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

  • 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 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 sphere I saw seemed to move deliberately and intelligently. Is this the general experience?

    Yes, the general experience is that they are alive, intelligent, move deliberately, and are likely here to help us.

  • I have a gallery of orbs that have been in and out of my backyard since Good Friday 2018. I posted two YouTube videos entitled “Orbs- Good Friday 2018." I can only see them through my camera. Do you see orbs without a camera?

    The single orb I saw was outside in the middle of nowhere while looking up at the sky with just my eyes.

  • My dad saw on when we where driving home, and it came down fast, and it was our first time seeing it, and he told my mom and I but he shut it out so I got scared but then I look it up but it really didn't but then I found your founding, and I got a little help so can you answer me back?

    Welcome to the world of seeing orbs. I've only seen one myself and it changed my life forever. Sometimes it's good to read through the comments here to see what other people have experienced. Anything is possible in this world.

      Last night I saw a bright orb in the sky around 5pm (UK time). I see this one often at the same time. It shines brightly and really stands out. Around 5.30pm, I heard a helicopter flying in the sky quite close. I could not see it but heard the sound. It sounded like it was drawing near. Interestingly, the bright orb dimmed completely as if it wasn’t there. Once the helicopter had passed, it lit up again.

      This suggests to me like I’ve said before that they are avoiding being discovered. Which adds to the argument, what exactly is their purpose here? If you’re avoiding detection, ‘cause you’ve got a mission to do, you are operating behind the scenes. I feel no malice from them but they’ve definitely got their own agenda.

      I have seen a orb. I also live in Minnesota. I was 12 when I saw it. Now 34 years old. This happened in Blaine,MN off of university ave. I was snowboarding back of apartment buildings got tired took a break. I was looking at the sky all of sudden I seen this green orb about 20 feet up. It was floating around then it went stationary. It was weird I just looked at it. I feel like it was studying me and then went back to floating and then took off.

      I have been seeing a light in the woods behind my house and then it just fades away. There are no houses are roads through those woods. I cannot understand why I see it. Unfortunately every time I see the light some one I know dies. The first time I saw it 6 years ago my grandfather passed away. Two years later I saw the light and my cousin died. A year later I saw the light twice and my step brother and grandma died. Another two years later I saw the light and lost my other grandmother. Now just tonight I seen it again at the same exact time my cousin took his last breath. Could this be a spirit letting me know I am going to lose a loved one? I hate to see the light because I never know who I will lose next. I know this sounds crazy but it scares me to death.

      Yesterday, at around 6:15 am, while sitting on the porch with a cup of coffee, a bright round white light, the size of a cantaloupe, zoomed past me, way below tree level. No sound at all. I jumped up to see where it went and saw nothing. 15 minutes later, I saw a meteor up in the sky which shot south. I don't know if what I saw was a meteor burning out or not. Once, a large fireball flew over my car and it was orange with a tail. This white orb had no tail. Very mysterious.

      The more I see of them the more confused I get. Recently I’ve seen a ‘sentinel’ ( orb that stays in 1 position for ages) in a certain position in the sky around 5pm (UK time). The other day this light was joined by other lights ( they just came from nowhere) and I’m only guessing from this point but I felt like it was a debriefing session as they flashed frantically at each other before they got on with what they had to do.

      I feel they’re a form of intelligence - possibly from another dimension which would explain their sudden materialisations and periodic haziness as if they haven’t fully stabilised at that point.

      This doesn’t rule out an ET hypothesis as not all other intelligences will be carbon based. These beings defy all categories at the moment. They’re UFO’s for sure, but not the classical ‘craft’ we associate with the term. I just don’t understand what their purpose is at this point.

      My limited contact with them involves staring at each other and certain ones following me around. It’s also hard to tell people any of this due to the indifferent response you tend to get with anything like this. However, I’m glad I know they exist- it’s opened my eyes and I feel I need to know more about them.

      Myself and my husband was visiting relatives in Georgia - We were sitting on their back deck facing woods. I notice a big ball of light - i thought maybe it was a porch light glowing through the woods - but i ask the relative - they said no house is there - they said they never seen that before - it stay there for hours - Here is the really strange part . Now i'm back home i have woods behind my house it was about two weeks after our out of town visit - i see the same big ball of light - yes basketball size - i was at my back door - it rose up in a straight line then went to the right over trees. I ran up to the second floor of my house to see where it was going - it went over three trees on the side of my house - then the same path it rose and hover it went back and dissappeared. i told my husband ( who was not home to witness) - did it follow us ? Have not seen it since

      I walked out my front door, to the right I saw a huge bright orb come down into our atmosphere, stop for about 7 seconds and completely change direction and shot into space at the speed of light. Thankfully my bf was behind me locking the door so he got to see it but everyone else who I’ve tried to tell has probably just thought I was crazy

      Yes iv seen some! I had the privilege once to see a man size orb within 3 a 4 meter range for 15 seconds, im writing a article about that close encounter now. When you see that in close range, then you will realize that you don't need to be Einstein to figure out that it was a UFO. I did not only saw the light, i also saw the details of the surface of that light! That was like a eye opener to me, like i found out that the earth is not flat, but more round!

      And i can say this, the phenomena is real, but it's not what most people think it is. What i saw was not a flying saucer, that light must be from heaven/another dimension or another planet, or it's a high advanced intelligence what we humans not discovered yet.

      100% not man made, it looked like magic from the movies!

      So i have two stories, one being a few years ago, and one tonight. The first one was a light flashing like that on a plane, then suddenly as if scared it was spotted took of changing from white to green to blue to gone. It was at about the height of what a plane travels so at first i wasn't scared, but after it changed colors and disappeared i was definantally nervous. Tonight im in Missouri, and saw a white orb fall slowly in an arch almost like a shooting star, but there wasn't a tail like most shooting stars do. I wasn't scared this time, but facinated by it. I'm wondering if anyone could tell me their ideas about what i saw?

      I’ve been noticing 3 different types of orbs- not necessarily just in terms of physical appearance but possible purpose and task specification. It’s a very strange picture but so far I’ve seen:

      ‘Sentinel’ orbs- a bright orb that stays motionless in a single spot for a prolonged period of time. There’s two I see a lot; one over a park and one over the farmer’s field behind my house which literally stay in that spot for hours. They move slightly but it’s always in that vicinity.

      ‘Triad’- my term for 3 orbs that are almost joined at the hip. They’re always together in a diagonal formation with a 30cm distance between the other. Interestingly, they move in that formation too. They followed me home last night and remained in that diagonal pattern.

      ‘Red’- I fall this orb ‘red’ as it moves around all the time, travelling around my village and as it moves, it flashes red. No sound is emitted at all. However, ‘red’ is always moving, never motionless.

      The fact no sound is ever heard from them, despite the swooshing you can hear on video when they fly away at incredible speeds is interesting. Despite this, they can imitate/ replicate sound as I saw when one ‘pretended’ to be a plane by making an aeroplane sound a few weeks ago at midnight. The first time I saw one, I heard a plane sound, but when I looked up, it was one of the orbs. Makes it more puzzling.

      The question I have now is how do you communicate with them? They allow me to see them, to get close ( even though boundaries are maintained) but how do we communicate? No idea as yet.

      I never believed in UFO's and I use to make fun of people that did. I don't drink and I don't do drugs.

      The day I saw a white orb(a white bright shinning light the size of a baseball) flying about two storey's over my driveway, like hovering I was 100% sober had long night sleep and wasn't stressed. I don't know if I was hallucinating or if there was a white bright white light moving over my driveway at around 6am in the morning in the neighbourhood of Kirstenhof, Cape Town, South Africa. It puzzles me to this day if I did really see something what was it. I have never seen this light again in my life and this one only Unidentified flying Object I have seen in my life and I was born in the 1970's.

      When I was about 8 (in the 80's), something woke me up in the middle of the night and I had a feeling to go to my bedroom window, which was on the second floor.

      I went to my window and there was a white ball of light, about the size of a basketball, just floating there over the middle of my backyard. It moved around a bit then did a few circle swirls and flew off into the sky. I lasted less than a minute and I haven't seen it ever again. It was very strange. It wasn't a ghostly orb or anything, it had substance

I think my uncle and his wife had an experience i dis remember him saying it came down the chimney stack via the fire place in there bedroom he did say they were both scared and it was the middle of the night and is not a person to talk of such things unlike my self i have an open mind about such things

      Some years ago, as I was working by the back windows of my house, I was startled by the appearance of two white orbs moving slowly around the back yard. They were glowing and about the size of soccer balls. Most fascinating was the noise they emitted, a kind of robotic electrical sound as though they were exploring. While watching them I was completely unable to move or speak - though my mind and heart were racing. I was terrified. After a while, they disappear in quick succession and I immediately ran to get my parents who, of course, didn’t believe me. This incident has haunted me for nearly 40 years as I’ve searched to find an explanation or someone else with a similar experience.

      Keri you probably saw a ghost/apparition orb cause the orb I saw was solid white and just like what everyone said a size of a fist/baseball, no light rays but solid white and does not flicker also I think it has a mind on its own too cause I think it stared at me for 4-5s probably saying “this dude is not worth it” then zoomed away very quick

      and yes Brian I think thats what they saw but larger than a base ball I think

      I did, but it was in a room in the house. I had just turned over to try to sleep but was nowhere near when I heard a rustling. I thought maybe it was a mouse because we had an issue there.. instead I saw a white, flickering ball. Almost like electricity, about the size of a small cantaloupe a few feet from where I was laying. I was startled, but it didn't feel peaceful or scary. Just confusing. I turned around for a few seconds, and then it was gone.. I walked around the rest of the house, and eventually slept in a different room.

This was back in 2012 I had 2 beers and was smoking cigar outside my parents house around 2-3 a.m. While I was staring up the night sky thinking about my future this orb suddenly showed up hovering 8ft above me for 4-5 seconds and I was just staring at it then it flew away very fast just like that. I swear I wasn’t even drunk and I dont do drugs. After I saw that thing I kept searching for answers on the internet.

      Have 4 significant experiences with orbs.

      9 years ago when I began dating my husband he told me he saw lights/ufo and I figured hes either crazy or telling the truth. He was telling the truth.

      - 1st time was at night way deep in the woods above the tree line behind our house, one large orange orb of light silent and huge had little tiny orbs falling oit of it and shooting into the trees below. Insane and amazing.

      -2nd was too close for comfort. Out on our balcony over looking our pond I saw a blue streak through the trees beside the water, then it slowly, quietly and beautifully a blue ball of luminous light made its way over the water. It slowly floated towards us. I remember thinking it's real because i was seeing it's reflection on the water. He started pushing me backwards while keeping his focus on the lights ( which is what we call them ) It got maybe 10 feet away and we shut the door, closed the blinds and turned all the lights on. Scared the shit out of me but still I was amazed. I didn't feel a malicious feeling, just unknown.

      -3rd was unique in how the size changed. We were watching a movie and I saw something move in the corner of my eye at the blinds of the door. 2 golf ball size blue orbs were floating close together at the bottom of the door. My husband had his head on my stomach and I said omg, and he said yeah been watching them. He slowly started to get up and they shot off amazingly fast.

      -4th was no orb but light. We live in a loft cabin and I woke up in the middle of the night and the entire house was lit up blue. The same color as the orb. I sat up looked downstairs and the whole place, blue. I woke my husband up and said LOOK! He sat up, looked around and said yep, seen that before and literally rolled over and went back to sleep. Crazy thing is, so did I. Looking back, awake and alert, there's no damn way I would've just laid back down. So maybe we were under some kind of, no idea what relaxation? Anways I started having kids and the lights went away. I joke that maybe my kids are alien hybrids and they don't need to visit anymore ;)

      I was taking dishes outside, into my family's camper. Then suddenly, I look up and see a solid white orb falling very fast before it disappears. It was only visable for about five seconds or so.

      Apologies for a video link not being put up yet. I’ll wade through my stuff and find ones that show the lights when I can. However, I just wanted to post that a few days ago the orbs threw me another curve ball which was astounding. Around midnight, I checked on my kids (who were sound asleep) and went into my bedroom. My wife was fast asleep as well. Before I got into bed, I looked out of our window and I saw the orbs flying around in a distance. Then I heard the sound of a plane in the distance which grew louder and louder. The sound (being so familiar) seemed out of place but it’s familiarity was not abnormal at the same time. I thought that the ‘plane’ would make the orbs hide (I’ve seen them dart behind clouds when an aeroplane has come near to them or even shoot up then come down when a plane had gone). Suddenly, a brilliant shining orb (glittering like a diamond) cane over my house. A cloud formation appeared to be coming out of the back of the orb and the cloud hung in the sky. Most remarkably, the orb was imitating the sound of an aeroplane. It was generating a sound familiar to us, almost in my opinion to cover its tracks. If we hear the sound of an aeroplane ( unless we are plane enthusiasts) is it we don’t really look up cause we assume it’s a plane? Is that what they want to avoid detection? Amazing situation- something non-human imitating a human creation.

      Interestingly, Stevie Girl- I think seeing these orbs changes everyone in some way. I feel different in that my view of the world has changed. There’s so much out there we don’t know. I think it can have profound changes in people. I have felt it in myself.

      D. Leslie. When my husband and I saw the solid white orbs 25 feet from our back door, a week apart, the moon was not full. We have not told anyone about these incidents. We both agree that we still long to see the orbs again. Perhaps it is coincidence but my husband has been gruff with me the last year or so. So much so that I have been depressed by his behavior. I have noticed that it seems, almost overnight that he is being attentive and kind with me again. I thought about what may have 'startled' him into changing the uncomfortable behavior with me. I realized that his behavior became the way it used to be after he saw the orb. When I saw it that morning, I called up to him near the garage and he ignored me, when I told him there were hunters in our woods. (that is what I first thought...logical thinking) When I asked if he heard me he said "I have to go." I was becoming accustomed to his dismissal of me. As I said, he has seemed to do a 360 and gone back to the way he used to be. Could it be something about that orb that caused this? I don't know.

      Parents saw one of these late at night while driving. They thought it was a motorcycle light behind them but it came through their Jeep then hovered between them. Size of a softball and was white. Did not give off light. Then It zoomed out the drivers side door into the woods. They both were not scared! And didn’t say anything to each other for about 15 minutes. This was 30 years ago. She recently saw them again in our yard. I feel like some people attract these lights.

      This bright white orb that I saw was when I was walking the dog, having just left my home crossing an open grass field, the orb appeared suddenly flew just about 20 metres above my home travelling slowly for a couple hundred metres then disappeared. Was a full moon any link??.

      I have seen an orb twice in the last year I live in a village just outside York in the UK and Im an early dog walker, I was walking past the village sports field at about 5.30 this morning when I saw it floating just above the hedge, its a very bright white light that moves gently, I saw the same thing earlier this year in February, I both times we had a mild frost? I felt no fear just a calm warm feeling it was moving with purpose about 8 feet above me and and the size of a tennis ball, I like yourself don't have a clue as to what it could be but it is definately a ball of energy.

      I just had an experience. It started out as what looked like a tiny shooting star in my room. Then hudreds of them coming in all around me. The best way to describe it is they were shiny and folden like the sun but only the size of a tip of a pencil. The movement and of behavoir was like if i was traveling at lightspeed looking in reverse.

      I was driving home from work late at night in my car. I had left the edge of town leading into the countryside where I live. Right before I turned, I saw this orb of light appear in front of me up in the sky about 2 stories up. It was roughly the size of a softball. I didn't think much of it at first. Drones had become a thing so I just figured it was something like that. I turned right to follow the road home. As I was driving, I turned my head left and noticed that the orb was still there. I kept glancing left and the orb seemed to be following me. I really wanted to stop my car and just face it and look at it closer as the light seemed intelligent. However, there was no place to pull off. My drive from town to home takes about 15 minutes. I thought that when I got to my home that I could look more then. One last glance left and it was still there. I turned onto my road and pulled into my drive. I got out of my car and turned around, fully expecting to see the orb. It was gone. I've never seen one before or since. I've always wondered what I saw. It didn't cause any fear, just curiosity.

      Who are they? What are they? These two questions perplex me every time I see these lights. I see them a lot now- not every day but 3-4 times week. It’s interesting that once upon a time I didn't see them at all. I didn’t necessarily look up or interpret what I was seeing in the way I do now. I didn’t know of their existence so didn’t see them. However, they might have still been there all this time. From my limited experience (2 and a half months) I see them frequently and I’m confused what they’re actually doing.

      A few weeks ago, it was a blue sky day throughout the day, and I parked at my city's Marina to buy something from the supermarket. I saw one of the lights in that clear blue sky glittering away. I was astounded as before I had only seen them in the cloak of night. A week after that, I opened our bedroom window late at night to let some air in and one flew past my window like a fireball.

      The mystery continues what they are but I feel they’re observing us in some way. Observing what remains a mystery at the moment, but they’re flying around for a reason. I just don’t know why at this moment.

      My father grew up in Ohio and he said that he saw this happen once - this would have been the 1930s maybe?? But it came across the plane in the farmyard and then bounced into the house and then landed in the tub where my uncle (my father's little brother) was taking bath.

      I have heard that these are natural phenomenon (is that an oxymoron) that happen a lot in open spaces - particularly the midwest. There is a name for them too - like they have names for St. Elmo's Fire - but it escapes me at the moment.

      I haven't seen one myself, but I take it these are naturally occuring events that happen frequently.

      I seen one. I was standing outside my mates vehicle on the corner of grove st and tasman st. It was early morning about 9- 9.30ish. My friend was visiting a friend in grove st. I looked towards the center of New Zealand in Nelson to see a huge white orb like thing hovering about a meter over the trees and heading up towards the top. It got near the top and just vanished.

      I am still hoping that someone has seen the white solid orbs of light that my husband and I saw at different times, one week apart, at the same time, unbeknownst to one another. I posted my initial report about 11 days prior to this one. Some stories here are similar except the ones we saw moved so smoothly in the woods and at the same degree as the hill below them. Although there are trees, the light did not appear to disappear behind the trees, as it moved. They also were at eye level. We did not have to look up to watch them. We have watched together and separately for them each time we take the dogs out at night and in the early morning before sunrise. We both are disappointed that we have not seen them since.

      Early 2019, I was parked at an Intersection waiting to turn right, when a bright milky white ball of light a little bigger than a baseball shot past me in a slightly diagonal angle at high speed hit the roadway and shot straight up into the sky. I looked across to the vacant land on left thinking someone had thrown a ball, but soon figured out, certainly not at that speed. I forgot about it for about two weeks or so, and the next time I drove past the area or spot I thought it hit, I parked the car to go look for some evidence of heat hitting the ground and I found a small area which looked like fireworks were lit there. I took a photo. Still amazes me this experience. Fallen angel?

      I had a strange experience similiar to this story, i was in bed one night and i had a small screen that showed everything being recorded in my front yard,right next to me. I remember glancing over at the screen and had to look again because i saw a perfectly round,very bright light just staying still in the corner of the screen,it seemed like when it did move,it was like a millimeter over and right back as if it couldnt contain itself. Thank God my oldest son was awake so i asked him to go out to the front porch and tell me if he saw any kind of light or anything,and when he did i watched the light on the screen zoom in a perfect line about a foot right in front of him,and then it zoomed right back where it originally was. I was really scared honestly because i just didnt understand what i was watching but it was like i couldnt stop staring at it and admiring it all together.I asked my son to keep an eye on the screen as i went to go see outside for myself and i saw nothing at all but black in the woods, i went back into the house and asked my son if anything happend when i went out there and he said it never moved. So id say it remained there hovering for about 30 min and then all of a sudden it zipped out of camera view in a straight line like it wasnt curious anymore or something, needless to say,i will never forget the experience,the orb light acted as if it were intelligent and had a purpose,i just hope it was a good light and meant something positive

      Apologies pressed submit accidentally then. I’m was just going to pose a question to Lilly as she feels they are aliens and wanted to ask her why she feels that they are? I am just interested to hear as my lights are displaying similar behaviour and I am curious as the ET theory is a strong possibility.

      On a daily basis, I’m trying to fit these lights into categories, to try and understand them and find out what they may be.Sometimes I doubt myself, then have another experience to renew my interest in them.

      Last night, I couldn’t see any at first because it was really cloudy, then a bright flash in the sky pinpointed where one was located. Almost like it was signalling: ‘I’m over here’. Then I saw it clearly. I looking at it, ‘it’ looking at me. It felt peaceful and non threatening.

      It’s interesting that a lady called Lilly posted on here about two weeks ago that she’s been analysing them for years, with a constant pattern of them seem to hover and flash lights at people.

      Yes, I have seen these white star like bright orb shaped lights ..

      Many times now here on my property in Caledonia Missouri..I moved here March of this yr 2019..

      Exactly as you described...

      Im on Facebook so you are welcome to Friend me so I can go into detail if you want ....

      I just saw 3 Orbs around 3am this morning...

      it’s got me so fascinated

      I’m not a UFO enthusiast

      So it’s changed that obviously

      But It seems to me that they definitely are not solid...they look like a ball of light & act with Free will ..& make decisions to go in any direction & change directions on the drop of a hat ..

      two of them where traveling head to head & right when they were gonna collide

      They stopped on a dime

      Froze there

      Head to head for right under 30 secs & then one just went around the other & they both continued on ..

      While sitting on the back porch with my elderly Mother, we both saw a light about the size of a baseball, approx. 12 feet off the ground, 15 feet away from us. The light was near a old Apple Tree in her rural backyard, it was star filled evening. I asked her 'do you see that?', she said 'yes, what is it?', and I replied 'I think it's life'. The light stayed for about 30 seconds to a minute after our conversation, then disappeared.

      Interesting that the lights I see are everywhere once nighttime has come. Last night, I was bathing my son and I just happened to look out of the window and one of the lights lit up and started to move. It’s almost like someone had flicked a light switch. They seem to have the ability to make themselves bright so they blend in with the stars ( almost like camouflage) or dim themselves so they don’t stand out. Sometimes, when I see them they go dim. However, they also like to follow me when I walk the dog at night. Last night, I went a different route and then one suddenly flew over and stopped up above. When I moved, it moved. I’ve noticed they are linked to conscious thought. When I say to myself “where are they tonight?”, usually they appear almost like they could tune into what I’m thinking. They are fascinating. No idea if they’re light beings, spiritual beings or even ET’s. I’m open minded. But they’re curious about people, so far from a distance. There also seems to be a darker circle that sometimes is around- I feel this is the key to what they are. It exudes seniority as it hovers whilst the others fly around. As yet, too many questions and not many answers but it’s opened my mind to a wider reality.

      A white orb the size of my fist. Saw it a few times, inside houses that i lived in. Once while i was talking to my dad about it, it just came up from nowhere n then flew away. The weird thing is, a beggar once came up to me and asked me if i saw the white orbs. He mentioned three places that i lived in for the past 10 years. Even knew the color of the houses.

      im on here bc I decided to search for glowing ball and this page came up. Only one experience when I was a child on my grandparents farm. Hot and humid Arkansas day and somehow I got separated from my grandparents while they were feeding cattle. I remember a glowing ball about the size of a tennis ball that was slowly moving around on the grass. Although I must have been five or six I remember trying to follow it. I never could catch it and then it dropped into a hole. That’s about all I can remember. At the time it didn’t seem unusual because I think at that age I couldn’t recognize super natural from anything else. I thought it was like a game following the glowing light ball around. I still think about it and wonder... what was it? What did it mean?

      The one i seen was green and white, it was floating over a feild just avove the trees abour 30 yards from me and my friend that also seen it. We watched it for avout 5 seconds in aww of course before it flew at the speed of light im sure so fast into the night sky. That was my second account. I was about 14-15. When i was about 10 i was laying in bed look8ng out the windiw sometime around 10 or 11 but i wtched 6 red dots fly around each other 8n the sky in a manner that nothing we have could have flown, this was about 25 years ago mind you. But i watched til i fell asleep. When i woke up my eyes were matted si bad with cold that i couldbt open them. My mother had to come and soak my eyes with a wet rag. It took about 30 mins to get it ti where i could open them.

      So this happened about a week ago, and then again this morning. We live in rural PA. Our closest neighbors are a mile and a mile and a half away. Our home is on 4 acres of land. Our house is ranch style, built into the side of a hill. Our downstairs side door faces woods. My 3 boxers woke me up. It was still dark. I looked at the clock and it was 5:34 am. My husband had already left for work. I took the dogs outside, going out the side door. I stood out there with them as they did 'their business.' It was difficult to see them as they went beyond the the security light, towards the woods, but still on the lawn. This is normal for them to do. As I was trying to see their outlines, I saw a light like the beam of a flashlight if you shine it on the ground. Defined edges, white and not big. I thought there was a vehicle coming down the road in front of the woods. But I realize there was no sound. As I thought that, the round light moved across my line of vision among the trees. In a straight line and not wobbling. It then quickly was extinguished. I was not afraid but thought that there must be some darn deer hunters in the woods. But then, after I called the dogs in I thought that the light moved slowly and smoothly and would not do that if someone was shining a flashlight. I also realized that I would have heard them because the leaves have all fallen and are quite dry so make noise when they are stepped on.The other thing I realized is that our dogs did not respond to anything while they were out there. They respond to every little sound at night when they are outside and bark many times at the things in the woods that I cannot see, or hear. I did not say anything to my husband about this because I thought he would have a logical explanation and scoff at my being somewhat unsettled by what I saw.But my husband came home from work tonight and after supper as we were talking he told me that he didn't want to upset me but that when he was outside before he left for work, he "saw a light like a flashlight, move across the woods in a smooth slow pattern and then go out. It lasted about 30 seconds." He said he knew there was something very strange about the light. I then told him my experience. As well, this was the same time that I saw this light. Before dawn. We are going to go out there together this weekend at approximately the same time, with our phones to see if this happens again and if so, record it. I am concerned that it is being made by something that is not so good.

      Hi I’m from Liverpool uk on mother’s day 2017 I come out of my house at 1:00 am and turned left to go up the street as I took a few steps for some reason I turned around and seen a big ball of bright light I could look at it it wasn’t blinding but very bright, at first I thought it was someone playing with a big torch/light or something and playing a joke on me, but the light just stayed there at head height about 5 houses down from were I was standing so I crouched down a bit to see if I could see around the light like if any one was holding it I may be able to see arms or legs but I couldn't see anything around it just black and then the light started coming at me fast so I straightened up and started to back up and then ran behind a parked van into the middle of the street so I could look down and get a diagonal view back onto the path I just came off and the light disappeared the street was airy and empty I still was thinking who’s playing me but it seems it was nobody just me and the ball of light.

      I have a lot of my people over the other side from young, cousins dad friends maybe it was them next time I will try not to run. Lol

      I went outside for a smoke in my jeep around 3am and looked up and maybe 100 ft away up was this spacecraft. You knew it was from out of this world. It had blue light over top and just hovered with no sound. I ran in the house and tried to wake up my girlfriend. Looked out the window snd there where balls of light size of basketballs and they were unbelievably fast. I freaked out..The vibrations it set in the house was unreal. I stayed awake until it was brighter outside and i could see about 4 smaller orbs doing small circles just above the road. It wasnt a good experience for me. Everytime i go back to the house i have bad vibes...

      Some months after my wife passed away I was sitting on my deck alone. Something caught my attention off to my left. I looked but didn’t see anything. When I looked back in front of me there was an orb about 5 or so feet in front of me. It was about the size of a basket ball. It wasn’t pulsating but was moving inside like a swarm of gnats would look like. I leaned forward to get a closer look when it came “Fast” and hit me in the chest knocking me back in the chair. I don’t have any idea what it was or what it meant. I saw my local pastor and he said it was probably my wife’s spirit. I haven’t the faintest idea what it was other than it really happened!

      Hi there, thanks to everyone who’s posted on here. It was so refreshing to find a site that links to some of the experiences I’m encountering at the moment. It’s interesting to see that the experience of seeing these lights is interpreted in different ways depending on our beliefs, and as we all have to explain the inexplicable in some way, it is only right we draw on our beliefs and personal narratives. I’m not sure what these orbs are but from what I’ve seen over the last few months they seem to be intelligent, have a purpose/goal, move at incredible speed and also I get a feeling they’re observing us. I also get a feeling of peace when they are around, and a few times I’ve cried as they’ve drifted by in the night sky as I feel a huge sense of awe. Overall, I have no idea what they are but I feel no ill will from them. I’ve even waved and theyve blinked back. I’m fascinated to find out more, even though I’m venturing into something I’m struggling to understand.

      11/1/19 my Ring camera mounted on the front of my house detected movement At 12:55 am. I was awake watching Netflix on my phone (woke up earlier and couldn’t sleep) so I switched from Netflix to my Ring camera thinking it was my cat setting the motion alert on. It wasn’t him, I forgot had let him in earlier. I continued watching the Ring video and saw a car parking then a bug flying then landing in my front yard. Just then in the hedges I saw a light and thought it was a flashlight but as I kept watching it was a rainbowish elongated light floating by the hedges, I thought it was just a reflection from the camera lens but then a bright little white orb with an even brighter blue light attached to it floated next to the rainbow looking light and was nose to nose to it when it suddenly just absorbed the rainbow light like a big fish eating a small fish. The white and blue light floated like a bee from the ground to the top of the hedges then higher up in the sky about 20 ft. It never lost it's intensity and continued to float down the street about 20 ft. High in a zig zag haphazard pattern. It floated about 30 car lengths down the street until it went out the range of the camera. This happened about three hours ago and yes I have been up for that time looking at the video and finally when I couldn’t explain what I saw , I looked up on the net to see if this was a common phenomenon and here I am on this site. I still can’t explain the video. It was amazing and now has left me with heavy questions. I haven’t shown anyone yet because it’s 3:00 in the morning. I want to show it to a physicist or someone knowledgeable about energy and light. One more thing, it was not a perfectly round orb as everyone else has described. More like irregular blob shape with a bright white color in the front of it and a brighter blue light in the bag of it. Sorry I rambled on but it freaked me out and now I’m excited and confused.ps the video is still on my phone.

      I woke about 3am one night noticed my cameras were on and when I sat up looked again there was a bright white light about the size of a grapefruit as if it knew I was looking at it it hovered right close in front of my outside camera so I got up looked out my window I noticed 2 of them they were going up an down my street above tres and as low as above ground of grass as if they were kids out playing checking everything out they were very bright and super fast moved all different directions . I felt at peace as a month prior I lost my sons father young and also my best friend whom was my boss young the balls of light gave me peace when I tried to catch a pic with my camera for some odd reason my camera kept turning off as I was ready to snap a shot . I’m very interested on what they could be I did how ever get real good pics on my cameras that were on outside ones I’ve showed people and they were in shock. I’d love to experience this again some day in my life time my mind was blown dumbfounded for a week after as I tried to gather as much internet information I could on lights such as these I also want to mention a week prior I did go see my first ever psychic for a reading she did tell me my sons father my boss and my father were in sprit form right beside me could these lights of been them visiting me at the most saddest yet impowering hectic time in my life , as my life completely took a 100degree turn for the good after losing my loved ones and losing someone I usually take very hard ,

      Last night I was with my cousin filming a video of us and once we re watched the video an orb of light passed the camera! We knew it was dust as we experimented what dust would look like close to the camera. This orb was just unexplainable. But what makes it even weirder we have not long lost Our auntie and her funeral is this week.

      With over 800 comments posted here over the past 9 years, I've noticed a significant uptick in the rate of occurrences over these recent few months. Either these orb experiences are becoming much more common, or people are talking more about them here. It's been a significant enough change that I decided to mention it in the comments in case it comes up later. While sightings and experiences vary, they appear to be more common lately. I wonder if this trend will continue.. keep your stories coming!

      About two to three weeks ago i was travelling home from work on rt 35 in southwestern Ohio at about 10:30 pm. I suddenly looked up and saw a circular orb of light in the sky, roughly the size of a basketball from my vantage point, I'm sure it was larger up close, but appeared the size I stated. It was too high in the sky to be a street light or anything easily explained. Then, two weeks later I was travelling the same country road, at the same time of night, and something told me to look up and there it was again, the bright white orb, only even brighter this time, with a pretty blue metallic like color on its side, as a crescent moon. The bluish color wasn't there the entire time, only the final few seconds i saw it. It was roughly 200 yards up in the sky from my best estimate. I could feel it was close, and i felt peaceful from it. I wanted to watch it longer but drove past it within a 15 second time period. I looked in my rear view mirror after passing it and it was gone. I told coworkers and they were skeptical as everyone is when they don't experience something firsthand themselves. The fascinating part is that my boyfriend and i recently started delving into spirituality, about numbers, angel codes, and if there were any numbers I saw with a regularity. I told him I'm jad been seeing the number 9 for quite some time, and now im seeing 7's and 2's with a frequency which seems almost impossible. And now, after discussing numerics, this massive orb presents itself, on a semi busy roadway which was oddly vacant except for my car, as if it was only meant for me to see.. alien craft from another world or heavenly celestial spiritual body? I'm sure time will reveal it's truth...

      Thank you for sharing. I live in NJ and as i was driving on 295 I saw a very bright ball of light. It was about 30 to 50 feet in the air and about 30 feet lateral to me. I was driving about 75 mph and it passed me quickly. It was you coming straight bring up slightly upward and disappear. Although it was very bright it did not project light it was was just light. Have you heard of this before?

      I experienced this phenomenon about 3 days ago. I had turned out all the lights in my bedroom and had just gotten into bed. Suddenly, I saw a bright white ball floating 6-7 feet above the ground. It was about 6"-8" wide and had a bit of a halo surrounding it. It initially appeared in the corner of my room off to the side of the foot of my bed. As I watched it, it floated across the room, along the side of my bed, in a straight line. It stopped and hovered, still 6-7 feet above the ground, but now directly across from my face. It hovered there for several minutes. I thought that it must be the spirit of one of my loved ones who have passed on (two within the past 4 months). It definitely seemed intelligent and purposeful, and I felt that it was there to communicate with me and reassure me. After several minutes, the ball floated back along the same straight line to where it had begun, hovered briefly, then disappeared. I then looked around, checking to see if there was any possible way, that light from outside the room could have caused this to happen, but I concluded that it could not have.

      It was coming on dust I was on the far side of the field, there was a ridge with trees, snow on the ground and very cold, the air was still, the sky clear. I first saw the orb going along the ridge heading up hill as it got to the top of the hill it just disappeared. At first I thought it was someone with a flash light. The next morning I went over to see if there were any foot prints there weren't any. My father was with me, also saw the orb. The next morning before I had a chance to meet him he saw the orb coming from the top of the hill down the side of his property and out of sight.In both cases there where no foot prints.

      Hey guys I’m finally posting something about my experiences with orbs that I’ve had and then the one that I videotaped on my phone the other night. I’ve seen a green maybe orangeish looking one fly right over me slowly out at the farm one night and it was probably about the size of a basketball. It was a very strange experience. Then this last spring I was awoken during the night to something that felt like it literally shoved me in my sleep and there it was the same color orb and size and everything right above my bed then it just disappeared like 10 seconds later. It scared the shit out of me and my dogs I know that much. But the other night out at the farm again I saw a white one that was a very peaceful non threatening experience. I can’t explain it and I know I might sound crazy but I swear to you I’m the farthest thing from that. And I find myself doubting myself and what I saw but I know what I’ve seen and felt and I usually would keep something like this to myself for the fact of being criticized but I recorded a video and can’t figure out how to load it on here email me if interested lol and help me figure out what the hell these things are.. also I live in Minnesota and the last experience happened a few days ago

      Hi.Very interesting topic.Am from Africa and where I come from you speak of seeing orbs,shadow people on the wall and people think that you are crazy in the head.In 2015 July I was a bit tired and sleepless and probably because I was about seven months pregnant.Then around 2am I decided to go to sleep. I went to my bedroom I didn't want to switch on the lights because I didn't want to wakeup my husband.Then suddenly I saw this bright white orb on the floor slightly bigger that a baseball in the dark.I thought to myself that it could have been a reflection of the security lights outside the house.When I got into bed the orb moved quit fast towards me and it was right in front of me,like a metre away from me.I wanted to wakeup my husband but I was too scared.So I turned away said my prayers to God and asked him to protect me,my unborn child and cover me and my family with the blood of Jesus Christ and I never looked back at the orb again.And I slept.In the morning I wokeup and I kept on wondering of why that orb had appeared and up to date 2019,am still clueless.I have seen a shadow being on my bedroom wall,a very tall being with a hat on.I said my prayers and it disappeared.I have been to a triangular spacecraft in my dream and it looked real and I was shown the end of times and the people I loved just about to be engulfed in fire balls.I was accompanied by other unknown persons and where we were high up in the sky looking at planet earth we couldn't warn them,it really broke my heart.But thank God it was a dream and I have the chance to remind people that Jesus Christ is coming back to take God's children back home.All I know is that our heavenly father will explain to us the meaning of all this bizzare things we have seen in our lifetime here on earth.All I can say is we should just have forgiving hearts and love no matter what we encounter in our lifetime.Am a believer in Jesus Christ.And all worries we should just leave with our True living God in heaven.Because God really loves us all and we should all turn to him.

      I saw a white softball size object/Orb as others are describing about 8:30 pm. I was driving and it was just there. The distance between my car and the street lights. At first I thought it was something floating and the street lights were reflecting the light, however as I got closer to it, it reminded me of a round bright white feather or large tight clump of white cotton wood just floating in mid air, since it is Oct that's not possible. There was nothing over it to hang from as it was inbetween the street lights. I didnt feel any threat or danger, rather peaceful and I thought it may be spiritual. Driving underneath it was the interesting part ... It could be coquensidental however as I drove underneath it, it was on the passenger side and I heard a sound in my backseat as if something fell. I looked all around and didnt see anything. When I stoped I checked my car inside and out, on top, underneath, and in the trunk, nothing seemed out of place. The entire experience was compelling, yet odd. Hearing the sound as if something was in my backseat as I passed underneath was the most mind boggling part. Again it may have been coquensidental, just seeing the object so close and not knowing what it was or what to relate it too, is something in itself to think about.

      Yes I've been seeing them. I've seen white, green, light yellow/yellow, blue and my latest color was a purplish like color. They started on my birthday the same day my brother in law passed away. I've gotten photo's along with some video's of them. There's even been face's in a few "funny like" to where it brought a grin and a giggle on those. They have appeared inside and outside. In our home, front yard, back yard and my car. Then what's even more interesting is they haven't just showed appeared in the above place's either. They started at our home and have appeared at my mother's home 45 miles away, my other brother in laws home just 3 miles from my home. I think it's very "ironic"

      It was late about 3:00 a.m., and I was just watching watching TV. When I saw a ball of light the size of golf ball just kind of floating in the air in my living room. It wasn't solid. It looked like a ball of cotton. It move a few times from left to right, hovered and then, just disappeared. I've never seen anything like this before. It didn't frighten me at all it just made me curious. At first I thought it was a reflection from my ceiling fan but, it was turned off. I couldn't find anything thing that it would reflect from. My oldest son died 14 years ago at the age of 30. So ya, I called out his name. But nothing changed. In all, this ball of light stayed in my living room about 10 minutes. That's it.

      I live in South Jersey. It was still daylight but dusk was approaching. I was with two other adults and 5 children, standing in a backyard with an in-ground pool. I happened to look up and noticed a white ball of light, which from my perspective, appeared to be the size of a softball. I pointed and told the others and they saw it, as well.

      It wasn’t high in the sky. It actually appeared to be very close, like just above the 2-story house.

      I didn’t see it appear, I just saw it. It slowly moved in a line over us. We were all stunned and I kept asking the others if they were seeing it too! They were, thank God!! Again, it moved slowly, as if it were observing us, as well. It went in what looked like a straight line, then veered off to the right and began to ascend. And then, just like that ....it disappeared. It vanished.

      It wasn’t scary but rather fascinating. Unreal. But it was real. Whatever it was, it was there. I saw it. We, all saw it! I posted something on Facebook asking if anyone else had seen anything in the sky that night. A few of my fb friends had a good time with that one lol. But no one else (admitted anyway) to seeing any orbs that night.

      I’m not insane. We all saw the same thing. Whatever it was, Observing? Looking for something? It was there and then just like that it wasn’t. I think about it often in wonderment.

      Orbs are different in sizes, shapes, colors and move fast or slow. I've seen them in groups and alone. Some you can see faces through it some you cant. Someone said it right, its diferent based upon what you resonate with. Just like with life no two experiences will be the same. I love hearing about other peoples stories.

      24\7 I, my one son and one of my music students see tinny glowing lights all around us. They seem to be their all the time but usually, I am not aware of them. Whenever I look for them they are there. They look like electric tadpoles. Little tiny things but very alive and very fast-moving swirling but they are always there. I thought i was crazy until I asked one of my sons and he says he sees them all the time too. One of my voice students sees them all the time too. They definitely look like glowing live beings tadpole-shaped. I hear no sound from them and they look like electricity no colors my son and student describe them exactly like what I see. Napoleon Hill in his book talks about these beings in his book. Think and Grow Rich, he says Thomas Edison talked with Napoleon Hill about seeing them. So I guess we are in good company. I am convinced they are forever beings that most of us are not aware of. I have to think about them for a few moments before I see them.

Thanks it was interesting to read your experience. Matt

      Driving before dawn on way to work. Blue orb size of basketball floated in front of car Tried to brake but hit it. Stopped car got out but saw nothing. Have seen small bobbing lights often on other occasions, but not like this one. Think small lights are spirit lights which are radiant not like subdued light i saw. Was a guest at neighbors children’s baptism and saw numerous lights sescending from steeple and touching babies (triplets) and reascending again. I’ve seen newly departed spirits shaped like gray swirling clouds like cylindrical tornadoes not at all like orbs or spirit lights

      Saw a tree in my backyard with an orb of light circling through the branches. My husband and grandson saw it too. There was no external source for the light and it made no sound. It continued for about 20 minutes. My grandson recorded it on his iPhone 4. When we get his iPhone and charge it, we will post it. My husband is a physician so skeptical by nature. He spent about 10 minutes trying to figure it out and was unable to.

      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
