Orbs / lightspheres on digital photos

(Nov 07: for new amazing pictures scroll down to the end!)

Orbs are lightspheres that appear on digital photos.

Newsletter for digital fotographie say this: „Orbs are oil- or waterdrops close to the lense. They are so close that they cannot be seen sharp any more, that is was causes the funny structur.“

As often as they seem to appear (I got many many via email when I asked for them), that seems likely on one hand.  But when I look at some of my pictures I am not certain. Look at the pictures made in London June 2007 down below for example. One orb is partly hidden behind a kind of balcony. If it was a waterdrop it would be a pretty big one…

Plus, when they move, they do not look much like waterdrops either. Have a look at the pictures further down.

Also it is strange that some healers and channels say they can see them with their bare eyes as well. I have not seen them yet with my bare eyes. So it is hard to tell for me.

And there is more. Some light-phenomenon on picutres are in very interesting shape. Have a look at one here and see two more also in my magazine: Amazing pictures

Maybe we should just enjoy the phenomenon whatever they are in the end. Being joyful about it can never be wrong. Lächelnd

I am still going to have a look around for more amazing pictures. I already saw some very impressive ones and I am trying to get the data and permission to put them online as well.

Oct.07: I just got a hint from a reader that there is a book about orbs. The authors are convinced that there is a spiritual phenomena behind it. I just ordered the book but have not got it yet. The title is  The Orb Project Klaus Heinemann (Author), Miceal Ledwith (Author)

So here is some orbs. Take a look at them and decide for yourself what they might be.


Details of orb-pictures:


And this one has been takes during a workshop in a fairyforest (that is the name of the forest there) high up in the mountains in switzerland. It is certainly not an orb. What else can it be? Decide for yourself and enjoy it. And don’t miss the others here: Amazing pictures




For the following pictures I sprayed first water and then a spray with etheric oils 50 centimetres away from my lense (I tried diffrent distances with the spray). I did get orb-like balls. Are they the same? Decide for yourself.



When I send these pics to a good friend who too believes in the orb-energy-sphere-theorie he made another test. He sat down, meditated and called for orbs to come. He took five pictures. And between the forth and fifth he started humming to strenghten the energy. And really the next picture he took one minute later was showing brighter orbs. See below. The interesting thing for me is the size of his orbs plus that they stayed in the same place for several minutes. Drops of water certainly cannot stay in the same place in the air. And when he started the experiment, there was nothing to be seen at all on the first pic. So where do his lightspheres come from? Maybe you want to do some experiments too?





Good bye waterdrop-theory…

Lara is a very young reader and I know her quite a while now. Her parents did some „orb-pictures“ already (the once we do not really know of what they are) when one day a visible light-sphere appeared right in front of Lara’s face. She could hardly believe her eyes. She ran to find her camera and took a picture of the sphere still flying in front of her face. The expression of her face is still full of wonder and of course since she is holding the camera herself it is too close and the face looks a bit funny. In reality she is a pretty little girl.

You can see the light-sphere very clearly in the picture.

I think the mystery around these orbs/spheres and sometimes waterdrops gets just more and more interesting… It surely is fun!


In October 2007 there was a whole conference about orbs in California. Unfortunatly I do not know anybody who was there.

I just wait for the book that I ordered about it to come. The authors were at that conference. Here all the informations about it:

Book: The Orb Project Klaus Heinemann (Author), Miceal Ledwith (Author)


Palm Springs Convention Center
Palm Springs, California

Can we now prove the existence of Spirit?

According to Klaus Heinemann, Ph.D., who served as Professor of Research in Materials Science at Stanford University and who does research in space science for NASA, the answer is definitely YES.

Dr. Heinemann says -The presence of orbs is irrefutable evidence in hundreds of thousands of photographs taken by thousands of people all over the world, and the suggestion that an overwhelming fraction of these light circles are nothing less than emanations from Spirit beings has turned into a solid working hypothesis.

What was once dismissed out of hand as nonsense and digital camera anomalies is now being seriously researched by scientists such as Professor Heinemann and Stanford Professor Emeritus William A. Tiller and the results are astonishing. After experimentally eliminating photographic artifacts such as dust or moisture, the so called orbs are now being accepted as something real. Orb experiments are showing that the round discs react to conscious thought and that they often appear when called.

Many people report strong feelings that orbs are the spirits of departed loved ones. Others feel them to be conscious luminous energy that quickly moves in and out of our perceived dimension of reality. Some believe them to be ET observers. Whatever they are they tend to be seen at festive celebrations, spiritual and religious ceremonies and often at sites considered to be sacred and holy. Many feel they are spiritual guides. They tend to appear often with children and animals and in loving settings. While many think of them as ghosts.

During the weekend of October 26-28 there will be a conference dedicated to the subject of orbs and beings of light taking place in Palm Springs, California which will bring together scientific researchers and spiritual theorists to flesh out this mysterious but widely observed phenomenon.

Professors Heinemann and Tiller will present their conclusions along with distinguished theologian and former president of Maynooth College in Ireland Dr. Miceal Ledwith. They will be joined by Shelley Yates who, from her experience and guidance with a light being, organized a worldwide event in July called Fire The Grid which brought together hundreds of thousands of people focusing on gratitude. Others include Hope & Randy Mead whose experiences are documented in their newly released film Orbs: The Veil Is Lifting. Also attending will be Freddie Silva whose research into the orbs and the authenticity of crop circles is classic in the genre. Rancher James Gilliland, whose film shot at his Oregon ranch proves interesting and insightful, will be there to talk of his amazing experiences. Joining them will New York professional photographer Nancy Burson along with three authors and researchers from the U.K., Jude Currivan, Ph.D., an internationally well-known scientist, and Katie Hall & John Pickering artists, writers and researchers.

Professors Ledwith and Heinemann will be introducing their collaborative book The Orb Project, newly published by Beyond Words Publishing.

Orbs: „We are surrounded by a cloud of witnesses“ will be the topic of Dr. Heinemann’s Palm Springs presentation.

In addition to the topic of authenticity, he will be presenting results of his ongoing quest into the orb phenomenon in the following areas:
  • mobility (speed of motion, expansion, contraction of orbs)
  • individuality („faces“ of orbs; communication with orbs)
  • the hypothetical role of orbs in Spiritual healing
  • In spite of the enormous numbers of orb pictures showing in the photos of increasing numbers of people from all walks of life, we are collectively only at the tip of the iceberg in understanding what this all means.

    The implications of a realization that we are „surrounded by a cloud of witnesses“ are enormous — and incredibly hopeful. The final segment of the presentation will convey this message in a thought provoking interplay of audio and visual impressions.

    November 2007

    A reader send in this link: http://www.mastersconnection.com/community/orbs/index.php?

    There is about 60 pages with pictures. Its worth surching them. I found these two for example. Of course you never know if they are real if you haven’t takem them yourself…

    (did you noticed there are 2 faces hidden in this orb?!)
