2 Cemetary Orbs....?!
Posted By: Christopher M.W.T, 11-16-2009, 06:34 PM

Ok not sure who here actually believes in this or not, I am somewhat skeptical of the so-called ghost orb photos. However I thought i'd wander down to the cemetary at night lastnight with a friend and snap a few photos.

I took around 50-60 and didn't really get anything of interest except in these two photos.

Top right hand corner. Had to enhance the photo slightly to bring it out.

This one is pretty obvious

I did capture quite a few photos with dust and the dust was very very different to these two things.

Any thoughts i'd love to here some other opinions.

Quite possibly you caught a couple of flying insects out of focus.

I thought about that, however I was not able to replicate it with any other shots.

Wikipedia has an interesting article on them:

Those look like the photo used to illustrate a dust orb to me.
