Anomaly #1 Apparitions
An apparition is an extremely rare image of a ghost that somehow came up on camera. This is
probably the strongest objective evidence of a haunting and the biggest prize for paranormal investigators. Many times these
images aren't seen with the naked eye and show up later on film.
Anomaly #2 Orbs and Globules
The orb phonomenon is in full swing! People are sending us orb pics from all over the country! Orbs
from weddings, family functions, cemetaries, concerts, museums, and even pets. Recently Al found one from his aunt's Las Vegas
vacation photos! They primarily appear on digital cameras, but not always.
Ghosthunters are divided about these things,
some believe orbs and globules are the energy of the deceased that can't be seen with the naked eye but show up on film and
cameras. They can be blue, red or any color, which some believe to be the personality of the entity. Often orbs have a thick
outline around them and are caught in motion.
The other aspect of orbs is that they are simply dust particles that
reflect off a flash camera: Nothing ghostly, just an illumation from a flash.
It's hard to tell the difference. We
have dozens of orb pics, but we don't put them all up. You've seen them before ha ha! Chances are they're dust and particles.
However we do have some questions for both sides of the argument. If they're really orbs, then..
Why do they seem to show
up in any environment?
Why are they primarily on digital cameras?
Why aren't they ever seen with the naked eye?
However, if it's just dust, we have these questions:
Why so often is just one in the
Why do they seem mainly to hover around people, and rarely shot right on the person covering up their face or
How can they be recorded on nightshot film, and move in ways that defy the current or breeze, stay still or appear
out of nowhere and just vanish? We have footage of orbs zipping around almost like they have a mind of their own. Hopefully
we'll get that footage up on-line.
Anyway, here's some great links that may help with the orb phemonenon:
Amomaly #3: Mist
Mist is difficult. Some believe its energy attempting to form into an appiriton.
It's believed to be the in-between or an orb and an appirition. The energy starts with a ball, and when attempting to
form an apparition, the energy needs to expand and retract to form into what it's consciously attempting to be.
is also simply seen as what it is, mist. Humid weather, breath in cold air, cigarette smoke and radiator steam are all mistaken
as apparitonal mist from time to time. The big question about mist is why it appears indoors when no one is smoking?
Anomaly #4 Vortexes
A vortex can be seen as several things in the ghost realm, it can be seen as an orb in motion or
a trail of an orb. Think of a comet. When an orb moves quickly, it is reputed to leave a trail behind it. The picture below
is considered a vortex. Its a stream, its solid and seems to be a trail in one direction.
Here below is an example of a phony vortex. A vortex-looking image can also be completely natural, often a camera strap or
something blowing around that got in front of the camera. The object in the upper left is simply a cathair from Al's white
cat Dolly that came too close to the lens.
