTSD issues, and on one of the worst, lowest days I ever had during that stint, I saw a huge ball of white, glowing light about 12 feet in front of my bed in my studio apartment, hours after going to bed that night. I remember having come out of a deep sleep, sitting straight up in bed, but with my eyes still closed, almost having transparent eyelids, and still in a trance, I saw the white orb. As soon as it knew that I had noticed and received what was going on, it quickly moved to the right towards my kitchen in a rigid, linear, straight line, which hovered at eye level above my floor. I reached out for it with my right hand, completely without fear, and it flew towards me and past my head out of the window behind me. I remember flopping my body back into my bed with force and falling asleep immediately. When I woke in the morning, I immediately rememberd everything that had happened just hours prior. I thought it was an out of body experience or my guardian angel visiting because of my extremely depressed state of mind earlier that day. I still don't know what happened or what it was. But there's one more thing--from there on after, I had woken up with what seemed like strategically placed bruises on my body. I once had thumb print sized bruises, symmetrically positioned on the inner sides of my breasts, towards the chest plate, not the armpit. I literally went to bed without them and woke with the bruises. This story, this experience, still haunts me today. --B.

      I have had many orb light experiences. I live in Tucson city limits. Just recently one flew past me at at fast speed while sleeping that woke me up. It was white and the largest one. It could have been 6 to 12 inches. In 2014 had a white orb and an electric blue orb enter my field. They hovered 2 feet above me while I was sleeping. I viewed them from my spirit body. The blue one slipped into me through my throat and has stayed as far as I know. I look at myself as an alien host so to speak. A place where they can observe our behaviors.

      I have heard of orbs for years, but have never believed in them until just recently. A few weeks ago, about the beginning of June, 2017, I happened to notice a round ball of light dashing all over my bedroom. The following night, the same thing, only larger. Now it appears about every half hour, and some nights it is about every two minutes.

      I have a video camera aiming on my bed in my bedroom where my cat often sleeps, so I can monitor her when I'm in the other room at my desk. About two weeks ago I decided to record the monitor with my video camera, and I got it on video. This video is very clear and very bizarre.

      I have a friend who jokingly asked what I was smoking. A few days later I showed him the video and he was speechless.

      I just signed up on this website about 45 minutes ago, so I do not have the video posted as yet. I'm not even sure if I can place videos on this site. If not, I will upload it to YouTube and post the URL here. Believe me, it's very interesting.

      I have only 2 experiences in my life with something i can not explain. The one that applies here is sommething you said in the description. That it seemed to be in a loop or replay.

      To make a very long story short...

      I am with 5 relatives. We are in a yard at dusk of our Aunt Eva. Across the street is a 4 story turreted classic scary turn of the 20th century mansion like haunted house. So. As we all talk im looking at a giant centered 2nd story window covered 24/7 by a heavy multi layered lace curtain. Suddenly for the first and last time they opened. The place was owned but abandoned and it wasnt a person per se opening it. In between the opened curtain as if you had grabbed the edges one in each hand opened them to look outside. Then closed them, it was just whiteness. Only 20' away looking up at it was just a vague glowing whiteness repeating this action OVER AND OVER AND OVER. We all watched, literallly transfixed to it for over 45 minutes until it ended as suddenly as it began.

      Hi all. I think about my experience often, as I have shared it with others over the years but I feel as though no one believes me. My family and I were camping in our new camper in a state park right outside of Virginia. We had visited Arlington National Cemetery that day, and I had taken hundreds of photos of tombstones, reflecting on those who gave their lives for our country and freedom. We went home to the camper for dinner and my little brother and I stayed up talking around the fire exchanging stories. When it got late, and the fire had almost extinguished itself we went to bed. If you have any experience sleeping in a camper, you know that the beds are small. It was very hot outside that night and as I lay there in the air conditioned camper trying to relax and drift off, I saw what I attributed to headlights of a car passing by. I stared at the window (blinds closed), waiting for the lights to pass... but they didn't. I stared at the window frozen as a white orb came straight through the window straight towards me and hovered in front of my face for a second, and then flew underneath my bed into a storage compartment and disappeared.

      I was not scared. I immediately wanted to figure out what I had seen but couldn't figure it out. I flashed a flashlight (knowing deep down I wouldn't see anything) under my bed to look for something...anything to explain what I saw. I woke my parents up and told them, they didn't believe me. I went to bed that night feeling unafraid but anxious, sort of like I had seen something that opened my eyes for the first time to the unexplainable. I hope I see one again.

      I am watching the same exact thing right now. A ball of light just in the sky. It was 2 Am. And it was a ball of light that got bright and added away after a couple seconds. It comes back. It's 4:40 and I'm still watching it. But I'm in the middle of my city fort Collins Colorado. It's crazy.

      I was out on my front deck in Ky on a humid summer night.

      My wife (at the time) came out to talk.

      I saw what I thought was a satellite streaming across the atmosphere.

      As soon as I ask my wife if she knew what that was it started falling. I thought wow! A shooting star. But then it kept streaming straight to us. We were about to jump off the deck thinking a meteor was heading for us. Then it stopped. Immediately stopped. About 30 feet above us. We both stood there transfixed on this glowing orb. After about 10 seconds, it shot back up to its original orbit. Mind blowing for sure. Seemed more spiritual than technological. To stop so exact. Then to return within a blink of your eye. Thousands of feet above.

      It's haunted me ever since.

      I a glowing ball of light over 20 years ago in my parents back yard. I remember it was just after the sun went down. I was walking towards the back yard and then I suddenly saw it and was startled. It also seemed to just notice I was there and turned towards me. Feeling very frightened I ran away back to the house. In my experience it was about the size of a beach ball very bright but self contained not like a normal light source. Several things happened to me while living at my parents house growing up. Once I woke up paralyzed and inches from the ceiling in my bedroom as I was levitating above my bed the next thing I knew It was morning but I knew It wasn't a dream. Another time my parents went on vacation and I had a friend over. We were sitting on top of the roof playing music very loud. I remember my friend had a rare CD collection of music not sold in stores. For some reason I think it was Rage against the machine or at least music that was similar. At the end of the disk like a hidden track there were strange synthesized whale songs like a humpback whale or something weird. When that music played after the long silence typical of hidden tracks we were sitting up on the roof looking up at the stars and then we saw many ufo's. There would be one red glowing one that would go high in the sky then it appeared to break up into many craft that moved very fast and in zig zag fashion. At times they would all go into a collision course with each other to form just one or two. This went on the entire time the hidden track played and then they all just disappeared. When I was very young my parents used to find me sleep walking in the house and unresponsive to them. It is my belief that all of this is related to aliens. I am wondering if hypnosis could bring out more but have no idea where to go or who to call.

      The balls of light are actually spirts. Yes, I know you say that this comment is going to be all fake. Well it's not. I've talked to many of my friends who see things like me. They are the only mution the a spirt can form to be able to be seen on earth.

      Hi, I was very young, no more than twelve, and with a friend a few years older. We were nattering by the kitchen window, at night, when a distant light caught our attention. At first, we thought it was the light of an aircraft but it moved strangely. We watched the round white ball of light about the size of a golf ball with curiosity until we realised it was only a few feet from the window, in a sudden panic, we both backed away from the window. It remained motionless until suddenly disappearing over the roof. We ran into the front room to see where it had gone - but there was no sign, it just vanished after zipping off. I've never experienced anything like it since. We were in a built-up area, London, not secluded at all. On the third floor of a converted terraced house.

      Yes I have experienced the white ball of light. It was around 3:00am . I couldn't sleep so I went out in my yard to walk and take in fresh air. After about 1 hour I was sitting just looking at the stars and there it is around 15 to 20 feet above me 30 feet out traveling towards me and like you I was not afraid. The difference was it looked to be on fire but it was white light. I could see flames but it was only white. I also did research. I read about lighting balls but no clouds just clear sky's and stars. It was traveling south to north. I watched it around 1 minute it was moving slow and it disappeared. No sound nothing. As I sat wondering what it was a large camouflage military plane flew over just above tree tops now that scared me. That was the one and only time I saw the ball of light. Friends think I am nuts. That's ok I know what I saw. Thank you for sharing . I might be nuts but I am not alone☺

      I too have seen this ball of light. I was sleeping in my living room and woke up to a ball of light floating away from me. I could not believe it so I stayed still and just watched it. it went over my wall that separates my living room from my kitchen then down. I was not scared, but thinking I was dreaming. I was not dreaming, I was wide awake.

      Me and my younger sister just seen one of those orbs the other night. We were on our way home and it was right before sunrise. We were looking at the lake and stopped to take a picture. It was so beautiful the pink and blue. As I was taking pictures I noticed a bright light above the lake. After we seen it we both got a funny feeling. We got back in the car and started driving home. By now we were both scared because this happened to us before, a couple years ago but in a different place. We got down the road and I didn't want to look behind us. Well I had to look and there it was right behind us following us. Tears started coming down my face and my sister looked in the rearview mirror and started to get really scared. I told her not to look at it. I told myself not to panick or be scared of it and tried to not look back. We were both silent for most of the way home. I looked back again after we had went on some turns and got far from the lake figuring well its not gonna be there but of course it was. I would get really scared when I looked at it but I still recorded it. It followed us all the way to the town I live in. I don't know what it was but for me it was a very scary experience.

      My Experience with it was when I was 12 Years old it was a semi warm night and I was out walking my dog when all of a sudden something caught my eye it was a ball of light just above a tree in our backyard it had a trail about five feet long a it just sat there I felt like I should yell to get my parents but I don't I watch as the orb for about five to seven seconds as it was floating in the air then it jerked up and flew off leaving a mesmerizing trail of particles and then the trail faded and I went to tell my mom what I saw and of course she said I saw a shooting star or a airplane so the only people who saw it was me and my dog who was she saw it she just sat down and looked at it and she would bark at anything so I don't know what I saw but it was not from this world.

      My son and I was sitting in the living room when we both saw a very bright light about 6" from the ceiling with the size of about a 1' long and8" wide. It lasted for about 5 seconds. I looked at my son and asked him if he saw that and he said I was f-in looking right at it. We talked and agreed that we saw the same things. I saw this happen again a few nights later, but on a smaller scale. There was no way any lights could have made this bright light since it was in a dark location with no windows near. I also saw small orbs a few days later float over my head in the same living room. Neither my son or I were scared it was a coming experience.

      My experience with an orb of light is kinda different. I was up late at night in the living room standing in the kitchen, my parents were asleep so it was pretty late, i heard a strange ringing sound and looked at the tv to see a white orb about the size of a basketball moving slowly across the tv for about 5 seconds before disappearing. Im telling this experience in hopes that someone will be able to tell me what i saw

      I have been seeing these same lights every night for the past two weeks. It's almost on point when they will come out and they follow me. I have told and shown multiple other people and have great!!! videos and screenshots of some amazing stuff. If I stay still they start to get extremely close, easily within 3-400 yards! People say I sound crazy until I show them the videos and pictures I have to prove it!Does anyone have an idea as to what this might be and why they would be getting so close every night? It started with just one and now there is average 3 (last night AT LEAST SIX) and I'm not over exaggerating even though I sound crazy!I hope someone has some idea to what this might be! They get closer and bright and are getting less standoffish Let me know anything please!

      I have not witnessed such a sighting myself, but my brother, whom is very close to me and would never lie to me, has seen a sighting close to your description twice. Once about two years ago in the summer and agian last year in the summer. In both of his experiences he was lieing on top of the roof at night when an orb of white light appeared above the fields. This orb of light would move slowly all around the fields just feet from the ground. It would vanish in thin air several minutes later. He said it was not a scary experience, but once the orb vanished would go right inside the house.

      Just the other day my wife and I threw a bday party for our 1 yr old niece. We live in West Central mn on a farm. It is very rural to say the least. It was about 8 or 9 in the evening and I went outside to smoke. I looked up next to my house and there was a very intense white ball of light. I knew it wasn't the moon just by looking at it. This orb was climbing straight up very fast. I went in the house and got some of the people to come check it out. Their first reaction was to try to say it was the moon but as they watched it we all knew it was not. It stayed in sight for 10 min roughly and then was gone. There was no noise from it. People from the birthday party actually left. This is not the first time I seen it. I seen it about a month ago hovering above one of my neighbor's fields. That time I got my wife to look at it . After a min or so it raised up in elevation and flew directly overhead above our house. Again there was no sound. Don't know what I'm seeing but they seem almost intelligent.

      I wish I could post a picture I have of my dog shortly before she passed away. There's a very bright white ball above her root chakra (tail) just like the light above. My feeling was that it was peaceful and protective energy. I felt that light was protecting our emotions / protecting our spirits.
