A guide to Orbs

This is a guide to the natural causes of orbs.

Dust Orbs caused by traffic. I took notice of being able to see the dust particles in the air that was iluminated by the flash.

This is one of the weird orbs I have taken picture of and still in the process of searching for a cause. As you can see it is a solid sphere shaped orb that is hanging in mid air. I have not known why the camera has focused on it, nor do I know as the exact cause.

2nd Orange orb caught, still single anomaly and still no answer to its cause. Most orbs I have come across is translucent in nature only a few are solid but this is the second sphere shaped I have seen.  

Logically single orbs are harder to disprove. Any one may claim that it is a dust particle or skin flake, or even a bug. But since when do we see a single particle of dust, skin flake, or single insect. But notice there are lots of reflective surfaces and chances are it could be light flair from the vehicle, and as you can see the flash goes beyond the vehicle which makes me believe that it is light intersecting at one point.

This is the first Orb I caught with a digital camera, as you can see it's single and appears to have motion.

But what it looks like to me is a lens flair, where the street light meets the light of the flash to create the orb and the light reflects beyond the curb which makes me believe that light bouncing off the curb reflected back at the camera at an upward angle gave a secondary light source giving the perspective of movement.

Lens Flair the other culprit to Orbs.

Lens Flair are more common in photo's where there is other light sources around in front of the photographer

Although nearly invisible to the naked eye light tend to brighten where light intersect, giving a 2 dimentional light source. Add a third light source( IE. Camera flash ) from another angle gives this cross sections a 3rd dimention which iluminates from center of cross section and radiates outward. Giving the orb a nucleus. 

To the right is an enlargement of this anamoly.

Some would say it 's a bug, but take into consideration the distance between the camea and the actual anamoly. Can bugs really reflect light at that distance, if so then do we have bugs of that size? The answer is yes, we have what is called a bat moth in Hawaii with wing spans of 6 to 8 inches. Now lets look at what other aspects would help to prove our theory that it is natural in origin. The tree is surrounded by shrubs with an empty lot in back, to the right is a road with dense trees beyond it, that is used as a wild life sanctuary.Last of all there is a street light directly in front of it which is known to attract nocturnal insects.
