Bright White Orb of Light

Backstory

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.

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.

The Ball of Light

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.

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.

The After Story

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.

More Questions Than Answers

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.

Have You Experienced This?

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.

Questions & Answers

  • The light or orb I saw tonight is similar to the ones I have seen many times before. It will look like a star but when you look a little harder you can tell it's just above the trees and it doesn't move with the other stars. Did yours move above the trees?

    Mine was above the trees but looked absolutely nothing like a star. It had a different type of light to a star, it moved around, and there was a sense that it was an intelligent being. So no, the orbs don't look like stars to me, but the one I saw was at treetop level. There are so many different types, who knows!

  • One day I was in my room and four bright orbs started to circle around me really fast then disappeared. What do you think that was about?

    Maybe they were curious about you.. lots of people describe similar close contact. Almost like they're assessing us on some deep level, at least that's what it felt like to me. At the same time, it was a positive experience for me. Just kind of confusing as to what that was all about.

  • I am from Minnesota. A white orb the size of a basketball came into my dark bedroom from my door, and I watched it slowly travel across my room in a straight line and go through the wall below the window. I was shocked to see this. It's like it was just strolling through my room casually. I blinked about ten times to make sure I wasn't seeing things. It was crazy. This happened two to three weeks ago. Do you know any more about these?

    What I've learned is that everyone's experience is wildly different, and the only similarity between them is 1) there's an orb of some size or color, and 2) for the most part, people feel peaceful around them. But it seems that the orbs come in all types, sizes, and colors, with some alone and some in groups. People see them outside, inside, sometimes once, sometimes all the time.

  • I saw an orb of white light go past my windshield last. About the size of a small basketball. Any thoughts on this? I personally was scared out of my wits.

    Sizes seem to range from golf ball size up to a large basketball size. It's interesting to see how wildly different everyone's experiences are.

  • I used to live in Crete. One night, I opened the back door and stepped into the yard and was face to "face" with a basketball-sized orb. It was just silently suspended between me and a tree, which wasn't even 12 feet away. It didn't move at first. Then it slowly got smaller and smaller until it was gone. I stood there in shock for a moment before telling my family what I saw. Of course, no one believed me. I was stunned but by no means did it make me feel afraid. Was it a spirit or UFO?

    That's a large orb! After many years, I still have no idea what these orbs of light are. But most people, like you and me, didn't feel fear or anything, just peace. Maybe they're beings of light who are curious about us or trying to help us.

      Back in the mid 90's, my husband and I were traveling the highway between Denton and Lewistown, Montana, at around 10pm. We were the only vehicle on the road at the time and the surrounding area dark and peaceful, devoid of any kind of lights. Suddenly, I saw a tennis ball sized orb, bright white, traveling just barely ahead of our truck on the left side of the windshield. I was in the passenger seat and could clearly see it. My husband who was driving could not as it was behind the door jamb in his field of view but when I pointed and he leaned to the right toward me and looked out to the left, he too saw it. We continued at the same rate of speed and it stayed with us for probably a total of 20 seconds. It didn't slow down or speed up... it just was going along with us the whole time without moving up, down, left or right. Both of us have later said that it seemed "intelligent", that it felt as though it was "looking at us". Just as quickly as it appeared, it disappeared and that was it. We both wish another one would come to visit us, the experience was truly awesome.

      Sorry just to add to my initial comment. Everytime it moves, it seems to disappear and reappear in a different place not far from its previous spot. Very small white orbs. One time it landed about 6 feet away from me while i was in my backyard. It was about 11pm at night. Small white orb came vertically straight down from the sky. It was blinking the whole time during the decend. I thought i was seeing things until i saw it flicker once more in the grass. Out of fear i ran inside and turned on the backyard light. That seemed to startle it, because it immediately lifted up, i ran out to follow it and flew into my neighbors yard over the fence. That was my first encounter over a year ago. Ever since then, i have been seeing the orbs on and off. Never feel threatened, thought i was going crazy, glad too see someone else is seeing them too. What are they lol? Look like moving stars. Maybe someday we will find out...Hopefully

      My sister and I saw an orb of light in 1996 in rural France. We were on a caravan holiday with our parents. As we were bored, my sister and I decided to go for a walk. It was on our way back, at about a mile from the campsite, when we encountered an orb floating in the middle of the road about 10 feet behind us, and at about eye level. It was perfectly round, about the size of a football. We could also tell that it was not flat, but spherical. It was dusk, but light enough to tell that that it was a floating entity. Suddenly, it went very dark and we called out at it and at which point it decided to give chase. We ran as fast as we could and it kept an equal distance to us. Every so often we would turn around and call again to it (as frightened teenagers would). Each time it would stop and hover. When we reached the campsite it stopped at the gate and after about a minute the light just flickered out. The most worrying thing if that we realised that we had lost about 2 hours in time. To this day I cannot explain what had happened our where those missing hours had gone.

      I'm in Southern California. This year i began seeing my 5 "shadows" (possibly 6 since one has twouggrs which seem attached) and frequently as I drive around since i call them my entourage. Each I've given a name as their lights after studying them have a different glow and colors, sometimes all 5 or a combination thereof hang outside the house or travel with me in my car. I began see clearly their movements during the day. Yes, without their light as as strange as it seems to you i can see the thicker air movement during the day. Anyway, i am unsure why i am being followed and what i need to know or why i am seeing them and other larger things but its good to know that they appear and are seen by others here. I have video, pictures and others' visual verification i haven't lost my marbles.

      About 7 years ago me and my wife were laying in bed and a really bright light was coming into the window and I thought the cops were outside fixing to knock the door off but I realized that couldn't be because I had four vehicles in front of the front door and the light got so bright in my living room but it didn't come into my bedroom the light stopped at the door it was so bright it you couldn't even see the kitchen and the next thing you know a ball of light appeared almost glass like you it was so white so confined into that ball that it floated to the middle of the living room and slowly got smaller and disappeared don't know what it was but I was visited by it and when I was younger I also seen something that lets me know something big is out there that's all thanks bye

      I had a white ball of light come at me in my room and smack me in the face which scared and startled me as I saw the light when I was trying to fall asleep. As I was opening my eyes from this “light” I felt the light was coming at me at a high rate of speed and literally felt like it hit me in the face, which jolted my body and then poof it was gone! I literally felt like I got hit by a ball of light! I just laid in bed wondering what on earth just happened and haven’t been able to get it out of my mind so just did an internet search and found this page...I’m perplexed to say the least.

      I just want to share an experience with you and hoping if you maybe could shed light on it. I would greatly appreciate it if you could spare a minute. I just had a recent experience with a golden orb that I saw about late last year. I was on my way to my night shift work at the hospital. It just came out of nowhere right outside the building. The size was just like that of a basketball. The color is bright yellow gold with a reddish/orange outline. My initial thought was that it is conscious and pulsating. The strangest thing is that I was really focusing on it intently and when I took my eyes off it just for a second and when I look at it again it had substantially grown its size and changed to an egg shape. It was right in front of me.

      I remember that two of my colleagues were also coming out of the building, and they did not seem to notice it. The weirdest thing of it all is that it was a benign feeling the whole time. For some reason, I just had a strange feeling of familiarity with it. It was more like of excitement and honored to have seen it up close like couple of meters in front of me. I felt like it was telling me you know Hey, we heard you, and we are here, watching. You know sometimes I do call out there for good people when I'm feeling bad on some things, and I'm asking for their guidance and help. I wanted to engage on it like communicate to it somehow, but I was really running late for work. I thought that too bad you showed up now. I have to go to work. The moment I said that in my head the dark clouds behind it opened up and I can see the clear night skies with the stars behind that light or orb and then the dark clouds slowly covered it. Some part of me wants to see it again, but at the same time, I am a bit apprehensive though.

      I have been trying to find someone who had a similar encounter as I did and this is the closest I have come to finding that.

      When I was about 6 I was walking with my mom down a sidewalk of a sports complex.. it was just me and her no one else around. I remember looking up at one of the light poles and I saw 3 or 4 white orbs of light flying in a circle around that light pole it almost looked like they had wings . I will never forget that moment. I called my mom lastnight and asked if she remembered seeing that and she didn’t know what I was talking about. In that moment I know I was not scared but in awe of what I was seeing. The next encounter I had with the orb of white light was in the 6th grade. I was at my friends birthday party and all the kids decided to play hide and seek in this big field in his backyard. I remember running through that field with a couple other kids and all the sudden the same white being flew over my head and that same feeling of awe flooded my mind I knew that it was the same thing I had seen when I was 6 above that light pole

      But for some reason I don’t remember anyone else talking about it or saying they saw that too..

      but I will never forget what I saw

      Like it was yesterday.

      For several years I've been dog walking quite late at night. Three four times a week I have seen what I would call a UFO a large giant ball shaped object glowing in different colours. Well got up during early morning 23rd August 2019 it was hovering in the night sky it was glowing but not really bright. The time was 4.43 at 4.45 it glowed bright and disappeared up in the sky no engine noise. The next morning checked my cctv cameras and three times between 5.00 and 5.30 a football size orb appears three times.came down seems to land in front garden then take of again.

      I installed a “ring” doorbell camera. Recently, when reviewing the events, I came across a fast erratically moving light bar....that when enlarged had a green, red and blue orb in it. It moved crazily around our trees in front of our house. I showed it to my wife and she said it looked like a prism and it must be reflecting off of something. Since the ring camera was new, I didn’t save the event and my free 30 day trial ended and I lost the footage. But that’s not the last time it happened.... the camera picked up movement at 10:18 pm on 8/19/2019 and it freaked my family out. A row three glowing white orbs was moving erratically through the trees and then emits a light or laser at the ground and looks like it’s constantly searching for something. We think it’s a probe or something but really have no idea. It is very very strange and we want to know why it’s there and what it is doing and does it return to some place. It’s pretty scary but again it’s our doorbell camera picking it up. I know this is not what you saw, but this probe is strange and we need answers.

      Yes , it happened to me. After seeing the lights I was so static I could hardly switch on the lights for a long matter of time I was scared to turn on the lights to touch the sockets or anything. Sometimes I saw the electric flash when I touched things.It lasted quite a long time like months and months.

      After seeing an orb up close about 3 weeks ago, I now see them in the sky all the time. Just look past the clouds or the blue. There are thousands of them. Night or day. They come in with a flash and can leave a trail sometimes when they decend.

It’s perfectly round and had the most beautiful lights of blue, white, and red. Glowing and it started floating and then disappeared! It was the most beautiful thing i had ever seen. This for some reason brought me joy! I felt happiness!

      Literally about 10 minutes ago, i was watching tv and i saw a bright light out the window in the corner of my eye, and when i turned to look at it i saw an circular shaped light moving across the sky, it was only there for an instant as i looked at it before it disappeared, and when it disappeared it looked sort of like how the old tvs would look when they turn off, like the light moves in towards the center before disappearing completely. Its hard to tell how high up it was in the sky due to the short time it was there, but looked to be quite high up and about a third of the size that the moon is in the night sky. When it disappeared i blinked and then rushed over to the window to see if i could see anything, but everything was normal. I have no answer for what it could have been.

      It was a clear day in the afternoon and I was talking to 2 of my friends just outside his front gate, this white bright ball of light about the size of a tennis ball flew fast from just behind me and it stopped in front of us all and like hovered for maybe 2 seconds, it’s like it stopped to look at us then it shot off fast heading down the street and disappeared. Me and my friends just stood there and looked at each other just gob smacked and we said to each other “did you just see that?”

      That was maybe 13 years ago now and I haven’t seen anything like that again so far. But the thing is we all witnessed it. It came that close so fast that I moved my head and it made me jump. I live in the uk.

      I have experienced seeing white light like neon light, about 3 to 4 cm in diameter. Let me tell you the history before that moment. In 2012, I worked for a plantation company as a field supervisor. At that time, the company's land was in the new process of planting oil palm a year after planting, and the height of its shoots was about 3 meters from the ground surface. less than a month before that moment, I used a spring that came out from under the manger of the hill, I invited my men to be one person. I installed pipes and small dams and the floor was for a bathroom for others. at 18:45 excavation and containment were completed. suddenly my nose smelled the fragrance like branded perfume. then, one day at around 13:00 I washed my clothes, at first glance it looked like a long cloth with a brown batik motif crossing behind me. after that, I felt a hidden curiosity. I try to take frequent showers at night, 21:00, or 23:00. one night I was surprised, when walking almost to the place of the spring, I looked back, there was a round white light. At first I thought it was a firefly, but it was too big and didn't flicker, I put my soap container, then turned toward the light, I intended to touch it, initially about 4 or 6 meters behind me, hovering as high as my head . after approaching it as far as 2 meters, the light was actually slowly moving away. then disappear or extinguish at the tops of oil palm leaves about 3 meters from the ground. Until now, I did not understand what the meaning of the incident was, and what the light was. Can anyone help me to find out the meaning of the incident? What is the impact on my personality and life?

      I remember seeing this same post some years ago somewhere else. Must have been you just as intrigued as you and I still are. I will try to make my experience short. :) You would think in this day and age with new technology etc there would be studies and evidence on this matter by now but still nothing except people with stories. That's better than nothing I suppose! I've come to the realization that I may never find out or truly know what these balls of light are. I will never stop searching for answers though! Here's my story:

      I have had two experiences with bright white balls of light. I wish I could have witnessed it out in nature like yours, but mine were in the bedroom very early in the morning (3 - 5 am) both times.

      Both times they were peaceful and just sat there and flashed in a sort of sequence to me. I was 8 the first time. So this was 1999 ish. I am now 30. I stayed the night at my aunt's house and was sleeping on the floor of my cousin's bedroom with the door and window shut. What first woke me up was my grandma banging on the front door. She had arrived late from the casinos to get me but we were all already fast asleep by the time she got there. She always stayed out way past midnight when she went up so I'm guessing 3 - 5 am as usual. Lol.

      I was about to get up and go open up the door but immediately upon taking my head slightly out of the covers, there was this bright flashing lighting up the whole room. It scared me. I knew the bedroom door was closed and this was on the third floor of a high rise apartment building. I could see my cousin's bed from where I was peeking out into the room and my cousin and friend Amy were laying there dead asleep as this light was lighting up their faces and the whole room! I kept hoping someone else would wake up but they never did and my grandma stopped banging on the front door eventually. I was frozen in fear and too scared to look out of the covers so I just layed there, hoping everything would go okay.

      I started to get unconfortable in the position I was in, all the while this light is still flashing in a sequence and lighting up the whole room. I decided to turn anyway, although hesitant and point my body away from this source of light. I kept looking at the other side of the room, watching everything light up in this white bright light. This source of light was coming from the corner of the room right in front of the bedroom door from what I could see. This went on for a good hour or two. I never peeked out and eventually forced myself back to sleep. I never told anyone because I knew I wouldn't be believed.

      Fast forward to age 15. 2006 ish. I felt uneasy that night. Like something was watching me but nothing there. I was waiting on my friend Brandon to call me and we were going to go out that night and do kid things. It was midnight and I was getting tired and still no call. Since I felt uneasy, now living in a house, I went downstairs into my aunt's room. I always felt safer with the dogs when I would get those feelings. She kept the whole house pitch black and blinds drawn. I layed down on the huge and unbelievably comfy dog bed with the dog lol. I cuddled up next to him and went to sleep.

      I have always slept with my head under the covers since I was little. It makes me feel more secure. I keep a little beathing hole and pass out. Lol. I kept the portable house phone with me in case Brandon called under the blanket with me. I wake up to the phone ringing and answer it on the second ring. The time on the phone reads 3 am.

      Brandon apologized and said he passed out and let's hang out tomorrow night. I agreed and hung up with him. I noticed lights coming from outside the blanket now that I hung up the house phone and the light on the screen went off. Flashing again like that night when I was 8. The dog was gone. No barking from both dogs in the house or anything.

      I decided not to be a puss this time and took my head out of the covers. I seen two white bright balls of light. They were possibly golf ball sized maybe a little bigger. They seemed to float in the air about 5 ish feet off the ground. They were right in front of the open bedroom door pretty much. Again, everything is pitch black. No curtains drawn. You have to go down a long hallway before you get to my aunt's room. No windows there at all. Just a laundry and powder room on the way.

      I looked over at her to see if she was awake and she was laying on her side facing these orbs in a dead sleep. Just like my cousin and friend yet again! Lol. They were flashing in a sequence and as they did it would light up the whole room.

      In these days of smart phones with cameras, I like to compare the brightness and flashing to if you take a picture with flash on in the dark. That only comes a little close though. They looked like physical balls of light to me. Not like a projection or etheral like others have seen. I knew then that these orbs were the same exact thing that happened when I was younger. Same light, same flashes.

      I sat there in silence just staring at them and taking it all in. I was scared but intrigued at the same time. After a few minutes, its as if they realized I was awake and stairing at them and they fled out the bedroom door and down the hallway. I got up and walked over to where they had been floating in front of the door and could see their light lighting up the hallway all the way down before they got in to the family room. I didn't hear the dogs bark, and they had to be out there because my aunt kept a baby gate at the front of the stairs to keep them out of the upstairs part of the house. Either that or they were in the back yard, which still, that would be the only way for these orbs to come in and out and the dogs would surely bark then! Still no barking to be heard! So I decided not to give chase.

      I just stood there in disbelief for a few minutes and decided to go back to bed because I was really tired, confused and knew no one would believe me if I woke anyone up. It was just her and I in the house that night as well. No one else was there. My guess is these orbs maybe came in through the doggy door in the dining room? Now, when I was in the apartment some years back? How would it/they have gotten in then? Bedroom door and window was even closed! I didn't feel that they were something to be feared or a threat of any kind at that point, so I fell back asleep pretty easily that second time. Lol.

      I will never forget it. I know I had a sound mind, I had never had hallucinations as a child, and logically speaking there was not a viable source that could explain this! Still remains a mystery to me. All I have is other people's stories such as yours. That makes me believe whatever they are, they are real, non threating and some other kind of life form only some of us get lucky enough to see! I will continue my search for answers though!

      When i was about 9 years old i shared a room with my sister who is a year younger than i. Our mom just put us to bed, so we were still up talking. Out of nowhere an orb appeared. It was flashing multiple colors and was bouncing off of the walls faster than i could follow it. It seemed frantic as if it were trapped in our room. I remember we both screamed, "Mom!!! Mom!!", until she came in, flipped the lights on and was like, "What?!" We screamed at her to hurry, close the lights and shut the door. She thought we were being ridiculous, but we eventually convinced her to do it, but by then it was gone. We told her what we saw and she tried to reason with us that it was probably just the cable box reflecting off something. I remember feeling so angry that she didnt believe us. Im now 30 and remember it like it was yesterday. Neither my sister nor my mom remember this at all.

      I’ve seen 2 white orbs floating slowly towards me in the pitch black night while I was camping out in the hills of northern CA. They were SO bright, I had several witnesses there with me, we thought they were headlights coming from off in the distance. That was until we realized the shape of the land & then they started slowing moving position in ways that no headlights could. We were trying to be rational, but these things were getting closer & I think it was a scary experience for me because of the unknown once everyone realized they weren’t headlights. I stood and watched until they came within about 75-100ft. These orbs were big, I’d say about 3ft in diameter at least. I went inside before they could get any closer because I was getting a little weirded out, but I think about it all the time and wish I could go back and try to make contact. I think they were peaceful, they weren’t doing anything in particular to make me feel scared, it was more a fear of the unknown.

      Hi! On Sunday, July 21. 2019 at around 8pm-9pm when the sun was going down but yet it was still bright outside. Me, my Boyfriend and our baby was hanging out at a park where there was no one around except for us and this was our second time there. As i was sitting on the swing on the right side and my BF was sitting on the left swing holding baby and he was looking my way and i was looking his direction. All a sudden i see tiny white sparkles/clouds coming out of no where right in the middle and appearing not really in front of my bf but a little to his left, it kept on forming and forming and forming then it became its shape. It was floating, long/tall Oval shaped and not too big or skinny, it was medium and probably about 5feet 4inches or maybe even longer, it was shaped perfecting and it was Pure White like the brightest clouds you could see... It was really white and bright and it was 1 solid colour and you couldn't see threw it! I didn't know what it was at first and while all of this was happening my BF didn't even know because he was still staring at my way, so i asked myself what it was then the second time i asked myself in my head what it was then it vanished, disappeared. The whole time i wasn't scared of it.. I was very curious of what was. I felt at peace.. It wasn't scarey... I wonder what it is.. Next time i will let everyone know and look at it, or maybe even come up and touch it? I wonder what could that be? Could it be an Angel? A spirit? My ex fiance passed away 5yrs ago from cancer could it be him too? Before i was a believer about these types of stuff then i became not a believer then back and forth and back and forth.. Then a few months ago i said out loud "i will believe if i see it" then all a sudden now i saw it!!!# lolll now i'm a 100% Believer!!!!!! So the next day i came to work and i saw the number 11:11 oclock(i always see that mumber) i brushed it off because i always see that, then i made $44.40 in tips at work and when i punched out it was 4:44 pm.. Then later i went home and checked it on google and some sites told me that these are Angel numbers!!! So i don't know... Maybe an Angel or spirit is trying to communicate with me?????

      I saw something similar several years ago in eastern Kentucky. To listen to Art Bell on 1100am out of Cleveland we had to drive to a local radio tower site on the highest peak for miles. I was alone listening to C2C when I noticed movement about 20ft to my left. I saw a small ball of light that shone yellowish and bright light. It was about the size of a pen light. My first thought was light bug but the color was way off and it didn't flash but was constant. It was about two feet into a treeline and it illuminated the trees and the ground around it so I could see it wasn't a person etc. I had the window down and once I turned off the radio it was silent. I watched it a few minutes and it floated about 5 ft off the ground from my left to my right and was weaving thru the trees at a very slow pace. After about 5 min it had traveled about 10-15 feet. It gave me a creepy feeling so I just left. Haven't been back since..creepy vibe.

      Hi, first I want to say thank you for creating this page Kate, it has really helped me after a few weeks of seeing these coloured orbs every single night.

      I live in Western Sydney, Australia. My story is a little different but after so much research, the only thing I can relate it to is from some of the stories on this page.

      Ok well about 5 weeks ago I started noticing weird bright lights in the night sky and didn’t think too much about it. Gradually I started really concentrating on the night sky’s and have been amazed with what I see.

      My first thoughts, and were my main thoughts for weeks, were that there was a lot of surveillance work going on. This is because it started out as a few drones patrolling around at first and now there are so many flying around that I can’t even count. However one night, me and my friend decided to spend a night watching them and we counted over 25 in our sights. SO I began researching drone and military surveillance as it had to be some type of authority. Anyway, couldn’t find any concrete evidence, but have heard so many other stories all over the world. Its a touchy subject because people just write you off as a conspirator. So I only told close family and friends. So I spent a few weeks becoming very angry with the government and all the lights in the sky.

      Then I learnt about these orbs which became more apparent. As I stopped gazing at the flying drones, I started looking all around and I was noticing what looked like stars, some had a gold,blue, red, green or even translucent. The only part that throws me off is that I haven’t heard any stories of translucent orbs...

      So I started seeing these every night I stepped outside, it is an eerie feeling like u know they are watching. They follow me no matter where I go and I have worked out that there is always at least one that is in my eye sight. I have played games with them especially before I knew what they were... so I mean before, when I thought that it was also a man made spy drone, I used to hide behind things like trees or buildings and then I would watch and wait until it was in my view again. Sometimes it would beat me tho, because I’d be waiting for it to re-appear but then I’d see a different one that was watching me from somewhere else! Lol! I was seriously thinking WOW how good is the surveillance technology now! Lol. Then I bought a high powered green laser and began going out most nights and pointing them out to people and annoying them. I actually feel bad. Ow I know they weren’t my enemy or anything to do with the government. I remember they would move around like crazy and sometimes disappear or take off or just hide.

      So what I have learnt - I honestly believe that they are some sort of angel,guardian,watcher,protector and something spiritual. I didnt believe in God until about a week ago when it all became clear to me. I am not sure how everyone elses life was at the point when they seen these orbs, but I will honestly tell you that I had become lost and I was really looking for something to pick me back up. I remember about 6 months ago I was speaking with an old school friend and she told me how I should pray and ask god for help. I did this with her, but I didn’t expect anything and pretty sure I did it just to make her happy. I remember a few days after that, I was really down and out and was crying and that’s when I decided to ask God to be in my life. I really meant it this time tho. I also said that I need proof that you have heard my prayers and to show me a sign that you are there.

      So this is where it is now, I believe this is God’s presences in my life. Now that I have accepted them, I feel at peace but I still am really new to this so I’m still scratching my head a lot.

      I’m sorry if this doesn’t sound like there normal behaviour like your experience but ro me they really are orbs of lights which travel in packs sometimes, or stray apart and return. And there presence is always felt.

      Thanks for reading this and hopefully I can hear from others who have experienced this.

      Jus to clear up about the other drones patrolling Sydney. I believe they are from the local military base and 100% the government/military have known about these light orbs and I believe it is getting more and more common so they are just there to keep an eye on what’s going on.

      Anyways thanks, I know there’s a lot of ‘maybes’ there but please believe me when I say that this is real and only a few highlights of the things I have seen

      Hey ...if anyone sees this and has had the exact same experience please reply . If you didn’t don’t reply ... I was 5 at the time . (I’ll make this short) ... I was laying on my bed the moon so I thought was shining through my window , i then saw a ball of light on my wall . I ignored tried to sleep but I’m a couple of minutes woke up to use the bathroom . When I opened my door there was an orb of light floating above my head in front of me . I got scared , ran down my hall , as I kept running , it was as if time slowed down . And my feet became heavier . I kept running , ran around a table as it followed me . Out of no where I felt a peace come over me . I sat by my staircase looked down to see that my basement living room looked entirely different to what I had seen the day before . I even saw my father , who looked a bit older . I began to yell down at him so that he could help . But he never heard me . I couldn’t even hear myself . That frightened me again and I turned around to see the orb right behind me , so I got up and began to run again . That’s where it ends . The rest I don’t remember except for what my mother told me . She found me under the kitchen table twitching and talking to myself . I’ve never been able to forget this . And some night a almost feel the same . But I haven’t seen it since ...

      I just had this type of experience too. On Tuesday night sitting on my front porch I saw what at first I thought was a strobe light. Because I am in a large city.. But then it moved quite differently. It was the size of a Basketball over a house across the street. Then it was gone and another one appeared smaller and to the right. After a few moments one appeared about 10 ft. away from me . This one was fluttering for about 5 min. It was white and looked like a large bug fluttering it's wings wildly. But it was white and to big to be a bug. Then all of a sudden it just dropped onto the grass. When I went to look for it there was nothing there.. I meant to say this was at 10:30pm So it was dark. I used my phone flashlight to see if there was something on the ground..

      Im glad i found your post. Yes I had a similar experience, which is why I looked up this post. It was night time and I was going to work. I was driving and saw a light in the trees, at first I thought i was looking at someones security light, from they're house through the trees but when I got close it darted and disappeared, just like you said, a baseball sized fire fly. I was wierded out a little bit. When I got up the road I saw another light, right beside the road next to an old brick home with the lights off. The security light was on. This light looked exactly the same as the first one. But was almost on the ground, as if it were some riding a bicycle with a light on the front wheel. It croosed the street right in front of me and made off again, just like a fire fly. I am the military, with a background check so you know Im not crazy. Let us all know if you figure this phenomenon out.

      I and a friend went out on the deck at sundown. Was a clear evening. We both was leaning against the deck railing having a beer . Then out of no where a white orb about the size of a soccer ball appears about 30 yards in front of us. Then in spit second it was to the left about 20 yards . Then gone. We looked at each other and said ok what the hell was that.

      I saw one last night (1.07.19). I’m from Australia. I was staying at a friends house in Copacabana, nsw, and the white orb was the size of a large basketball and was hovering above my next door neighbours house (the house I used to live in). As it saw me, it hovered for a little longer and then vanished off towards the oven. (These houses are on a cliff). It felt as though it wasn’t there to harm. It was there to listen. Very unusual experience, and with some form of consciousness.

      I saw some on Friday 28/06/2019 in Cheshire, England.

      Two together, hovering directly above me around 1000ft one flew away quickly and disappeared into thin air then the other followed and did the same.

      I’m not sure I would say it was an orb but from the underside it was shiny and reflective. They made no sound at all when moving.

      I can not explain what I saw

      Last night I witnessed something I can not explain. We just moved to a remote part of MN and I was woken up by the sound of deer snorting outside my window. I researched this and they snort when they sense a predator. The moon was shinning brightly and I suddenly saw a bright white round light about a softball size going strait down our road. It was 4 am and my first thought was maybe someone was taking a bike ride in the dark and it was their bike headlight. It was gliding smoothly and going straight at a moderate speed. Then I sensed it saw me watching it and it stopped. Turned toward the house and the light when out for a second and then I heard the deer snort and the ball of light went at top seep through the meadow in front of our house gliding and going on and off then went out of sight! It wasn’t a person for sure. It wasn’t an animal that I could ever identify that would have one big glowing eye! It was amazing and it was definitely thinking and aware of what it was doing.

      Like everyone else experiencing this phenomenon I was happy to find this,Because I truly believe a majority of these on here are experiencing the same thing just not as extreme...tonight is June 24 2019,All of this started Memorial Day night,We live in stafford Va,My girlfriend and myself are both very educated young adults,And our story sounds absolutely unbelievable but I insure you we are living it.i will add that as I write this that there are orbs in the sky above our place and we feel their presence.we are very terrified and will not drive or be by ourselves at night and also are expecting contact from gov/military any day now...I believe this phenomenon is blossoming and is about to go public,Because you can’t hide it...if your paying attention everyone can see them around here when we point them out...we had numerous videos but deleted them because we were afraid,and at the time thought the phenomenon was getting worse because of it...this all started Memorial Day at about 10 pm my girl and I were fighting and decided to drive to this lake near her house just randomly to talk and patch things up.we were there for about 2 hrs when we started seeing lights over the lake,At first just 3 or 4 they seemed to be about two feet off the waters surface and about 30-40 yards away.we first thought it was people on kayaks with headlamps on their heads.we stared absolutely transfixed.some of them started rising maybe fifteen feet then coming back down,And they would move in closer and then retreat back almost teasing us.some of the orbs would split off into new orbs then come back together...they were approaching closer.by then I was completely certain we were dealing with something amazing.And was absolute terrified,My girl on the other hand was still staring transfixed I was shouting at her telling her to come on we are leaving...as we retreated to the car parked about 50 yards away there was a noise kinda like an animal cackling but no animal I’ve ever heard before from under the dock.The car was already aimed at the lights and when my girl turned on the headlights the orbs reacted and changed colors slightly and began approaching faster,We drove about 1 mile to the stop sign(at like 80 mph)and put the car in park to talk about what we had just experienced and were there for a solid 60 sec.when I looked over my shoulder and right above the three tops was one of the bright yellowish white orbs.we speed off terrified and now on the main road we both noticed that we felt very strange almost like in a twilight zone...after driving a couple miles we heard a loud noise almost like an 18 wheeler getting louder and louder and we both felt an enormous rush come over us,It felt how I imagine mainlining a hard drug would feel...our hearts were pounding out of our chest,Our hair was standing straight up.(her and I both know this was not just adrenaline kicking in)it almost felt euphoric and good and this first night we were amazed but not necessarily scared...but then the noise would fade out...and for the next couple hours we proceeded to just drive around town (at about 12pm to 3am...it felt like we were in another place...almost like we were watching a movie...our vision was so crazy we could see every detail(after this encounter whenever we see/feel the orbs our vision gets impaired and blurred when looking at normal lights)the town was strangely empty that night and bazaar...for example the grass was the wrong colors certain store fronts were wrong colors,,,and when we interacted with people at the two stores we stopped at they behavior was bazaar.we periodically would here the 18 wheeler noise race towards us and feel the euphoria...we eventually went home but could not help noticing that when we touched each other we would feel the same euphoria it was so strong that we ended having sex that night...when thinking back on it seems so strange that we even considered that given the situation...the next day we didn’t wake up until 7 pm witch never happens,even if we stay up that late, our vision and hearing were so intense that next day...could go into some more stuff but I wanna fit most of it on here...then for about up towards a week ago nothing else happened but we were obsessed with finding out what had happened to us,at least we didn’t notice anything until a week ago we were driving to meet my buddy and on a main road heavy populated saw what looked like a star moving quickly we watched as we drived and took a right turn it followed us and we immediately felt it’s presence..that entire night there was orbs in the sky always following us...I downloaded a stargazing app on my phone and they are not stars...could write so much more but want to conclude that for a week now there is one main orb in the sky that follows us everywhere and it has a mind of its own because it will intentionally put itself in gaps in the trees so it’s visible,and we always feel it and our eyes begin to blur...on two of the nights we saw an actual ufo we saw it clear and it was close...on one occasion that makes me tremble to even write about I had fell asleep in my car and was in a deep sleep paralysis and had a vivid terrifying dream of getting abducted by a ufo and was screaming in my sleep and in tears,and when I woke up there were two orbs in the sky over us...it’s amazing how bold they are they actually follow my car through the well populated town...sometimes it gives me migraines,When we separate we experience separate phenomenon...also we always see an alarming amount of fireflys when we have or right before the experiences,Now it’s every day,And when I put my camera on the orbs especially the main one,Green glares pop up all over my screen.and also here lately there is an enormous amount of govt aircraft flying over us,So the government is aware and is investigating...but we do not think they have made the connection that they are following us...no one has spoke with us yet...and I’m afraid to approach them...it’s gotten so bad I’m terrified to drive anywhere alone or to be alone at all...these things are so bold and don’t care who sees them...this is about to be a social epidemic...it’s about to go public that crazy things are happening...these orbs are directly related to ufos although we only seen an actual ufo twice...(seems like orbs draw energy from the main orb)it’s scary because I can feel them and whatever energy they produce is immense and it seems that they thrive off of our emotions...there’s so much more but I wrote all I could write tonight thanks everyone and hopefully we will all be okay after all this

      About 3am this morning me and my friend were driving home from work on the highway when all of a sudden we saw this falling ball of light the size of a baseball maybe, about 20-60 feet away (hard to know exact distance because it was night and i could only judge distance by how fast we were coming up on it, but it was just falling in a straight line downward from about 30 feet high, and when it reached about 5 feet above the car it just vanished, it was falling sort of slow and it was just this white bright light like a star and was very vivid, but no real detail, it did not initially scare us though, it wasn't until after it disappeared that we started freaking out it was quiet for a few seconds and he just said "bruh, tell me you saw that" and i told him that i saw it too, a bunch of "wtf was that" was exchanged and i was scared that it was going to follow us or explode like a nuclear bomb or something" i cannot find a similar experience, please help me find something with maybe more experience but same effect, mine only lasted about 5 seconds so i dont know anything about what happened this morning, still a bit freaked out

      Driving alone through the Nevada desert late at night, I was on hour 8 of a 10 hour trip home from a festival and hadn't seen any other cars or streetlights for hours. Suddenly a single bright light appeared behind my truck 50 meters away. I assumed it was a motorcycle. The light followed me for a half an hour slowly getting closer, but I couldn't make out what the light was attached to. I started feeling uncomfortable. Whatever was behind me was now 10 meters away and very slowly getting closer.

      Eventually I saw some streetlights ahead and thought that I'd finally be able to see the car or motorcycle as we passed under. I was glued to my rearview mirror anticipating solving the mystery but just before the light passed under the streetlight, it took a hard right turn and zipped off into desert. The light following me was some kind of floating orb and it was avoiding being seen.

      I calmed down but before long the orb returned. This time it was really tailing me. I was very afraid now. No cell service and no one else out on the road to help me. It followed me for another 5 minutes and eventually was in the bed of my truck at the back windscreen. I was looking over my shoulder screaming in horror into the bright light which seemed to be studying me. The light shined into the cab of the truck for a few moments, and again zipped off into the desert and didn't return.

      This was the only time I've ever experienced something supernatural that I couldn't explain and years later I am still totally stumped. I've Googled "desert light orbs" and various other things to try to find similar stories but have never and maybe will never understand what happened that night.

      I recently saw a giant orb come out of the sun. It was a bright clear day as I opened the blinds in my Theology classroom. My eyes saw a giant clear orb which came out of the sun and was the same size as the sun. It rested next to the Church. I felt complete peace. I spoke to it saying, “Jesus, is it you and if so, come closer to me?” The orb moved toward me. Students began filing in and looked out the window to see what I was gazing upon but could see nothing. When the bell rang the orb moved to the right of the sun and remained there until I looked away. When I looked back, it was gone. I pray every day for answers. All my life, I have experienced visions in my sleep and can gaze at the sun with no disturbance to my eyes. Deep down in my soul, I know it is a sign that this is how Jesus will come again for His second coming. I pray for God’s blessings to come over you and give you an understanding of the orb you witnessed, for all things are given by His grace. I saw this orb 03/25/19 and I long to see it again.

      It was during summer 2010 in france.

      I was at the end of my street, watching the stars with a friend of mine.

      We are kind of laying on the hood of the car, when we saw an orb of light, like a star, but in motion, following a straight line. We actually saw many that night, but one of them, became much more than a tiny “moving star”.

      It start to glow, and the size change considerably, from a dot of light in the sky to something much bigger, at least ( no exageration, no bs ) a 100times it’s size. It was out of this world, nothing like plane, nothing like a satellite because too low in altitude and completely SILENT. It was unbelievable. For a period of 2 years, those things appeared in the night sky very very frequently, always in connection with my mind set, and it seems to be synchronize with my thoughts and feeling.

      I had many other stories like this ( so many). It happened to me so often...that I got scared. It was almost every night and getting closer. I was reading a lot about spirituality, the meaning of life, God, Ufo, religion, trying to find some answers about life...

      Everytime at night that I was having some deep conversations about life with some kind of a higher perspective , those things were showing up.

      I have to admit, that at some point I stop focusing on it, because I was so scared of it...the energy was never bad or never low...I was just frighten to think that it could be some higher being trying to fool me.

      It was a very bizarre moment of my life, and they do appear from time to time...when I want to see them. But I am still scared to be honest.

      The orbs are definitely archangels or spirits of our loved ones. On Tuesday around 1am I was praying to the spirit of my late husband and the angels. I am going through a rough patch for the last year and I had an urge to communicate with my late partner. In my sadness I cried out to him if his spirit was around then he must please show me a sign without scaring me. I suddenly saw a clear bright and multicolored orb (main colors were green and Blue with sprinkles of other colors). I was laying on my side and it moved to my back from the side. I made sure I was awake and not dreaming and I prayed saying to my hubby "thank you for the sign, thank you for your presence and I asked him to Pls come in my dreams that night with a message"... I was awake lying on my side and talking to him in my mind when I felt a kiss or touch on my cheek and a warm protective arm around me from my back. I did not need to turn around I knew what being cuddled in those arms felt like after 21yrs of him crossing over. I instantly felt comfort, warmth, security, love and familiarity. I asked him why did he leave me and moved my back in the spoon position to snuggle closer to him. As I tried to get closer I also moved my face to snuggle it against his face which was him but the face appeared of shape and features but transparent. Last thing I remember saying I missed him whilst trying to get closer (all was 100% real) then found I found myself in another realm with him. It was all so real but I don't recall how we got there. It could have been because we still shared a strong unbroken emotional bond, our souls merged and I traveled with him. We were trying to cross a dark forest with lots of demons coming towards me and I was running or floating backwards with him telling the scary demons to stay away from me whilst staring at them.........we escaped and entered a tiny cost building but he said went into a bathroom outside and dematerialised. Next thing I was in my own bedroom falling on my bed very shaken by it all cos it was my 1st time seeing him in ghost form but the demon and dematerialising upset me I think and I quickly said goodbye, thank you for coming but you must go now and come back another day"

      I lay awake reliving every second of that experience from start to end.

      I later started researching and was shocked to find pictures on the net looking exactly like the orb and also reading of others who experienced Astral projection describing themselves in the same realm fighting of demons. I started feeling better about the demon part then knowing that the orb and hubby's ghost were not impostors. I started getting flashbacks of dreams in which I had visited my hubby and my dad and gran in another realm except there were no demons in that part and until now I had forgotten those dreams. I know I was also yearning to see my grandparents and dad as well so I figured after reliving everything that my hubby's spirit took me into his realm to visit my dad and grandparents (that was his nature) but to get there we had to cross the 1st level which was the forest of demons. I think we had to turn back because i told hubby earlier in prayer I did not want to be scared by these things and perhaps he was trying to protect me and also his time for dematerialising was near so he knew that all of this would leave me vulnerable. I hope to see him visiting again soon and I hope he will help me to again confront my fear of demons.

      I just wish I could remember the forgotten dreams of visiting him and other family in a good part of that realm more clearly.

      I have been within 5 foot of one 10 foot in diameter this happened in 2014 in may

      It was around 1030 pm standing on a 2000 foot valley between two small mountains with my dog Ike I watch as it seems to rise out of the desert floor it was bright red and the size of a softball as it slowly rise straight in front of us it turned to a brilliant white light and increased in diameter when it cane level to Ike and I it stoped and hovered directly in front of us the light was contained within the orb then a soft glow lit our area then the glow was gone it remained there for about 3 minutes many more it then slowly moved horizontally to the east and the mountain to my left

      Since I have seen smaller ones always

      Around the tops of paloverde trees

      And twice have seen then come out of the ground

      Ive seen this exact thing, Mexico in Yucatan in 1999. It was the size of a baseball, it was hot and humid that night so I slept on the roof in a tent (the houses are stone and flat roofs, because "el niño" passes through there). It came from the sky I think because I didn't see how it appeared. When I noticed it, it did behave sentient. It was blinding white but hardly illuminated anything around it, almost like all the light was somehow focused into this baseball shaped orb.It hovered about 2 1/2 feet from the floor(roof) and kind of moved in strait lines. However its motions where like that of a curious bird; manically back and forth and once or twice with a slight diagonal jerk. I felt like it was observing my behavior. It was about 9 feet away at any given time and in my curiosity I reached out; at first it just stayed inert but as my hand got closer I could feel intense heat radiating from it ; I sort of flinched and it zoomed back and them at an amazing speed went practically straight up a fer dozen feet and again at a straight angle zipped into the sky. The event lasted about 15 seconds and this is the first place ive actually read about an acurate depiction. Ive read about the will of the wisp but its not the same.. The size and behavior are like you describe

      Today is 5/6/2019. On 5/1/2019 around 10:30 PM, I went out onto our deck to whistle for our cat. It was pitch black outside as we live in the country. In the distance about 200 feet away, I saw what looked like a single shining golden-colored "eye", such as you might see if you catch the glint of an animal's eye in your headlights. I naturally thought this was my cat, perhaps sitting on a rock near our pond, so I continued to whistle. Then the "eye" started to advance toward me, but it quickly went from being at ground level (as though an animal were running on the grass) to an elevated height, about 10-15 above the ground. At that point, I knew of course it could not be my cat, but I continued to whistle as I did not feel afraid. I remember being amazed that a creature, whatever this could be, would be attracted by my whistling...I thought maybe it was a firefly or a luminescent moth or something similar. As it came ever nearer, it did so with purpose, "flew" in a straight line, & seemed focused on reaching me. Then, about 15 seconds later, this Whatever was only about a foot from my face, at eye level. It was something golden-colored, round & softly shining, about the size of a ping-pong ball. I remember wondering to myself "Wow, what IS that?", before it just disappeared before my eyes. I never felt intimidated by it, nor invaded, nor frightened. I actually felt peaceful & happy that I experienced this. I wondered if it was a faery, or something supernatural, that saw my aura from a distance & wanted to look me over. I told my husband about it & put the experience aside. Then, the next morning, about 12 hours later, I was driving about a half-mile from my home when I had to stop because a Sheriff's vehicle (with a driver & 3 Trustees working alongside the road) was partially straddling the 2-lane road & the grassy shoulder of the road. There was a vehicle approaching from the opposite direction so I had to stop & wait while the oncoming car passed by, before I could go around the Sheriff's truck. But before I could, there was someone driving a small truck behind me (going about 70 mph in a 25 mph zone) whom I will SWEAR rammed the rear of my vehicle. The noise I heard inside my vehicle was deafening & from the impact, my large-size handbag slid off the passenger-side seat onto the floor. I remember seeing that happen like it just happened a minute ago, & I will never forget it. However, I did not experience any whiplash effect from the rear-ended blow to my car, which was nothing but phenomenal. Since the guy committed a "hit-&-run", I decided NOT to get out of my car to assess my damage, but to try to drive on so I could at least get his license plate number. I felt I could contact the Sheriff's Dept, & report the time & location, & that all 4 of the men would vouch that my car was indeed hit from behind. But the hit-&-run driver was still driving so incredibly fast that I could not catch up to him & when he got to the intersection, he barely stopped before turning right. At this point, I knew that to pursue him would be pointless, so I drove to a place where I could get out of my car to inspect my damage---I was expecting my rear bumper to be torn off at the very least---but there was NOTHING wrong with my car. I immediately sensed that I had been in some protective "bubble" that saved me, but also the 4 people from the Sheriff's Dept & even the hit-&-run driver from all being injured or killed. I believe with my whole heart & every ounce of sanity that my purse slid to the floor so I could see that YES, this impact really DID happen. I am still filled with awe & gratitude, & wonder if the incident with the golden orb the night before, was responsible for my safety. What do YOU think? I promise, I am a sane & rational person & I have never had an "orb experience" before...

      It was an early morning five days ago when I was walking with my two dogs in the forest. Suddenly I saw this ball of light right in front of me, 2-3 ft away . It was moving, and changing form like a bright softball, then like the form of a donut like, or almost a big C, very bright at all times, but it didn’t blinded me, I rubbed my eyes and look up to making sure where it was coming from, and when I closed my eyes I still could see the bright light, for a couple of minutes. After it disappeared, everything looked so much brighter through the hole space where it was hovering.

      I’m so glad I found this article, because this was like a magical experience, and I was so mesmerized. Thank you, now I know this is not a weird vision, and I’m not going crazy

      Glad to see others coming forward as almost nobody but my partner believes me. Those that do believe completely misunderstand us and show so-called orb photos, usually dust particles, but they are nothing like what we experienced.

      We were sitting on the couch one night, watching tv, as I felt a sort of strange “pull” towards my left. As if I needed to look to that spot in the room. I cannot even explain why I felt that urge as there was no sound, movement or anything to draw my attention.

      As soon as I did look left there was a bright flash and an immensely bright white orb with blueish edges appeared from it.

      It startled me so much, thinking it was ball-lightning and dangerous, that I wanted to jump up and run. Though it did startle me at first, in the seconds following its appearance I felt strangely calm. I did manage to look away trying to see if it was a reflection of something else. It sadly disappeared within four to five seconds and was gone when I turned back.

      My partner mentioned seeing a flash on my face and when he turned to look saw this bright ball slowly moving through the room. My partner said it simply vanished like it was never there. No further flash or slow fading light; it simply disappeared.

      I started looking into reports of ball lightning and other electric phenomena but nothing compared to what we both saw that night. I checked and double-checked every possible explanation but nothing comes close to what we witnessed that night. Except some stories on here that is.

      It was without sound, moved with “purpose”, was incredibly bright yet caused no afterimage on my retinas, it only lit up itself but not the environment, the mirror on the wall reflected only a very small amount of the actual brightness, house electricity behaved normally, weather was stable and dry/no strange atmospherics within a large radius, we weren’t tired nor did we use any substances(never do).

      About 12 years ago, I lived in an old farmhouse. I was leaving my completely pitch black bedroom in the middle of the night and as I was reaching for the doorknob, on my left side, close to my head, suddenly a very bright light lit up about the size of a softball. It completely freaked me out and as I yanked the door open, it flew away in a straight line VERY fast. I was scared and ran downstairs and have no idea if it stayed in the room any length of time or if it disappeared immediately. The thing that really stuck in my mind was that it did NOT illuminate the room. Only the orb itself was lit up.

      My first experience of a light orb was in about 1976 when I was just a teenager, walking back from a party with a friend at midnight.

      As just a bit of background information, I was born and raised in North London, and all my experiences with light orbs have been near the house I lived in with my parents until I was married. Our home was in a busy, and highly populated suburb of the city.

      My friend and I were walking past our local parish church, about a quarter of a mile from my house (there have been churches on that site since Saxon times, so it's a very ancient religious site) when suddenly our happy chatting was interrupted when we both saw a ball of bright light, about the size of a basketball, with a bright tail - a bit like a firework - shooting up from the ground in front of the church, looping over the roof next to the spire, and disappearing down the other side of the building. I have a memory that it actually made some kind of sound, but am not absolutely sure of that. It was like a shooting star, but very immediate in its presence, and quite controlled in its movement - and not high up in the sky.

      We were both shocked into immobility for a moment and then shrieking and laughing with nerves and fear, ran all the way to my house. We are still friends today and sometimes talk about it! The following day I told my parents, but they just said “Oh it must have been a firework”. But I knew it wasn’t.

      I saw an orb again about a year later (1977), standing at a bus stop with another friend, just down the road from the church, across the road from my house and outside our local park gates. I can’t remember the time, but it was dark. Once again the orb shot up from the ground, did a loop and disappeared over the side of a hill in the park. We both saw it! It was exactly the same as the previous orb I had seen near the church. This time I didn’t feel scared at all, just fascinated by what it could be. My friend was a bit freaked out though, especially when I told her I had seen one before.

      The next experience was probably about four/five years later, in about 1982, just before I got married. I had told my fiancé the story about the orbs. As with my parents, he tried to explain it away as perhaps a firework or some electrical phenomenon, such as ball lightening, but I wasn’t convinced. Then, one winter’s evening he and I were just strolling up the road to my house, and this time, an orb shot up off the ground in front of my house, looped over the roof and disappeared. Once again it was identical to those before – a large bright ball of light, with a tail, moving in a fast, but controlled way. My husband-to-be couldn’t believe it – his jaw literally dropped open. To this day he just can’t explain what he saw. Neither of us felt it was sinister or scary though – just extraordinary.

      Just one last experience that is not mine. My mother told me about something that happened to her some years later. She was sitting in her living room with the cat on her lap, when what she described as a large ball of light, suddenly appeared to come in through the closed window, shot past her, and went through the wall behind her. She said it ‘wooshed past her ear’. She was quite calm about it, but couldn’t explain it in any way, and didn’t really link it at the time with my previous experiences – just said the cat clawed her in surprise and fright, as she saw it as well!

      Still can’t explain all this, and have been fascinated to read all the other stories about different kinds of orbs. I’m so glad I found this site so I can share my experience.

      This happened to me twice, last year (2018) and this year (2019). The first time it happened to me, I was sitting in the backyard along with my friends. Something clicked inside me and made me look up. Then I saw this ball of light flying, it was so small I thought it was a star. It would fly so fast then It'll disappear then it will shine again and fly a bit slow then disappear again. I was amazed. The second time it happened was this year April 2019. I was at home chilling at the garage with my cousin. We were talking then I felt this energy inside me, it was good, a positive one. Then I looked up, and I saw that ball of light hovering across the sky but this time it was slower and a little bit bigger than the first time I saw it. Then it disappeared again. After awhile I saw it again but higher, moving at a slow pace then it disappeared again. I can feel it's energy. You can feel it too I guarantee you. You just have to be aware when your in the moment. You have to be present and forget everything you know. Energy flows where attention goes. It was both night time when it happened to me.

      My experience happened around 1984. I was laying on my stomach around 11 pm at night. I was wide awake and I remember this experience like it was yesterday. An image suddenly appeared in my mind. It was the image of a ball of light outside my residence and at the nearby well-lit intersection. It began with the ball of light hovering above the sidewalk and travelling toward my residence. Somehow I knew the destination was my home. I was right as it passed right through the gate and proceeded up the path toward my front door. The BOL travelled up the stairs and passed right through the front door. As it was doing this I continues laying on my stomach and was completely calm that this object had entered my home. I had no concerns. The object then turned to the left and followed the wall closely until it came to the stairs leading down to where I was. I realized that as the ball moved closer to where I was, I became unable to move a muscle. Still I had no fear. I followed the ball in my mind as it moved along the far wall and turned to the left along the wall behind my head, then turned again to follow the wall that was to my left. It then occurred to me that I was completely paralyzed. I could not even move my head but what was even more dramatic was that I realized I had levitated and was hovering around 18 inches off the bed. Still, I had no fear. One thing that has become more clear to me as time has passed, is that the object was moving relatively slow as it approached my head. It moved very slowly over the top part of my body but as it approached mid-chest, it accelerated until it flew back along the wall, up the stairs retracing the path until it was out the door and gone back the way it came. As the object accelerated, I slowly floated back down to the bed and when the object left the building I was able to sit up and reflect on what had just happened. I had no fear, or anxiety or anything but complete calmness. As I said, I remember the details like it was yesterday and I never spoke of it until the last 10 years or so. I did not think anyone would believe me. Not sure if anyone does, but now I don't really care whether they do or not. It was real, it did happen and I can only speculate on what it was about. I do know that I have had some odd premonition type incidents in my life and I kind of think that may be related. Not sure. Anyway, that is my story.

      Glad to have found this page. I had an experience a few years back after living in one particular house. I have had experiences with ‘presences,” going back to when I was a kid.

      I always felt that there was something about the closet in the bedroom that I slept in. I didn’t feel like it was anything evil, but felt watched. One evening, after being up early, I went to bed and woke up early. I sat upright, just enjoying a quiet house. It was about 3 am. I saw a small white light about the size of a nickel in between the two closet doors. As I watched, it grew to the size of a grapefruit and lingered for a few minutes. I just sat and watched it. Then it gradually grew smaller again and disappeared.

      There was a time when I saw a small black misty swirling mass in the corner of this same room.

      So glad to know I'm not the only one who has seen this! I was out camping in June a couple of years ago with my kids near Stockton Lake in Missouri. We were sleeping in a tent and it was a really hot night so we took the rain flap off to get some air in the tent. We were camping in a site close to the woods and there were a few other campers several sites away from ours so we weren't completely alone.

      I think everyone had finally fallen to sleep around 11 or so. I don't know what woke me up, but I woke up around 2:30 am (checked my cell phone) and glanced toward the woods. I saw a bright light that at first I thought must be a firefly. It moved like a firefly by going out, coming back on in a different location like it was flying slowly. Then it hit me that it was past the time at night when we see them here. Also, the color was like a bright led white - not the normal yellow color. It lit up the ground it was flying over, but it was only about the size of a quarter. There was no sound.

      It kept coming toward the tent and moved intelligently even though it wasn't a straight path. When it got to the tent it circled it completely and then disappeared. I don't know where it went after that - it just was gone. I wasn't afraid of it until it started circling the tent, then it struck me as being creepy. I didn't tell my kids about it until after we got home because I didn't want to frighten them, but looking back it would have been nice to have had someone else see it too. I was wide awake for 2 hours after that, but it never reappeared and we went home later that day.

      Lately theres a huge revolving white light in the eastern sky at night and wee am hrs. It moves what seems like 10...20 or 50 miles in a blink of the eye. It will fade some or get very bright and for a few seconds, blink out totally, only to reappear bigger and has moved. Nasa must know what it is.....since its clearly not a star.

      In the 1070's, my cousin, neice and I saw a big orange ball in the sky late at night. It zipped back and forth across the sky as a 100 miles less than a second. Also, it went up and down the same way. We stood outside watching it for about 3 mins and it went down....never to come back up. Neither of us thought to take pictures. Days later I remembered it and called my cousin and neice. It shocked them too that we had forgotten about it.

      I was recording a video of my baby taking her first steps. While I was recording I saw the ball light flying by, but then I just brushed it off and thought it was probably nothing as I was overwhelmed with my baby walking. Later that day I watched the video again and saw the ball light flying around and it came straight in the camera, but disappeared again. I was not worried at all, because I personally believe that it is God's angels protecting and watching over us.

      I saw an orb one night driving home from a friends house. I was stopped at a light and I looked up and there was this softball sized glowing ball of light in front of me. I wasn't scared, just mesmerized. It stayed there just a few seconds then took off and got smaller and was gone. This was 35 years ago and I have never forgotten it. I have also seen ghosts but never another orb.

      My daughter's dog passed away, and several months later they got a new puppy. She was filming the puppy. Later while looking at the video, she saw a small orb hover over the new puppy for a few seconds and then moved away. Shortly after the first orb (seconds) it reappeared and once again hovered over the new dog. She is convinced that her dog that died was checking out the new dog. I saw the video and it is quite amazing to watch.

      I'm from Finland. In the winter of 1978 when I was 12 or 13 years old boy I stood in the yard of my grandparent's farm house in the rural part of country. It was a dark winter evening and clear sky. Temp was below zero. I was there outside with my two uncles.

      Suddenly, I noticed a strange object hovering less than one kilometer away from us, just few meters above trees. It moved quite slowly horizontally to the west with steady speed. That speed was like of peaceful cycling. Then I woke up my uncle's attention by saying "look at that!!".

      It was a car sized light, a white bright ball. Object's outline was very clear. Bright, but not dazzling. It hovered few hundred meters silently over forest and then it suddenly stopped. It stayed a while at the place, unmoving and then it slowly started controlled landing directly down until it vanished to the deep forest. We never saw it again.

      The object moved in a perfectly controlled manner as if someone had directed it.

      This case has puzzled my head over the decades what the heck was that. I'm still sceptic about aliens from other star systems. It must be something unknown from our own planet. I believe so.

      I think I saw an orb twice in 2017. Both sightings happened when I was playing with my young pup in my bedroom barking under the bed, in both instances the pup was just barking away under the bed, I look towards the bedroom door and I see what looked like a small light suspended in air. My first thought was "Why is that glowing feather levitating in front of my door." I wasn't afraid or anything, it was just WEIRD.

      My cousins and I saw 3 (red, green, blue) orbs land all together slowly from the sky and hover over a farm pond. They quickly separated in all directions back into the sky. It was roughly 3/4 mile away but visible. We were around 10 years old and all remember it.

      My son died suddenly, after almost 2 years later I was sitting in the living room watching TV. Suddenly from the mirror on my left came a very bright white light, small in size, it went across the room slowly, and out the window to my right.

      I was I bit surprised but, a feeling of peace. I knew it was my son, gaining my attention. I felted very comforted.

      I’ve had a couple more experiences when (half awake) he said: “I’ll always be with you”. Another time, he gave me light box with a painting inside, but after awhile the light wouldn’t come on, I put it in a draw. Three years later after his accident I took it out and placed it on a bureau. To my surprise, it started flickering and the light came back on!

      Co-incidences. Not at all, I knew it was him. The bright orb solidified his spiritual existence.

      About 15 years ago I was walking home from a friends house, It was almost dark and I decided to cut through the woods because it was a shorter walk home. It was about two miles back home through the woods. About halfway home darkness was setting in so i picked up my pace. I noticed this light up ahead, and not paying attention to how long i had walked i assumed it was light from my house, but when i looked up from trying to watch my steps in the darkness i realised i was still a ways from home. For a second I thought maybe someone with a flashlight. But the light i was seeing was a perfect orb of white light about 20ft ahead of me and about 10ft above the ground. When i looked at it this fear came over me and my feet froze in place.. I looked at it for what felt like forever. Trying to wrap my head around what i was seeing. What i was feeling. This perfect ball of light. Looked like it could have been. moonlight it was so so bright..Seemed brighter than the moon .It was a contained light not shining in a beam...I began trying to convince myself it was the moon and that it wasnt as close as it looked, that the darkness and trees were messing with me.... Or maybe a hunter with a spot light got stuck in a tree...?....I dont know how long i stood frozen looking at it . It felt like half an hour at least ,but eventually i gained my voice back and yelled(going with my hunter in a tree theory).I yelled at least two times, but then it dropped straight down in a perfect orb of white light ,and a perfect line down to about ground level then right back up to about 10ft.

      ( Perfect! No glare no shaking just perfect ).I was sure then that it wasn't the moon and probably not a hunter on a trampoline... It did this a few times before its final drop to about ground level, and then straight towards me! It felt like an eternaty to get my feet moving ,but they moved so fast i dont even remember turning away from the orb. I looked back a few times and it was still behind me around 5ft is as close as it got to me. Perfect orb of white light about as big as a honey dew melon, chasing me through briars, tree limbs, ditches, and logs. No matter how much i zigged or zagged the orb stayed at an exact distance from the ground. In a straight line after me.I dont know how i didn't fall and i don't know how far it actually followed me.. Eventually my feet ran me out of the woods and back onto the road , once on the road i could see lights from houses and the sky , eventually my feet stopped and when i looked back the orb was gone...... My orb experience was so scary to me at the time. I still get goose bumps and shakey thinking about it. Most peoples experiences seem peaceful, maybe my yelling set it off... I haven't thought or talked about my experience in years. I was 13 when i saw my orb. I dont remember every detail of that night, but i remember most. Mainly i remember the Fear... Last night it was on my mind and i decided to search for similiar experiences. Found this page and thought i would share my story too.

      I'll never forget it I was sitting on a lounge at my mates house, He had left the room at the time and then This white orb of light floated within reaching distance right infront of me, I only started tracking it when it came into my field of view, but It hung around for a few seconds infront of me kind of floating around, I smiled as I watched it, It proceeded to head out of the adjacent window.

      This was at around 2pm in the day, the orb was around 10cm in diameter, it was a bright white/yellow light. I'll never forget it

      I was sitting on the couch in the living room when a bright light flew into the room. It was not light refraction. It was intensely bright, as if an short fluorescent bulb just flew in the window and stopped for a fraction of a second. Then it flew out a window on the opposite side of the room as quickly as it had appeared. Of course I assumed something was wrong with my eyes but my adult stepdaughter was sitting on another couch directly across from me and asked, “did you see that too?” She described the light to me exactly as I had seen it. At least 3 other people were in the room with us but they didn’t see it. I can’t explain it and we laugh about it but we both wonder what it was that we saw that day in the middle of the afternoon?

      A friend and I were playing video games late one night when we saw a light illuminate the entire upper perimeter of our living room. We didn't see a light source but we were able to see the effect of the light wrapping around the top trim of the room. We tried to figure out what it could logically be, and decided that it must have been a light from a car on the street that happen to pass by. I thought about it all the next day at work, and that night we were playing games again. Right when the game finished I turned my head to the side just in time to catch an orb expanding and then imploding in a very short amount of time. When it "imploded" it disappeared but lit up the entire room in the same way I had experienced the night before, maybe a bit brighter. This was about 5 years ago in St. Paul MN. I briefly tried to look it up but had little success finding stories similar to mine. I can't say for sure that the first experience I had was an orb but I looked directly at the second one and watched it appear and disappear. I am VERY confident in what I saw and my memory of it is very vivid. It was a very soft off white-ish maybe slightly yellow orb about the size of a basketball, maybe a tad smaller. I was certainly stunned. I did not, however, experience any fear, just instant questions and excitement. It was probably about 10ft away and 8ft up, inside my dining room. I unfortunately have not seen one since. I am so thankful that I had someone to experience it with me. It was the same friend both times! I was just speaking with him about it for the first time since it happened so I decided to look it up again. I was searching for a picture that fit my memory and ended up here. I'm so happy I read your story. Thank you for keeping this up for as long as you have. I'm glad to finally share my story!

      I am so happy I have found this! Myself and my boyfriend were camping in the sticks of Canada on a chilly September evening. We had been travelling all day and finally settled into the tent. However I wasn't able to sleep a wink. I am not good at camping and was worrying about bears... I really don't know why I do it to myself (lol)Anyway, so I left my boyfriend in the tent and retreated to the car for 'safety', and a bit of warmth. I ended up not sleeping in the car either and was still scared of the wilderness outside. After a half hour or so, something caught my eye in the wing mirror (I was on the passenger seat) A large bright white light. At first I thought it must be someone with a torch as it appeared to be getting closer to the back of our car. My heart was beating through my chest and then I realised it wasn't really coming any closer as such. I turned my body to peer at it through the window. It was amongst the trees, gently moving from branch to branch, lower and then higher, and across. I couldn't believe what I was seeing! I sat there for approx 15 minutes thinking am I going insane? There MUST be a logical explanation for what I'm seeing right now...No, I am actually seeing a UFO! It was roughly the size of a hand. I knew by leaving the car there was a chance I'd scare 'it' away but I had to get my boyfriend to witness this or no one would ever believe me. I bolted from the car and round to the tent shouting OMG there's a UFO!! My partner slid out of the tent and looked up to where I was pointing. In this very moment my stomach sank and instantly felt completely mortified... We were both looking at the moon... I got really confused and thought am I that tired? I know, the moon through the trees looks like it's something moving bla bla but the moon/ branches/ breeze do not equate to what I saw. This brilliant, pure white light moved so angelically and smoothly from branch to branch. It even moved to the side. It stayed the same shape the whole time. If this was the branches moving and the moon shining through, the shape would change and it wouldn't go up and down. Now that I've read your post my mouth has dropped as I did feel that this light was minding its own business and actually feel as if it was sort of sniffing the branches. This sounds completely insane but it's how I felt.

      Hi! I too have been scouring the internet for years trying to find someone who has seen what I saw one snowy January night while hanging out with some friends. I saw an orb shoot straight to the tree line from a large lake on a road in a small town that’s covered in thick wooded areas and very little light from houses, buildings or cars. You can actually see the stars at night which is something I can’t do where I live now. But anyway, the orb was about basketball sized maybe larger, and I was so entranced I couldn’t move or speak out for my friends to look too. I understand your feeling that if you spoke or moved it would disappear and the strangest thing about this orb is it changed it’s color from white, to blue and orange. as it literally just hovered at the top of the trees. Then when I turned my head to see if my friends were watching it too, I turned back and it moved in a way I literally can’t explain it’s as if it faded into the sky but I can’t say if it was moving fast or slow. I don’t know if that makes sense since it’s what I saw alone there but it disappeared into the night sky as if it left Earth in seconds. But it looked like it was moving so slowly to me. I don’t know all I know is, that moment I’ll never forget and it also changed my view of the possibility of extraterritorial life here on earth. I wanted to ask you if where you were camping, was there a lake, pond, or ocean nearby? I’ve over time thought that these orbs come from under lakes or other bodies of water since my orb came directly from the surface of a lake. Thank you for your account and curiosity and for reading mine as well!

      It was about 7am and I had to take my dog out to relieve herself, it was still fairly dark, I always check my surroundings, and like always nothing, I hook her it to her runner and when I stood up there it was , a ball of light about the size of a soccer ball hovering close to the ground, the white ball of light was so brilliant, I’ve never seen white so white.. it stayed there about 2-3 minutes and then my dog saw it as well and was pulling so hard on her lead I was afraid she was gonna break it.. and when I spoke and told her to stop the ball of light went into the ground.. I wasn’t really afraid but intrigued..

      This was on the Thursday after Christmas and I go out every morning wondering if I will see it again, this time I will make sure I have my phone with me to capture it!

      I was at a friends house alone one night. Prob 6 years ago.. All the blinds were closed. Only light source was the microwave light. From the living room, you can see straight into the dining room and then into the kitchen. Idk why but I looked in that direction, like i had a feeling i wasnt alone...and I saw it in the kitchen...i didnt see it appear or arise out of anymore, it was like when i looked it had already been there im the kitchen and it was moving around... Size of a soccor ball or volleyball...and it couldnt have been my eyes bc it would intelligently move and when it did, it would move so thag it would partially be visible and partially not bc it would br partly behind the wall so i could perceive its depth and direction. Wasnt just fixated in my vision... and i felt extremely calm...it was there long enough for me to contemplate if i should approach it...and i was wondering what it was to myself..and then i realized thats maybe the light my friends saw... a few nights prior, my two best friends kept saying they saw a white light pass when they were smoking on the back porch(right outside the kitchen) but it was weird and they ran inside laughing and kind of in awe and confusion....so i then realized thats probably what they saw also. The light was the purest white light ive ever seen...and it was definately 3 dimensional looking, rounded like a ball...except it was made of light. ...and it didnt have a trail or source of light...it appeared to be 3 dimensional/sphere like being...and if i remember correctly, i think i saw a couple golf sized balls leave from it in a straight line at a diagnol going up/left and one center left...the main sphere moved similar to how you would notice a bee in flight perching from flower to flower...slow. steady, consistent...wave like...it was moving about so sometimes I didnt have an eye on it bc the only opening into the kitchen was the doorway, so whenever it was in that area i could see it...and then I just stopped seeing it bc it moved to somewhere I couldnt see from my position.....went to investigate and it was definately unexplainable with everyday rationality....its only ever happened once. I am always doing research to find more information...the e tire experience lasted a couple minutes...

      Hello.

      I'm writing from Tunisia. It's 03:58 in the night and I'm still contemplating today's experience...

      First of all, I'm an atheist, and I've been so my entire life. So I'm really trying to find a logical, empirical, or scientific solution.

      So earlier today, in daylight, at around 16:30 or something, I was with my sister and her baby in the kitchen chatting. My sister gasped saying she'd seen a strange shooting light and told me to look out the kitchen window. I looked and another one happened. It was indeed a shooting light; very bright and white. It was a straight line but somehow had a ball shaped centre. It moved quickly towards the back garden. Then it happened again. Then a fourth one. The latter went by a bit slower and looked longer. All had different timings for their duration and for the time between them.

      I went outside and waited for something else, to explain it. I thought it was a window across the street because of the setting sun hitting it, but the angle was totally not reflecting to where the light(s) was(were). I looked at the electricity cables and none of them was damaged, so no electricity shock or anything, etc.. And the thing didn't happen again.

      My sister (who's spiritual) remained scared. I'm dying to know what it was and what had caused it...
