You mean those glass balls Italians have in their backyard? No, I would not buy that house.

I had some great orb photos. I created them by vigorously shaking a bath towel and using my camera with flash right after...I mean -- right after... I shook with one hand, and held the powered up and ready to go camera in the other hand.

They were on my old computer. Didn't bother to save. And since they were so good, I've discounted ALL orb pictures. Even when the Dude-Bro guys say unequivocally these orbs can't be dust because dust doesn't do that? Yeah, it does...it's dust.

Dude-Bro guys? ghost adventurers.

Yeah, my first thought was that the "orbs" was just due to bad photography. Not supernatural beings.

Why do people think orbs are supernatural beings?
serious question.

Absotively! For one thing, the property will be a bargain due to the somewhat disturbing phenomena.

For another, you'll be able to capitalize on it. Charge admission! Start a YouTube channel, a Twitter account, and a live webcam. Get interviewed by nationally syndicated programs.

Monetize the heck out of it, then move elsewhere and live in the lap of luxury.

While most orbs are just dust, ghost orbs have a definitive edge to them. The edges are well defined and have a border around them. And a glow of white or golden light emitting from them. While many are intense white, some come in colors like pink, green, blue and yellow. And have faces inside them. The one's i have seen have cat faces. I used to think they were time travelers of a sort, which would make sense because of the faces. Maybe from Planet Cat somewhere in the galaxy far far away.

Some of the intense white orbs I have seen, always at night for some reason, sometimes a big long streak of thick white light comes out, flying around the room. Those are freaky. When they fly by, they create a breeze. As for buying a house with ghost orbs or not, there are some realtors now that will let you spend the night to see if the house is a good fit before you buy. You could set up a night camera's to see if you capture anything while you are sleeping. Then you can make up your own mind if you still want the house or not.

I don't know when, or why, but I became aware that orbs were now proof of spirit "common knowledge" in the early 2000's. That's when I started playing with my camera.


I think people so want real photographic evidence of ghosts that they created one. Maybe someone went to the local haunted cemetery and took photos and voila!!! Orbs. Since the place it haunted, and we were invoking spirit, ipso facto, orbs must be spirit.


When in fact, it could be breezy, and people are walking around stirring up dust and pollen... and ...we take photographic evidence of dust and pollen.


Could be a million reasons.
