K’lee & Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: #42-Things That Go Bump In The Night

Challenge…take a photo or two of something(s) that scares us, or haunts us, or at the least- resides in our thoughts with power enough to produce a chill or quick glance over the shoulder?

The above photo was taken a few years ago. My intention was to take a few shots of the waxing moon (located in the left of the frame) with the beautiful, darkening sky. I took a few snaps consecutively, panning my camera to the right of the real moon.  What the camera picked up in the sky, is not what I saw with the naked eye.  Notice all the orbs in the sky. The first tiny one is a planet, but not the others. The photo below startled me.

That big orb is not a full moon. I did some research on orbs, but I’m still haunted by the thought, “Is it a real angel orb or just a speck of dust?”

    Those orbs are interesting. I have tried to get them to appear in my photos (using a Samsung phone), but I have not noticed any so far. I might not be doing it right or maybe there aren’t any orbs there. I have no problem with them being angels.

      Thanks Frank for your thoughts. I was photographing with my old camera at the time, a
      Canon Power Shot, so some clarity is lacking. I never got to see orbs again after that night.

      I agree that translucent, sun orbs can add interest to a photo. I’ve captured a few myself through the years, but these orbs felt different in a night time sky. I still wonder! 🙂
