Orbs Gather for Full Moon

The full moon often draws us into the night to photograph the sky. I found this lovely pink orb while out with the moon a couple of nights ago.

 The moon is the bright light cradled in the trees. I thought you might enjoy the movement of the orb across from the moon, and the way the pinkish orb is perched on the tree in the center.

Last night the moon was slower to rise, but the orbs were waiting patiently.

In fact, I want you to realize just how dense our sky can be with flying orbs.

I’m experimenting with different densities of brightness and contrast to reveal the orbs.

Practically a blizzard of orbs grace our skies.

Inspired by the moon, an orb outshines the crowd.

I encourage you all to seek the orbs outside your doors in the night. It’s just a pretty sight to discover who floats through your neighborhood.

For those of you who are new to this blog, or would like to refresh your memory as to what orbs are, perhaps this will help: https://orbsdelight.wordpress.com/2012/11/17/photographing-orbs/


About orbphotog

Born in the West, I studied photography and painting at the School of Visual Arts in New York City before being drawn back home to the open skies of western living. My camera is always close at hand to capture changing light and to record what catches my eye. However, it is my recent discovery of being able to see orbs through the medium of digital photography that has sparked my passion for photographing the night. All photographs in this blog are copyrighted by me. Occasional photos by guests are copyrighted by the photographer. Please contact if you would like to order prints.

    • Your appreciation is always a welcome gift, Uzoma. I don’t know if the orbs are healing. They did attend a sound therapy session and position themselves at the crown, third eye, and heart, so perhaps they were participating. Since orbs are not the spiritual being, but simply the emanation, according to scientist, Klaus Heinemann, perhaps they are the invisible hands that my clients often feel during Reiki sessions….


    • Thank you for your comment, Sue. I am using a Canon G12 that is simply set at auto with flash for orb photography. You will want to use a camera that has a CCD sensor, which are most cameras under $500. The upper grade CMOS sensor tends to censor out most of the orbs. Glad to know your sister is doing well with her phone camera. My iphone4s isn’t as effective as my Canon.
