What causes orbs on digital photos

  BillyBee 15:13 03 Jan 2004

Circles keep appearing on my digital photos, the lens is clean so it’s not that, I can take numerous photos in one session, but only one or two will have these Circles.

My wife watches “most Haunted” on Living Tv, they get orbs, (or cirlcles) on their digital cameras and believe they are ghostly apparitions, I’m just hoping they’re not. LOL

Is it a "phong" caused by sun-light?

Camera make and model?


Lighting conditions?

BillyBee, your wife is correct in assuming they are spirit. These are the essence of our souls after we have passed over.....

This could turn into an interesting thread

Got any more info??

These strange "orbs" have also been caught on 35mm film & video. Whilst technology might go along way in disproving many of them a percentage are unexplained..... For now!!!!
