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.

Have you seen an orb before?

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

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

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

THE BALL OF LIGHT

Are there beings made of pure light energy? What did I see?

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

Energy = (Mass) * (Speed of Light) ^2
Energy = (Mass) * (Speed of Light) ^2 | Source

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.

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

      My sister and I both saw one about 12 years ago I'll never forget. I was about 13 and we were walking to school, it was heavy snow with about an inch settled. I can't remember exactly how it appeared or where it went (my sister neither which is odd) but I remember us both just stopping in the street staring, it was just over arms length away at head height and drifted slowly, the light in the centre was REALLY bright. But yeah that's my experience would pass any lie detector anyday, and my sister would too! Adam

      Yes I experienced a huge ball of white light outside my Dad`s house when i was 13 years old. I thought it was the full moon at first coming through the clouds but instead this light just hovered there for a while and then came down and totally blinked out and disappeared.

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

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

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

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

      -32.950925, 18.115904 is approximately where it happened.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      I was about to go to sleep in the living room when I was a about 10 years old. Our living room has a glass door that's looks out to our deck as well as the woods (we live in an isolated area). A ball of light the size of my fist zoomed by across the outside of the big sliding glass door. It lit up like a lightening bug, but was huge. It scared me, and I cried and slept with my parents. No one believes me to this day.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      Back in 2004 in Florida as I was fishing I stopped and took a few pictures of a fish eagle that was persistant in diving into the lake. One of my pictures still baffles me to this day. A white orb about the size of a baseball floats alongside the bird in mid air. I can't explain it. I wrote a hub"The Unexplained Phenomena" and it is listed in Hub Pages if you want to read it. The photo is visible also.My pen name is Whonunuwho and I'll be glad to share it. Thanks. whonu

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

As we are driving up we see this white light In the sky.. at first we thought it may be a really bright star but we realized it was super close to us and it most definitely wasn't a star. About 1 minute of noticing it faded out right in front of our faces.

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

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

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

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

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

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

      To make a very long story short...

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

      It's haunted me ever since.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I also feel all sighting are not like mine being they are high in sky or multiple lights moving fast. This light was slow and calculated which made me believe it was either intelligent or under intelligent control amd has changed my life in that all my spare time for the most part is dedicated to researching this topic.

      I started noticing tiny glittery lights not far from the ground, which is surrounded by at least 80 acres of woods. They were definitely not fireflies. I have a house on this property that I use as a retreat part time. It's in Indiana and currently it is January. Out of curiosity I've kept checking on these lights, never knowing what they are. Last night I turned off all the lights in my house and gazed out the window looking for my little sparkling lights. I did see a few scattered little lights that blinked on and off, but then I saw a bigger light ball just below the tree line out in the deep woods. I had no idea how it could be there as it is very dark around here and there are no houses or lights out there. The light orb was as bright as a ldl (whatever the new lightbulbs are called) and would fade in and out and ocassionally "slide" a bit to the left or right and go up or down. At times it would disappear altogether for a moment. Also the sky from the view of another window had a flickering pale light over the tree line, sort of like heat lightning, but it was 45 degrees. From every window I could see the tiny lights flicker. I was transfixed and not scared, just highly curious. I went to sleep for a few hours then checked for the lights, but I didn't see any. I will keep monitoring the lights and hope someone comes up with an explanation. It is truly fascinating.

      I had this exact same experience! I was outside, with one other person and it was around 1 am. We were pulling an all nighter, but we had not been drinking at all...so I know that what I had seen was not a hallucination.

      Anyways...we were headed to the hottie and my friend Nate had looked up and said "oh cool, they're back." When I looked at him in confustion, he pointed up and said they're watching us, and he started laughing. But once I looked up, I froze dead in my tracks. It was the most bizarre mystery I had ever witnessed, and I was mesmerized. It was an orb of light, very present and distinct, and it was kind of dancing there, just hovering about 30 ft above us at the tree tops. I asked Nathan what it was and he said he didn't know, but it had been there the night before for like 5-8 hours.

      Well, I decided to keep an eye on this phenomenon as I sat in the hot tub and wrote my music. All while this orb continued to hang above my head and slowly go back and forth just a few feet at a time. Well after a while, Nate went in as it turned 4am and I would look up to take notice of the orb only once an hour. Each time I looked up it would be a little further away but it was still there, and still very present.

      It turned 5:30 now and the sun was coming up and I was ready to go in. I gathered my things and decided to take a smoke break and continue to figure out what this orb was and what it was doing in Nate's back yard. I watched it for about 3 minutes straight and in that three minutes, noticed that it disappeared and reappeared about 7 feet over, still slightly dancing and still very distinct. Then the weiredest thing happened, all of a sudden it just vanished. It was like it took off into space, but so fast that I hardly seen where it had really gone.

      I was so confused but ran inside to tell Nate all about my experience. Nate had the same exact experience the day before, and we both concluded it had to be something out of this world. Something definitely unexplainable, something we would never forget.

      Thank you for sharing your story and just know my friend, that you are not alone.

      They're watching you ;)

      Hi! When I was 16-17 I went home from school. It was middle of the sunny day. And I looked at the sky and saw bright sun ! Second after I realized sun is on other side of the sky and this thing moving towards me. It stopped for a moment and then really quickly disappeared in distance. I told multiple people but nobody know how to react on that. The weirdest part was that it didn't feel weird at all. I went home and made a snack and watch tv. Haha but I will always be curious what was it.

      Well I don't know if you still alive or if you forget this phenomenon and you get back to reality but I'm exited to find this post, I was surfing the web to find similaritys of my sight, I live in Venezuela, I was with two friends in the street, 2:40 Am, 2010, I look up to the sky and I saw an orb, white, no noise, descending into the clouds, then its change shape and become a huge circule, then 2 seconds later become a Orb again and disappear, all the sight last about 8 seconds and I didn't tell my friends because I know they will not believe me, its was very close to me, I don't know if they mean to show in front of me or if this was an accident, I only know that they exist 100%, my only doubt is if it was an Ufo ship or a being, that's my mystery with orbs.

      I was 9 years old and my family and I were lighting foreworks on a warm clear 4th of July night. All of a sudden a yellow orangish ball of light the size of a baseball came darting at us and came to an instant stop above us (about 25ft high) and just stayed there for the remainder of the night. I knew it was intelligent and observing us. I wasn't svared at all.

      As a young serviceman in late 1980/early 1981 I had what can only be described as a fight with a football size white orb. Exactly as yours but larger. I was alone in a 4 bed barrack room. I awoke to see this bright ball in my face. I instantly went on the attack, swinging punches like a mad man. It dodged each one so easily. I was screaming obscenities and nearly knocked the locker beside my bed over. Other servicemen next door wondered what on earth was going on. They decided not to even come into my room due to my ridiculous violent behaviour. This thing was so fast and suddenly vanished. The other lads saw me in the morning and assumed I'd had a nightmare. I knew absolutely that this was real. Soon after I noticed a bump/spot under a tattoo on my left bicep. It stayed for decades until I finally picked it out with a pin about 3 years ago. A perfect tiny pearl popped out. I held it for a few seconds but it dropped to the carpet and disappeared. I bled a little and was sore but it soon healed. I have no idea what it was but it was real. An amazing experience that was so scary. This thing was under intelligent control, unlike me!

      I've seen two. One was while I was driving at night out in the country. It was in a cow field around one or 2 ft off the ground. It ziggy zagged and disappeared. Then 6 years later, or the other night, I was driving to work early in the morning so it was still dark. I saw a light rush past me, about as far from the top of my car as a light post, and it went into some trees ahead and disappeared.

      I had an experience very much like yours. It was also in Minnesota but at Taylor Falls this September at three in the morning after the biggest thunderstorm I've ever experienced while camping. My friend and I had been trapped in our tent for hours because of the crazy lightening storm that was happening above us. It was such an intense experience. After the storm calmed, we walked to the river. We were dancing by the river (we're both artists/hippies haha) the clouds were still thick above us, and but the air was cool and peaceful. All of a sudden, while my friend dances about 50 ft behind me, across the river in the sky I see what resembled a falling star fall from the gray clouds into the sky just right above the tree tops. This ball of light was a little bigger than a grapefruit, and pure bright light. At first I was like.. is this a drone? But it slowly hoovered and softly bounced about the tree tops across the river moving so organically like it was alive. It then proceeded to float across the long river to my side. As it floated across the river, it got lower, about 20 feet above the water? I could see it so well, I was afraid to say anything in case it would be scared away.But then it came to the side of the river I was on, raised higher and higher and then perched itself inside the very top of a treetop. Then I started freaking out super excited, yelling at my friend to look at what I was experiencing. She continued to do her own thing but acknowledged seeing it, so I know I wasn't hallucinating. I starred at it forever as it bobbed up and down in the treetop. Then we were getting cold and tired and went back to the campsite. But just as everyone has said above, I felt totally at peace within its presence (while still being excited). There was a definite feeling of calm. I believe it was a woodland spirit, or possibly an alien... or maybe even an angel? Who knows... all I know is what I saw and experienced and it has changed my view on everything. I have never been a religious person, but always kind of been more of spiritual person.

      I experienced the glowing orbs for months. But I have also see the sparkle on angels wings as they flew in he clouds. I have lots of photos and video feed for I am a photographer. I caught one on camera a solid sphere that has 6 sides like dice only more spherical and shine colorful lights. I have felt an evil precense for a while and although I didn't feel they were the orbs I knew they would know who these evil creatures were. Finally one night as I star gazed and enjoyed the night sky as always, I asked for god to keep me safe, I asked if the angels and messages they write in the clouds were real bc I see them often. and asked if I was in danger and if he could identify those filling my soul with fear. Suddenly 3 orbs of light quickly come together from all different directions forming a triangle they would hover and circle with out breaking formation, I asked again if it was real. And All of a sudden I was hit by 3 consecutive waves of light from east to west they rolled down the hill and dispersed after coming in contact. This cause a ripple event in the darkness. Directly following the third wave something very large ran into a tree and caused all these giant dark figures to move where they stood, they were exposed. & I felt surrounded. i looked to my left to see two large green eyes starring at me between the railings of the top deck I was sitting on. Fearing to look anywhere else I looked up only to see the word "real" written in the clouds clear as day. I was filled with fear but had a calming sense that god was watching out for me to keep me safe. I spoke into the darkness "the gangs all here" and just starred at the glowing orbs asking what to do next, sit here frozen or take shelter. I look up again and read the word save. "Good idea" with no hesitation I grabbed my things and ran inside. Strange things continued to happen and the next morning the angels spoke to me thru he clouds claiming they were ET. And pointed out a solid trianglular space craft hovering me, UFO. I believe god has a plan if they are not here in peace. I went to church and prayed and I continue to pray to god that no harm will come to me nor my family by these creatures of the night. Are the orbs god or are they simply another form of extraterrestrial life. And god sends his messengers to soar the sky giving them the ability to direct the clouds and trace things in them. I am still scared of the night and use my rosary to protect me. now sleep with the lights on being only 5 days ago I'm not sure if I have seen the last of them. I no longer ignore the bumps in the night. We are not alone

      Hi, this happened to us last night by our campfire. We own land in Pray, Wi, abut 25 miles east of Black River falls. It was between 5:30-6:00 pm and getting ready to head into our camper. My hubby & I were talking to each other and I saw a white object zoom by our faces, over our fire. I looked at him, and asked if he saw it, thinking it was only me seeing things. He saw it as well. I blew it off as being an albino bat? He said it look round like a size of a golf ball. I thought it appeared slightly bigger than that. We headed into the camper, and an hour later my husband went back outside and saw it again! The next day we planned on asking some of the locals, but we got too busy and headed home. I am very interested in this too, so if you find anything out, please let us know! !

      This happened to me when i was a kid.. the weird thing was it was in broad daylight- the bright white ball of light was actually hovering high above & then suddenly rushed towards me, i was blinded for a split second when it hit my chest, & then it disappeared. no feeling at all. I was really confused, even raised my shirt- no mark no nothing.

      there isn't much info on these things & when I tell others my experience, the seem to think it was some kind of nature spirit / divine being. Or that i'm nuts.

      I didn't feel anything weird after the incident. though i did see a nearly invisible orb in broad daylight as well sometime after, at another location

      Our first apartment after moving to our new state, we started to have some odd things happen. One night while eating dinner, my husband and I were sitting on the couch eating while our boys were in the dining area diagonally across from us. That apartment had a long tall hallway after two sets of stairs and landings to get down into the apartment, that long hallway brought you into the rest of the place and was a straight shot to our boys room. That night during dinner, I looked up and saw a bright ball of light floating down the hallway. As I watched it approach, my oldest son who was three at the time looked up and saw it too. He was automatically terrified and wanted to be picked up. We watched it travel straight into the boys room. After, I got up to look in the boys room and found nothing. My other experiences there include hearing a man whispering like he is right behind me but no one is there and this has since happened at our new place. My husband is a non believer, however, one morning while he was getting ready for work, he looked at the entryway to the kitchen while making his lunch for the day and was very startled to see a white mist float right past the kitchen entrance. He didn't tell me that for a while because he didn't want to scare me. He says he isn't sure what it was but it did alarm him.

      I lived in a house by a country club with a pond not far from our house. I was sitting on the back porch having a drink. I thought I saw a shooting star to the right out of the corner of my eye. I looked up and saw a ball of light floating back and forth like it was looking for something over the pond. A couple of minutes later it flew off out of sight around the house. A few minutes later it came back. It flew back and forth, slowly, as if it were looking for something. Then....it started toward me. Thru the limbs of the trees and up the sidewalk where it poised itself behind the grill, out of sight of the back door as if it were hiding. To scared to move and looking straight ahead, it stayed there hovering about 2 feet off the ground. It finally raised and flew around the house out of sight. This ball of light had intelligence, to me it seemed to be a probe and was looking or observing something. No one believes me. If it didn't happen to them, it doesn't exist.

      Saw an orb of light come from trees to where parents cabin sits out in the country. It was white and moved swiftly not jerky or fast. It blinked constantly, almost like it was investigating the area. Once it faded out very dim to almost like a light burning out then would get very bright. It never went in the cabin just outside, something told me to look outside my window and So glad I saw this. I watched it for an hour. I was mesmerized by it. I did not feel threatened by it. When I grabbed my phone to record it, gone. It disappeared and didn't come back.

      I have seen 3 orbs with my eyes wide open. They were hovering in front of my eyes and they would become big and small. When they were big they would open into a brilliant white light and then become small. This occurred three to four times every few minutes. I believe they were the spirit orbs of my three family members who passed away a few days before and i saw this on the day of their funerals. The next day the same thing occurred but this time it was faded and moving in circular downward directions. while i saw these orbs i was covered with the blanket of one of them who had died.

      An orb is a solid or transparent "ball" of energy or light. Some parapsychologists believe that orbs are spirits, or lingering energy from deceased entities. No one truly knows what orbs are. Orbs can appear in many different shapes and colors, with white orbs being the most common.

      Not all "orbs" that appear in photographs are paranormal. In my experience, many of the orbs that appear in photographs can be explained by the flash reflecting off dust, particles, insects, or moisture droplets in the air in front of the camera.

      In my opinion, witnessing orbs with your own eyes (in person) is far more credible, and harder to debunk than mere photos of orbs.

      If you see a bright, glowing orb with your own eyes (in person, not in a photograph), there's a good chance that it may be paranormal. However, I would be very cautious when classifying orbs in photographs as paranormal – it's simply too easy for the "orbs" in a photograph to be caused by dust or moisture, reflecting off the camera lens (or the flash).

      Orb color difference is caused by the energy of the spirit who is represented by the orb. In some ghost-hunting circles, clear orbs are commonly interpreted as a sign that a spirit wants to communicate. It may want to convey that some sort of significant event occurred in that location and that it needs help getting past it.

      Orbs that are a white or silver color signify peaceful, benevolent spirits.

      White or Silver Orbs: Spiritually, white or silver is associated with spirituality and connection with a higher source. Some investigators believe orbs that are either white or silver in appearance are an indication that a spirit is trapped on this plane. It may also be a sign that the spirit is there to offer protection to the people in the area. White energy is typically perceived as highly positive in nature

      Black or brown orbs:

      . Spiritually, many feel that black or brown colors are associated with lower spiritual vibrations or heavy energy. Brown orbs are heavily connected to the earth and associated with strong, grounding spirits . Some people interpret black orbs as evil, although it isn't necessarily the case. When black or brown orbs appear, some investigators interpret them as a sign the area may be unsafe or negative in nature. Examine such a place with caution, and if you feel uncomfortable or unsafe, leave.

      From a spiritual perspective, red and orange colors are associated with safety and security, as well as a sense of belonging. While these warm colors are often associated with strong emotions such as anger and passion, this may not be the case when it comes to ghost orbs. Some paranormal investigators believe that a red or orange orb is a sign that an entity has assumed the role of a protector. This could be someone who was charged in life to keep watch or be a caretaker. Orange orbs are affiliated with belonging, safety and security. Locations with orange orbs are known to be safe, with spirits who take on a protective role.

      Red orbs give off a burning, intense energy, and could be an angry spirit who is trapped and not able to cross over. A red orb near a person could signify unresolved emotions of hurt or pain (like anger). Notice what feeling you get when you look at the red orb because this is what it means to you.

      Green orbs are strongly connected to nature and plants and mark locations as being abundant and healthy. In spiritual practice, green is associated with the heart. It is also associated with nature. Green orbs are sometimes thought to be an indication of the presence of a human spirit, as opposed to one that was never on Earth in human form. Likewise, green orbs may represent love or oneness with nature.

      Blue orbs represent psychic energy and are connected to heaven. Locations with blue orbs are known to be calming, and it is believed that spirits act as a guide in these locations.

      Pink orbs: could mean Loving, open

      Yellow orbs: could mean Hesitant, cautious

      Hope this is been of some help

      One warm, sunny, beautiful June morning in 1964, my Aunt sat me out on her porch with poster paper and finger paints. We were all alone at the farmhouse that morning, since my mother and father had left for work, my uncle was at the farm supply store and my older cousins had already been picked up by the school bus. My aunt went back inside the house to do the morning dishes or whatever…I didn’t care because I was completely absorbed with the experience of creating shapes with the vivid blue, green, red, and yellow finger paints against the white poster paper.

      At some point, I became aware of a presence, of someone watching. I looked up from my finger paints expecting to see my aunt but instead I found a brilliant white orb about the size of a softball hovering maybe 6 feet away. I watched it for a few moments, and it seemed to move slightly up, down, left, and right. I think it would be more accurate to say that its outer surface pulsed with energy – like a throbbing light energy field. Moreover, it communicated with me, telepathically, I guess, since no words were spoken, as it hovered about 3 feet above the porch floor. The message I was receiving from it was very clear in my mind and it was repeated several times: You are loved and you are special.

      I was sitting on the floor of the porch when I first saw the orb, and even though I was only 4 years old I knew this was not usual, so I was somewhat scared. But once it communicated its positive message I grew bolder. I thought it looks so beautiful and it speaks kind words – I think I’ll try to touch it. I stood up and took a step forward and it strongly communicated to me not to come closer or to attempt to touch it. Nevertheless, I took another step forward and extended my hand. It was right there! With that, the orb flew with incredible speed off my aunt’s porch and across the meadows. The house sat up on a higher elevation than the meadows so I watched it blaze down the little valley at breathtaking pace until all of a sudden it angled straight up towards the heavens until it disappeared from sight. Its departure only took a few seconds.

      I ran back into the house and told my aunt and as I’m sure you all will have guessed she didn’t believe me. She laughed and told me that I must have imagined the whole thing. My parents didn’t believe me either. I quickly learned that adults didn’t believe me so I only confided my experience to other kids. No other kids in my community (that I knew of) had this kind of experience.

      I am 57 years old, and I still don’t know what this was. I have never had another experience with orbs or anything else weird, for that matter. I have occasionally done a search on the internet about orbs to see what other experiencers think and today I decided to add my account to this blog.

      One evening walking back to house after checking our mail I saw a small sized light approaching in the night sky I would describe as the size of a basketball !

      At first I was amazed as it made absolutely no sounds at all and stopped within 100 feet about 25 feet in the air and then clear as a bell

      I saw something inside seemingly lean forward as to stare back at me as confused as

      I was and then without warning sped away at an undescribable rate of speed BUT made no sound of any kind !

      Then at some other time before I had told ANYONE about my experience I overheard my 22 year old daughter explaining to her friends, an experience that was exactly like the one I had experienced months before, to a tee like my experience!!!

      I am a believer !!!!!!!!!

      There is this round ball of light that I have noticed on the outside of my house! I first noticed the light on the side of my house near the bathroom on my security camera. Thinking maybe my camera had a spider web or something on it, I'd clean it the next morning at daylight. I didn't clean the camera but a few days later it was still there. I'm not a scary person so I didn't really think about. I always check around my when I get up early in the morning because I have to open my door to feed my cats. It was there again but in the front of my house hovering above my car. When I open my door I could not see it, but I can still see it on the camera. I am interested in this can someone tell me more about it.

      It is currently 3:36a.m. And I've been asleep since roughly 9:30p.m. Roughly 20 minutes ago (3:15) I had a strange tugging sensation in one my dream. I figured it was just my cat moving around by my feet or something along those lines so I woke up and reached down to pet him and he wasn't there. I then opened my eyes to see not even 12 inches from my face was a ball of the purest white light roughly the size of a ping pong ball. I immediately froze where I was and just watched it, transfixed by what I saw, unable to believe my own eyes. I finally got the courage to slowly move my hand towards the light to see if it was truly there or I was hallucinating but as soon as I was almost touching it it sped across the room and through the wall. I immediately got up and looked outside to see if I could see it again but there was nothing. I then went to find my phone and look up what had just happened to me and discovered this site. The only thing I can imagine was for some odd reason my guardian angel decided to show their self to me. I'm still reeling and in awe of what has occurred. If it happens again I will know for next time where I can report it and be able to possibly get some answers.

      Hi: I saw two orbs of light. This was June 11, 1999. My family and I had eaten dinner on our new deck outside. We live near an airport so there's a lot of jets, planes etc flying around. I was just relaxing looking up in the sky when I saw the orbs of light. I just thought it was a plane as the lights were moving in unison away from me when all at once they split off to the left and right. They circled around and were flying back towards my house. I ran and got my video recorder and started taping them. As I zoomed in on one the other disappeared. I saw the image of an eye in this ball of light. It finally flew away but had gotten within 200 feet from my house. It was weird because I got the feeling it knew that I was watching it.

      One Night a few years ago me and my friend were driving in to town in my not North Dakota to go pick his girlfriend up from work and when we were driving I saw a white orb in the distance that was moving very slowly in a straight line and it would go out or I mean it would damn out and then I would light back up for a few seconds and then it would demo out again and then light back up and he kept repeating and me and my friend had seen this together as we are driving down A back road and I had been up for a couple days cause I used to use meth but my friend didn't and he seen it too and my experience was a little frightening since I had been up for a while and then a few days later I was standing outside talking to my same friend in a car down the trailer park I'll and that white or appeared in the trees in someone's yard and it started coming towards me and I had still been awake so I ran home because a lot of shit in my not was tripping me out because I started noticing drones flying around all the time and it sucks now that I have read other people's experiences and they talk about it being peaceful because I am a very spiritual person and at that point in my life I was enlightened in many ways and practiced my spiritual always much more then I do now for the fact that I have a family that I take care of and I don't really have time to study like I had once and I don't mean to be disrespectful for being so blunt about what I talked about thank you very much for your story

      when i see orbs in pictures its hard to believe they are real.. the one i seen someone else was there..it was my brother and he didn't see it at all..i never knew only certain people can see orbs and others could not..

      i came out our apartment and noticed a odd light..i didn't really think nothing of it but thought my eyes were blurry from just waking up not to long ago.. i rubbed them and kept looking around to see was anything else blurry or off about my sight, and there was nothing wrong with my eyes i confirmed this way.. i then thought maybe it was a spider web catching light and flying in the wind, because of the lamps around us at the little apartment pool right by us where it was originally sighted..then it went to high and flew in patterns that couldn't be a spider web just catching light.. then i thought it must be a bug of some kind..that is until it came a few feet away..it danced around almost like a bug would but it certainly was no bug i quickly found out.. i asked my brother who's head it was swirling about to look up and if he seen this " bug" ..asking him what is it since he was closer to see and all i kept making out was light and couldn't see a body or wings.. he said he couldn't see anything and laughed like i was joking..i kept asking frustrated you can't see that? its right above your head!! its right there , your looking at it !!

      it was then i realized very quickly this was no bug..not only could my brother not see it right before his eyes but..it went through his head..not just once either.. i screamed not scared but just shocked..its going through your head!! you don't see that ?? you don't see it really??? he still didn't.. he didn't see or feel anything.. it was the second time i seen a ball of light but this one was tinny and yellowish..it danced and played almost like a bug would but in different patterns like a bug wouldn't..i don't know it is hard to explain but it flew off and up till out of sight and went very quick..proving that it was not using its max speed when floating around us like before it flew off when it did..it was my second time seeing a orb but the first was very much different ..

      ~~~~~~~~~~

      the first time i seen a ball of light was much different then the second time..it was white and big enough to maybe have a human inside..thats the size i would say , its hard to tell since most of the time it was at a distance with only trees to compare it with...

      i lived in a trailer park then and a corn field was right across the street we use to hang out and play around in..i was looking out the window alone in the living room..i never really did that but glad i randomly decided to that night.. as i was watching the sky a big white ball of light flew by right over my head in to sight.. it hovered slowly over the corn field in a straight path as lowering its self a bit..then made a left turn towards the little patch of woods there, where there was a swamp...

      it raised its self so it couldn't of been going through the trunks once it hit the wooded boundaries it was entering.. it didn't make a sound..it didn't ruffle the trees like it should or anything like anything man made should.. it hovered through the trees left then further a bit up, then right to head back out of the trees.. it moved slowly and peacefully .. then once it got back straight in my view where it hovered in to the cut corn fields.. it started to fly forward.. there was a factory being built up ahead there where it was heading and i remember it was odd because where it apparently went right through trees it went out of its way to rise and not hit the building before it went out of sight..

      what was more odd then the ball of light was what came after..i should of mentioned i was a army brat and loved flying in aircrafts ..i never seen anything like the ball of light and knew nothing that i knew about could of been something like that.. but i knew the sound of a get and helicopter very well.. and thats when i noticed just staring off about a minute or maybe a few after i heard a jet blast by, which was out of sight ... then suddenly i heard helicopters and one by one about 4 to 5 flew the same path in to sight as the ball of light had taken..

      it was very odd because we lived about 40mins-1hour away from the nearest base..i had never seen anything come by before that night or after, and we lived there a few years..it is clear they were either chasing it or being lead by it.. now that i am a adult and know our government and humanity a bit better..my adult self would suggest chasing after it..i just hope it was to study it and not hurt it in any way or capture it ...but who knows.. thats all i seen that day

      ~~

      i am not sure if this third incident counts ...it was odd and never experienced anything like this before...i was laying in bed and was wide awake..and sober i may add...my mind and eyes is the only way i can describe it was not in this reality it seemed..there was colors all over too many to name and it went by so quickly and to be honest .. i felt at home so i didn't bother looking around or had the mind to do so.. i seen in my middle point of view all these orbs of light circling what i felt was a planet..maybe ours..i felt it was home so i will say it was earth but bright light earth.. but not too bright that i couldn't see the balls of lights.. they were flowing and following paths together that encircled the planet..almost like a field i guess.. i don't know why but i felt i had to say something..to make a choice of some sort.. what i said ..was i want to help them, i want to help them all...then i snapped out of it

      it was very different then the other two.. my physical body and nothing of our reality was there.. i never meditate or believed in any of that nonsense .. but now i keep trying to get back there..not because the view was beautiful and i am curious.. but because of the feeling.. i keep thinking when was i ever the happiest in life..what was the beautifulest thing or moment ...and thats the only thing i can honestly come up with..its not that my life was so bad it was that the feeling and view and the type of being there was so good.. pure good..this happen this year last month in august 2016.. i keep trying to mediate and all these things to see anything again but nothing is working.. i keep wondering ..if i picked to stay what would of happen..could i stay?? or what?? what was it?? will it ever come again for me?? i am not sure.. but after i felt like i could take on the world and all my old projects i never had the insight on how to complete or put together like books i been working on..suddenly everything seemed so easy and clear to do.. suddenly everything in my own life seemed unthreatening and easy is the only way to describe it.. i wished everyone could feel and see what i did that day.. i wonder would it change everyone like it did me? had anyone else ever seen or been there like i went?? i am no one special is for certain..there has to be more of us...someone who knows much more then me about all this.. who are these lights? i don't feel they are threatening..i think they communicate telepathically as when i was there and spoke i heard my self but it was internal .. was i a light then too? i couldn't see my self obviously to know what i was then but i didn't feel like i was in my body is all i can explain it as..

      i tried to tell my husband but he thinks i was hallucinating ..but i will admit i have done plenty of drugs in my life when i was younger and this wasn't like that at all.. you still had your physical body there at least, and i knew when i was just seeing things and freaking out and controlled my self just fine.. this wasn't that at all..this was something else.. i am not sure if it counts in this thread but thats why for the first time i am looking up these lights..trying to find answers.. but none seem good enough.. it seems like people filling in too many blanks and lost the truth of anything they may of known or seen to me ...i don't want to fill in blanks my self..only say what i felt and seen ..i am not sure what to think..all i know is i am not crazy

      I've seen and felt it... About 8pm when I was about to take my dinner at the kicthen, beside the oven is a window. The weather was fine but all of a sudden i felt a cold ice breeze . Something that I never felt it before. Then at the windo I saw this ball of light passing by. The size is about just like basketball and 6ft away from me. And floating about 7ft. I got so scared and I couldn't even run.... But now how I wish I will see it again.

      I have had similar experience with these balls the first time I seen them I seen on come from under this tarp that was over some stuff that was on my patio. Has it came from underneath the tarp and floated up and over my patio gate. But along with that one there were two more balls of light floated and then landed on the ground and were gone. This actually happened a few times to me and how I saw them was in the screen of a baby monitor that I had facing outside of my patio. Next time that I saw this ball of light it came from the other side of the gate over into my patio. I actually recorded it one time that I seen these balls of light but it started not to freak me out though but the first time I seen this it really freaked me out.

      I saw a bright white light moving in one direction in our pasture. Needless to say I freaked out and ran in the house. I have never heard of anyone seeing such a phenomenonas this before until I was taking to someone today about it. I was floored when he said he has heard if other ppl seeing the same thing. I do not believe in paranormal, nor spirits . I believe once you leave this earth your either in heaven or hell. I do believe in angels, but angels in the bible appear like Gabriel, or Michael. So I am intrigued about this phenomenon.

      This just actually happend and was curious weather it was a meteor or falling star and decided to jump on google/ I was laying in bed facing toward the lake (lake Erie) and while I was watching band of brothers on a laptop at 3:30 am waiting to go fishing and a white ball off in the distance over the lake was falling but it fell really slow it seamed and also had some sparks comming off it almost like sparks from a sparkler kids use on the 4th of July. It was hard to tell how far off it was because it was dark and no other lights were around besides that comming from the movie. If I had to guess id say it was around 150-250 yards from the shoreline, I've seen many meteors and falling stars up here and even once a fireball that when entered into the earths atmosphere created the loudest boom noise I've ever herd or felt. This was odd to me because of the way it fell (slowly). It may have been just a falling star but it was still captivating and has me intrigued.
