According to Miceal Ledwith, co-author of The Orb Project, "orbs neither reflect, absorb or scatter light, but instead fluoresce.They produce their own light source. When photon energy is discharged from the flash of your camera, the orb absorbs the energy. Its molecules are excited and the orb expands, then contracts and releases this energy as low infrared light. This infrared light is captured on your camera.
Ledwith came to this conclusion after realizing that the orbs he photographed in the shape of a hexagon could have only been made if the orb was actually emitting its own light. The shape was caused by the leaves of the
shutter as it closed, cutting off the light source.The shapes you may get can be different from the hexagon shape as each camera manufacturer may have a different configuration of leaves on their shutter."
The orbs below are captured in digital photos at varying states of fluorescence and movement. I believe that we happen to catch what look like light tubes because our shutter stays open just long enough to capture all the light expelled during an orb's high speed movement as opposed to an orb being long or stretched or coming through some sort of a vortex tube. The orb I witnessed with my naked eye in 2007 left a trail of light as it zipped along much like that of a sparkler that you twirl on the Fourth of July. (An example can be seen below in the picture of the pug on the couch staring at the traveling orb.)
The tubes that look as if there are multiple orbs in them are caused when our camera catches the low wave infrared light emitted as the orb either flashes in and out of existence in our dimension or expels its energy in waves much like a blinking stop light, only at a very high rate of speed to be captured in the fractions of a second it takes for the camera shutter to open and close.
Large, bright white orb in full fluorescence. The square orb below is cause by the shutter.
These were taken with a Sony NEX 3. As you can see two have an oval shape
cause by the shutter leaves. Orbs are generally round, not oval.
Large traveling bright white orb, a medium orb and a small orb near the urn.
They are the same kind my nephew is trying to capture in his hands on the Orbs and People page.
Large wispy orbs- I have found these to generally be slow moving.
Notice the wispy orb in the doorway while I have on
Beyond Worlds, Orbs: The Veil is Lifting, with a picture of an orb on the TV screen.
You can see the concentric circles
Large traveling wispy orb.
Small wispy orbs with others during a daylight shot.
Could these be releasing smaller orbs from inside?
Large solid white orbs on the move-
These are bright white orbs captured as they travel.
Notice the thin moving orb at the bottom left.
Fast Moving Orbs
Large orbs in motion.
Small orb in motion with wispy orbs. Stationary orb, orb in motion, slow moving orb
Small orb in motion with some wispy orbs. You can really see the small orb
shapes throughout and assume that there are multiple orbs when it is actually
a single orb's energy pulse that was captured as it zipped by.
