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.

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

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

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

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

  • I have a lot of light orbs around me. I just noticed by taking a video that they circle me. What's happening?

    That's what we're all trying to find out here! Feel free to read the more than 650 comments (below) to get a bigger picture of other people's experiences. Most people seem to think they are "light beings" sent to protect us, or maybe they're aliens, but really nobody knows. What do you think?

  • Fifteen years ago I woke up with an orb inches above my face. The entire orb was about the size of a soccer ball. I was too terrified to move, so I watched it for a long time. It was made of multiple smaller green and blue orbs that moved in sequence forming three nested wheels. The smaller orbs had symbols on them that I could barely see because the orbs were moving so fast. Have you heard of anyone else seeing the inner-workings of an orb?

    No I haven't, but considering everything else I know about the cosmos, your description isn't that surprising. It is amazing, however. Others have mentioned different colored orbs, but nobody else has ever mentioned a fractal/mandala-type effect within the larger orbs themselves. Very interesting addition to this puzzle!

  • 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.

      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

      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...

      Years ago I wrote about my orb experience here.

      Since I discovered this website I follow up and read most of the experiences.

      What happened to me is very similar to Chris who was followed by the lights while he was driving.

      These "orbs" lights are inteligent beings they read your mind. In the early 90s I was followed by these lights while I was driving . They surrounded the car for about half an hour. They were shaping flower and all sorts of patterns. When I stopped and got out from the car the light stoped as well and extended as big as a lorry showing triangles,squares and circles from white light. It was amazing. This happened around 3.30 am. I saw them two times. First in the evening before around 7pm. I was also driving going home and they shaped in two circles with flower pattern .There were tears coming out from my eyes like river couldn't stop specially the second time I saw them. These type of tears only came from my eyes 20 years later when I first started to pray to God . Everyday for one year my tears were unstopable. On my first dawn prayer I decided (just for fun) to say hello to my angels just to test if they exist at all. At this time my tears were like river couldn't stop. That was my confirmation that angels exist that is not a fairy tale. I feel grateful and really lucky for rhis experience. Not everybody sees these things. I beleive that everybody who saw these lights sooner or later will find the connection in there life why they saw it what is the purpose of it. This is an experience which you never forget . (One thing I would like add that the lights got stronger and brighter when it went through an electric power station and touched the train electric cable.)

I also haven't come across anyone else mention shape shifting, although there are so many comments here now, I suppose I could have missed it. What shapes did it turn into, out of curiosity?

      @LauraMedley86, Thanks for the link to your video! I watched it, but unfortunately since it's so dark there's no way to know if it's moving or if it's the camera moving. I suppose they could be "aliens" but I don't think that does them justice. To me, and many others, they seem like sentient, living intelligences of some kind.. and they've been seen on this planet for hundreds of thousands of years. The jury is still out!

There are similarities in some of the stories, but I've come to the conclusion after reading these comments for years that there are potentially hundreds of different types of orbs, each type with its own "personality" if you will. Eventually I intend to collect all the data from these hundreds of stories here and try to make more sense of it. Until then, it's always intriguing to read the new stories coming in. Thanks!

      I saw one of these when I was a teenager. My family was returning from a visit to the Arkansas delta and had to cross a cotton filed. The orb followed the car and hovered around each passenger window ( there were 4 of us). Nobody was scared or upset. I do remember my dad asking us, “ did everybody see that? “ I appreciated our ability to accept that we don’t understand what it was. Very interest to me though..... I hope I see another before I leave this earth.

      @Kate P, thank you very much for your answer.

      Last summer, i was driving back home with my two little daughters.It was probably 10PM.The road was crossing an agricultural landscapes with few housings on both sides.Suddenly,I saw,on the left side of the road,and almost 300meters ahead of me two orange fiery balls.they were more like flames,bouncing up and down,but not far from the ground.I kept looking at them trying to figure out what they were.As i passed them,the first explanation that crossed my mind was that it might be a fire from a hanging elecricity post that was actually there.Out of curiosity,i stopped my car and walked a few meters back to find neither a fire nor a hanging electricity wire.There was nothing.

      I wish I'd search about this sooner. I live in California, in the city of Bakersfield. The area I'm in isn't around lots of traffic or highly populated areas but it is surrounded by different housing. Well anyway, one night I was outside in the balcony with my uncle. He was drinking his beer and we were talking for hours. We were resting our arms on the balcony wall and he was facing me while I was kind of facing him and looking down at the floor since I'm on the second floor of apartments. I looked over to him and this yellow bright light was a good few feet behind him. It was so big. I told him 'look, turn around!' but as soon he did the light when out just like somebody turned down a light switch to off. It was so weird. He said he believed me but nothing like it has happened again. Could have related to the nightmares we have and the demonic history a lot of our relatives have including us two. I don't know. But I thought I'd finally share this since I found lots of stories

      @Sami, Thanks for your comments and story! Your first story is very different from your second. To address your concerns, people read and comment on this article from all over the world every day. Thanks for your input from Tunisia! Your first story is not unlike many other people's stories that you can find here in the comments. As for your second story and seeing things, you may want to see an eye doctor about that.. it sounds almost like 'visual snow.' Thanks again for your comments and for sharing your experience. None of us knows what these things are, that's why we're here. After almost 9 years published, not one person has supplied an answer as to what's going on here.. nobody has a clue.

      I am from tunisia.In the 90S,as I was in the balcony, I saw a round white ball high up in the sky moving steadily towards me.at first I thought it was a plane.but suddenly,it stopped.I wondered what it could be.a plane cannot stop like this.so I kept looking at it.after 1 minute,it disappeared.the sky at that time was clear and still bright.almost at 5pm.then it reappeared further to the south but without moving.As I doused more mad more on it ,I say that it emitted smaller white balls that were moving one after the other at a high speed.at that time I entered inside and called my brother to witness what I saw.

      Many years ago I lived in Connecticut and was working towards my RN degree. The following sequence of events happened very quickly. Within minutes of laying in my bed one night I felt paralyzed and suddenly suspended above my bed with my feet facing the ceiling. I was then turned horizontal and facing the wall, but still above my bed. I saw several colored balls of light shining on the wall. Within seconds I was back on my bed facing up and saw about 5 or more small colored orbs of light hovering above my body. They were beautiful. I laid there for a few seconds staring at them and then they were gone. I could move again and jumped out of my bed to tell my roommate what had happened. She of course told me I was dreaming. I was definitely not dreaming, but can't blame her for not believing. This experience was initially disturbing, but once I saw the orbs above me I felt safe and at peace. I have always hoped that someday someone could explain what happened to me. Maybe someday.

      Hi I have just come across your site while trying to find some info on what I saw two weeks ago. I had just turned off my light to go to sleep and saw a pulsating white light in corner of my bedroom. I first thought it would fade away and was surprised after a time it was still there. I watched it for about minute or so my mind racing for some explanation. Then it sort of floated/pulsated about 4metres thru walk-in closet wall and was now about 1m from end of my bed. It seemed to float about 1metre off the ground. It was an odd shape about 70cm high I think with smaller shape on top of a longer shape It pulsated quite fast and its edges seemed indistinct or moving, almost smokey. I turned on my bedside light and was relieved my room was empty, nothing there BUT when I turned my light off there it was still there! I was starting to feel nervous so I decided to talk to it. I asked few questions (like what was it, was it ok, was it deceased relative, wished it peace etc) and nothing happened still pulsating away near end my bed. It then moves again diagonally about 4metres towards ensuite. For some reason I didn't feel worried about it anymore and was calm and peaceful just watching it. After little while seemed to get bigger but dimmer, less opaque and no distinct shape and within 10 seconds it seemed to just dissipate away and disappear. Was very strange experience and I haven't had anything like that happen before. It seemed like some sort of energy but ..??? Haven't found much information on the internet to shed any light on my experience (especially the pulsating and not being orb shaped) except here reading all these experiences. Thanks for your story and this site!

      I live in the north Georgia mountains. My 8 month old puppy was barking up a storm in my bedroom last night. I went in to see what was up and instead of looking at the door as I was expecting (she sometimes sees reflections in the glass doors and barks), she was looking towards the wall above the headboard and was very excited and insistent. She was looking from me to the wall and back to me and then the wall again. I didn't see anything, but figured there was a bug, so I started to walk that way for a closer inspection. Just then, a fuzzy white ball about the size of a grapefruit slipped by me, going from the area the dog was barking at and out the bedroom door into the living room - it was about waist high. WTH?

      I live in mid Michigan. I saw a light orb last night (10-8-18) it was right as dusk, still a lot of light out though. I was in my backyard with my 2 english bulldogs. I saw a glowing orb with a small tail of light behind it (like you woud imagine a shooting star would have) it was a little smaller then a basketball. It traveled over the top of my 2 story house, across my backyard, and over the tree tops of a small woods at the back of my property. It wasnt going extremely fast, i had plenty of time to observe it. It was right over head. It traveled at a steady pace, and had no noise associated with it. And no it wasn't a drone, as others have suggested. I own a drone, so know exactly what one looks like in the sky. I live right on the edge of a very small town and i do have neighbors around. As far as i know, no one else saw it. When i told my wife, her first response was that i saw a spirit orb, well, i dont know what it was, but i do know it was not normal

We had just finally got every thing unpacked and I was taking photos. When we got the pictures developed there were orbs in the photo. There was no sun light or very bright lights in the room when I took the picture. I had seen a show that suggested that the orbs are energy beings,

      I witnessed an extraordinary phenomenon from my bedroom window on Sept. 13, 2017. It was the middle of the night, I was sound asleep, and for no reason at all awoke suddenly and opened my eyes to see a blinking light on the left side of the opposite wall. I immediately tried to find the source of the light and the first thing I thought was that it was coming from my laptop but I knew that I had left it in the kitchen before I went to bed. Then slowly, the room began to fill up with this incredibly bright light coming through the closed slats of the wood shutters on the large windows facing the backyard. The light was directly in the center of the window and was holding stationary for about 15 seconds. I could tell that it was very close. The blinds were closed, but light can still come in through the tops of the slats. As I was sitting up in bed looking at the window, my mind was racing to come up with what the source of the light could possibly be. My bedroom is on the East back corner of a 2 story house with a very large fenced in yard with lots of tall skinny trees towards the back of the yard, but with an open clearing of a grass directly behind the house and its windows. So, as I sat up in bed looking at the light coming through the cracks of the blinds, I hesitantly (not knowing what I would find) got up and walked around the bed to open the blinds to see what was the light source was. As I walked towards the windows, the light seemed to be moving slowly to the right (West) and as I pulled open the 2 top center portions of the 4 blinds, I looked to the right and said "What the hell is that?" It was a very large round object that was emitting the brightest, purest white light imaginable. It was about 3 feet in diameter. It was not a blinding light like you might think it would be, because I was looking right at it and I didn't have to shield my eyes. It was hovering and looking inside the story windows of the living room directly next to my room. There are a couple of lamps that we leave on in the living room at night, so everything in the room is visible anyways, so it was like this orb-like object was just observing what was in the room, or in the house. It was round in shape, like a circle, but it didn't have a perfectly smooth perimeter. It had undefined swirling edges, and it was spinning in a counter-clockwise fashion. It's center had a swirling plasma-like appearance that was really quite beautiful and was brilliantly luminescent. So once I opened the blinds and was staring in utter amazement at what I was seeing, I sensed that the orb saw me. Initially it was just hovering in front of the tall 2 story window, but when it saw me through the now open blinds, it started to move slowly back towards the left passing by my window and continuing its course in a straight horizontal line from the direction it came from and to the side of the house when I couldn't see it anymore. So, I immediately ran to the kitchen to turn off the house alarm and then ran to the front of the house and to the front yard to see if I could see where it went. But, of course it wasn't there and I have no idea where it went. I was disappointed that I didn't see where it

      I had two different experiences the first one I was in a bedroom in me and the lifelong friend saw a perfectly round orb but it almost look like it was nuclear energy or almost like looking through a gyroscope it was spinning and moving inside the orb it went by us but it paused in front of us and then it moved on through the wall into my apartment which was on the other side of his wall My other experience was I live in a very wooded area I went outside and on a warm July night I had of been 85° out that night looking up in the sky just above the stars I saw something white moving back-and-forth back-and-forth and an extremely fast rate side to side angle to angle up and down

      @David Mazlowski, I've also experienced extremely large, bright flashes of light. One of them was so bright my mouth was agape afterward, it was like nothing I'd ever seen, right there at work surrounded by people. The thing was, I was the only one around me to see it. Odd! You might want to look into the Mandela Effect and dimension shifting if you're seeing bright flashes.

      As for being monitored, that reminds me of the movie "They Live!" to say the least. You should watch that. There's more in our world than we know, and it wouldn't surprise me to learn that people could be monitored by alien species.. for what purpose I don't know.

      Please indulge me on this first paragraph. It helps set up my "bright light" experience.

      I was experiencing strange behavior around me that i couldnt understand. People were monitoring me WHEREVER I went. They would look directly at me then immediately type something on their phone. It was like everyone was on a common network so they could report my location...think gang stalking!

      I used to live in a fourth floor, corner apartment when this happened. One night I was sitting in my living room with the blinds open in my two-sided corner window.

      At the time i wasnt looking out the window, but a BRIGHT light quickly drew my attention.

      It didnt last long...maybe 2 or 3 seconds...or less. Before it disappeared the light seemed to brighten up for a quick moment...like a flash on a camera. My first thought was that it had taken a picture of me.

      Its hard to estimate the size of the light because it was close and much of what i saw was radiating from the lights core. However, if i had to guess i would say the core of the light was about the size of a basketball.

      At first i thought it was a drone but i saw nothing other than the BRIGHT light.

      This experience only occurred to me once (that I'm aware of) in 2013...but the tracking and intimidation continues!

      Portland is a town full of cruel...sadistic...evil people!

      This was long ago, about 1970 in the redwood forests of coastal California south of San Francisco. A couple of friends and I had found a campsite a mile or so from the road up a creek. On both sides of the creek the land rose steeply, and was filled with redwoods, ferns, and the like. Our site was a small clear area next to the creek that had a huge boulder, perhaps 20 feet high and about the same width that served as the border of the site away from the creek and provided some shelter. One night a white, self luminous sphere, about the size of a soccer ball began to descend down the other side of the creek. It moved at a steady, medium pace, and negotiated its way around the trees seamlessly. When it got to the creek it was directly in front of us and perhaps 4 feet above the creek. It remained there, in a fixed position for about a minute, then proceeded to move, in the same fashion down the creek and out of sight.

      We experienced something very similar to what you've described. 6 of us were on my parents river bank enjoying an incredibly evening last night around 10pm when we noticed a white round across the river lasting about 1-2 seconds then disappeared. Then approximately 20-30 seconds later the light reappeared a few feet straight west of the first sighting. This happened probably 15 times. The only way to describe the light it was a round bright white Firefly. One of us got scared so we turned on a spot light and never seen it again. We're all trying to figure out what that could have been. The area on that river bank where the light was coming from your unable to walk there. We're all still in awe of our special sighting. We're wondering if this light might be spotted again if you'd go at the same time, same conditions?

      My first experience with an orb,really messed with my head,not in a bad way,but a good way! It was in 2011,around 10am i guess,i was driving on a little country road when i first saw it, it was about 10ft in front of my car hovering about a foot and a half above the road.Before I could react I hit it,than it was coming up and over the hood of my car,I expected it to go up and over the windshield,but it didn't,it just vanished,and almost instantly I saw I guess another one or the same one,not sure,but it went down the sode of my car and then disappeared. This beautiful mesmerizing orb,was about the size of a soccer ball,shiny,and sparkly, like it was broken mirror glass reflecting the sunlight. It definitely did not scare me,I was more confused with what I just saw, but also filled with elation. This was one of the most phenomenal experiences of my life and I'll never forget it,and I still remember it as if it was yesterday!

That is when flipped and walked upstairs ( not even taking my food) but all happen so fast ( in my mind it seemed like an eternity maybe i was high). what is so fucked up about this is just after that i felt so peaceful, and like the pain was all gone , no scary feeling, i really did feel light and blessed even thou I am not a religious person , i do feel I am not at all crazy & I did see what I saw high or not /:

      I found your website with a Google search. I too am a skeptic of what I find online and find greatest credibility within my own experience. However, I know a trusted friend that I worked with whom is a retired military officer and West Point graduate and just a real no-nonsense honest person that told me his experience. From how I remember his story, he and his wife onced lived at a home on a rural road. Their home was along a straight portion of this road, but in one direction, the road has a curve. One night, they were about to drive on to the road from thier driveway when he saw a light coming around the curve. He waited for it to pass before turning on to the road. As it drew closer, he realized the light had a spherical form and not a headlight at all. As this orb met the straight portion of the road just ahead of the driveway, it accelerated greatly, gained altitude, and disappeared in a brilliant flash. He said they had to look away and shield their eyes. Once he seen the orb was gone, he checked his watch to be sure no time lapst had occurred which did not, but he always heard of these stories and those involved experienced a time shift. That's the story and believing in it, I figured he can't be the only one. So I found your website and look forward to reading the comments already posted and any new.

      I'm excited to see someone else has experienced this. For me it was a bright light, perfect orb shape, this took place back in the late 70's on my parents farm. Our home was on a hill looking down into a valley. The other side of the valley was lined with a tall wooded hillside. I woke up in the middle of the night facing my window and noticed a bright light in the woods across the valley. Needless to say I was frozen. I watched as the light slowly moved in a perfectly straight line down the hillside, across the valley and up our hill to our fence. By time it reached the fence line the light was so bright it cast a shadow of me on the wall. I went screaming into my parents bedroom but they told me it was probably just hunters and to go back to bed. I laid their watching as the light moved slowly back into the woods still in a perfectly straight line. The speed in which the light moved was that of a person walking but it would have been impossible to walk a perfectly straight smooth line since there were several bait ponds and a creek in the valley. The light had to be floating. I did ask a paranormal investigator about the light several years ago. She mentioned that there had been other sightings like this but I haven't been able to find a story like mine until now. I'll never forget what I saw that night.

      Hi there,

      This is the first time I'm actually going to 'put to paper' as it were, one of my experiences. This particular event occurred in the late 80s in a different country to the one I currently reside in. A friend who was a pilot had crashed and passed the day before and what could be found of him was brought home to be airlifted with the family back to their home country the following day. They lived across the gully from us slightly lower down about 300mtrs in a straight line from our back yard. We'd paid our respects and returned home and I took a cup of hot chocolate outside and sat reflecting on the short time we had had the privilege of his friendship. I could see their house from where I sat and as I watched a bright orb came slowly down onto their roof and disappeared as if it had gone in. I called my then husband out and told him and as we were discussing it, the orb reappeared as though returning thru the roof of the house this time with another bright orb. They hovered for a time and then began to travel up and outward away from us and the house they'd emerged from. They didn't travel fast or very slowly either just a steady moving. They continued till they disappeared amongst the stars. I felt it was an angel (or caretaker being?) come to retrieve Robert and it seemed as they hovered before leaving as though he was saying farewell. We also said goodbye as we watched. Knowing what I do now, it may have been indeed an angel or it may have been one of a number of beings - extra terrestrial or extra dimensional (the latter feels more right to me). If I had been the only one to see it I would have questioned my sanity as indeed I have in other instances, having seen other things before and since, however, that night I had witnesses. As we said goodbye I felt a splintering in my chest area and then a warm glow throughout my body and it felt right to say "au revoir for now, old friend" with a sense of incredible peace and love.

      My mums boyfriend had told me that he kept seeing ghosts and that they were his grandfather or something and it kept haunting him and he said it “stalked him” at about 2 pm the next day I went to get something out of the car and a white orb moving to fast to say rushed across the tree line right next to me with no movement or disturbance in the foliage around it and no sound, I went inside and told my mum and her boyfriend they both just looked me while he grabbed his rifle and ran outside, I asked him what was going on he asked me what I saw and then he said “did you see a white flash?”

      At about 4 am that morning my mum was taking a picture of the sky and in the corner was a unexplainable image of the white orb.

      The next morning when everyone was awake she showed us were she was standing and at what angle she took the photo and there was no moon, no reflection only the white orb rushing past the trees.

      At 11 pm the next night I woke up to find no one awake but my mums boyfriend crying with the rifle in his hand staring at the window, when I looked at the window the orb had been repeatedly rushing back and forth about 2 inches from the window lighting up the room, I ran out side only to see dissipate into the tree line, after about an hour he went to sleep.

      The next day as we were driving home, my mum got out of the car to unlock the gate and in the trees (there was nothing behind the trees for another 2 kilometres) was the orb.

      Saw a bright star like object today with a sharp white light, commented to my wife is that a star? But just one alone and it was day light, 7pm summer time. It stayed there for a long time from what looked like space, it then disappeared from that spot and a few seconds later I spotted it, relatively much closer than before, but still very high e.g 40000 feet, a jet plane was flying across previously and was lower than this white circle we had seen. It was a sharp light at distance like a bright star but when I saw it at the closer distance it was hazy, misty in the sky, circular now, and as I saw it (with my family) it sped across the sky at extreme speed, not in a straight line initially but zig zag then straight across the sky some 10 miles perhaps in a couple of seconds. I ran in for my phone to video it, assuming it would have gone, but it had actually paused at that distant place, and as I pressed record it vanished. My young son saw it too described as a white dot, zoomed across the sky. My wife had taken my daughter inside our summerhouse by now when I said it was closer, in panick so only had witnessed it in its start like state. I was elated to have seen his, then my son and daughter cried because they were really frightened. I just wished I had filmed it. But this has changed my view on sightings and what could be out there. It certainly wasn't a plane, not a shooting star nor a satellite, not a slow glowing lantern (the speed of what I saw was incredible!) and it wasn't a drone as it was far too high and fast for that. I've seen drones and you can hear them and were not in the atmosphere type of altitude this thing was and drones move at a understandable rate, not like this whitish round object covering 10+ miles in a second or two. I am amazed and feel lucky to have seen it. Now wonder what it was.

      The fist time I saw a white orbital shape, almost like a full moon, it was back in the early 1980’s outside my home when I was a young teen and then several years later I saw the same orbital shape in the same town in which I grew up, I stood on the sidewalk and stared at it for nearly 20 minutes, it sat there just above the tree tops silently and when I started walking home (15 minute walk) the light followed as I kept looking up and it was just there but when I finally ran inside to tell my mother to look out the window, we both saw the light moving across the bay and about an hour later, it had disappeared.

      Seeing this with my own eyes, not once, but twice has me really thinking that we are not alone. Many, many mysteries surrounding this world, this universe.

      Went out for a drive to McD's in my small town last night around 10 pm. Noticed a bright white orb that appeared to be sort of hovering over the town, but initially reduced it to being a star or planet. Pointed it out to my friend, he saw it too. We got our food, headed back to the house, and continued to watch the light. It appeared to be moving, but we were also moving so it was hard to tell. We eventually shrugged it off as being a drone (my friend is familiar with them). Fast forward about an hour, and we notice that we can see it from my living room window, just above the tree line in the distance. Okay, this cannot be a drone. My house is out in the woods and away from the lights of town. We're at least 5 miles away from where we first spotted it, and it's position has definitely changed. It was moving around ever so slightly, and at some point was joined by a smaller blue light that would have looked like a star had it not been moving in and out of the white light in a very erratic manner.

      In the summer of 1974, middle Tennessee. I was 12, my mother and I dropped by to see my aunt the night before we were to move to Virginia. It started to get late bout 10:30 or so. We were standing in the drive way, I looked up at the tree next to us and saw a ball of light it had moved from the top of the tree to the middle of it, before I could say a word my aunt said, look at that, then my mother saw it too. It was watching us,when we starting watching it, it was as if it knew and could understand what we were saying. It went out then came back on, but in a different spot. It hovered without moving, but knew we were still watching it. It disappeared again, when it came back on it was in a different spot again, and hovering yet again. This continued many times until it was completly disappeared, but each time we could see it, it was as if it knew what we were doing and saying and that we were watching it the whole time. We all 3 saw it. I have never seen it again, at least not yet.

      I was about 10 and it was a stressful night.. my grandma and mother were arguing so they went outside. At the time I was really fascinated with aliens. Anyways I was in the attic with my brother and we were looking out the window watching our grandma and mom .. suddenly a ball of light came slowly hovering towards us. I couldn't believe it. It just stood there hovering above the house across from me. I couldn't move but I was crying. It was there for about 5 mins then it slowly hovered back where it came from . I asked my mother and grandma if they seen it and they said no.

      Today, around 10 something p.m. Me, my boyfriend, sister and her friend were sitting on top of our cellar, watching fireworks when all of a sudden we saw some white orb thing zoom past. It was in our neighbor's yard. And at first my boyfriend didn't see it but he went over there and it was almost on the ground just hovering and moving in a straight line. And after awhile he went back over there and it was gone. But our neighbor's were acting really weird. I'm assuming that they knew about the thing prior to it falling out of the sky? Cause they were outside shining lasers in their yard. And then the orb appeared and then they like shined their flashlights/lasers at us and then went inside and shut their blinds and turned their lights off. It was a strange experience and we're still trying to comprehend it

      So..Well,the incidence takes place way back when I was 12 or so. I was sleeping in my room,in my bed besides my brother. Suddenly, I woke up, well, what I saw when I woke up has made me question my senses or the reality of that incident again and again. There was a bright white light in front of me,it was not moving, perfectly stable, just levitating in air. I was mesmerized,idk, when I look back at it, something against logic should have made me scream but, I stayed perfectly calm,hell, calmer then I usually am. I just kept staring at the light as the light provided me ease. Afterwards, I fell asleep while staring at that white light. It was circular and very bright..its size was not very big, but it was very, very bright.

      Another thing which I noted is that,I am more of an early bird but,I literally slept for 5 hours more then usual and my family tried to wake me up during breakfast but, there tries were in vain.

      Idk If all this connects but..that expirence was a scary one when I think about it.. But,putting myself in the shoes of my 12 year self, I would still do the same thing!
