PostSubject: Orbs - Discuss this modern day phenomena   Tue Feb 24, 2009 8:00 am

The term orb describes unexpected, typically circular artifacts in photographs. Sometimes the artifact leaves a trail, indicating motion.

Orbs or Orb when referred to in the paranormal sense has been broadly interpreted as a highly variable range of paranormal phenomenon without verifiable causation — including as otherwise invisible spirits, auras, angels, ghosts, energy fields, psychoenergetic artifacts, energy balls.

(Technical note: The technical photographic term for the occurrence of orbs, especially pronounced in modern ultra-compact cameras, is backscatter, orb backscatter or near-camera reflection).

It is notable that the detection and image capture of orbs has dramatically increased since the advent of Digital Photography.
Due to the size limitations of the modern compact and ultra-compact digital cameras, the distance between the lens and the built-in flash has decreased, thereby decreasing the angle of light reflection to the lens and increasing the likelihood of light reflection off normally sub-visible particles.
Hence, the orb artifact is more commonplace with small digital camera photographs.

The orb artifact can also result from reflection of light off solid particles (e.g., dust, pollen), liquid particles (water droplets - especially rain) or other foreign material within the camera lens.

The image artifacts usually appear as either white or semi-transparent circles, though may also occur with whole or
partial color spectrum, purple fringing or other chromatic aberration.

With rain droplets, an image may capture light passing through the droplet creating a small rainbow effect.
Underwater photographers notice the effect also, which occurs for the same reason as above-water photographic artifacts.
Sand, small sea life or other particles close to the lens, invisible to the diver, reflect light from the flash causing the orb artifact in the image.
A strobe flash, which distances the flash from the lens, eliminates the artifacts.
