Silly though this may be, I have been trying to explain to some people why the “orbs” the have captured on film is nothing more than dust or moisture on their lens.
Pictures like these are littered all over the internet as “proof” of ghosts or spirit activity. Some web sites are devoted to the idea. The photos usually show small to medium spherical balls that are about 90% transparent and are always lighter than the surrounding scene.
If these were actual objects in the scene itself they would have to be glowing to be lighter right? And if they are so transparent and emitting their own light source wouldn’t they produce shadows on other objects in the scene?
Is there a better, more technical explanation for this? I have tried showing these people that the “orbs” appear in the same exact spot on scenes shot within a sequence but to no avail.
Your help would be appreciated.
