Spirit Orb Photos

Photos and Description of Orbs in Photos

What are Spirit Orbs?

"...the angels have long said that they would give us physical proof of their presence and now they have done so through the Orbs."

- Diana Cooper

An orb is a sphere or shape of light that appears in photographs and videos. Sometimes these light phenomena have logical explanations and earthly origins; but, when they do not, these orbs are spiritual beings (i.e. angels, spirit guides and departed loved ones). To see our collection of photos, or to share yours, please visit our Facebook album.


Orbs are most often spherical, but other shapes have been recorded. These include, but aren't to limited to, diamonds, mists, and humanoid forms.


Many orbs contain intricate, beautiful patterns within. Ones with these patterns are more apt to be a spirit lightbody.


The colour of an orb is most often white, but again, many colours have been recorded, and each has its own meaning or origin.

Where to Find Orbs

Orbs are most likely to appear in photos where many people are gathered, or where historic events occurred. Check out your digital photographs for evidence of angels, guides and departed loved ones. Then compare your findings with the information contained here to see who has been visiting you.

  • Photo Albums: Look at your existing photos and at other peoples' photo albums...chances are, you will spots orbs.
  • Happy Gatherings: Angels and departed loved one particularly love happy events such as weddings, holiday parties and family reunions.
  • Near Children and Pets: Children and animals are very pure of spirit, and so they naturally attract light beings. 
  • Historic Sites: Any place that's steeped in history, or which contains many historic artefacts, may attract non-corporeal humans.
  • Spiritual Places: Sacred places and religious structures are often home to multiple orbs.

How to Photograph Orbs

The best way to photograph orbs is with a digital camera, but SLR cameras also work. Set your intention to photograph orbs, and then keep your vibration light by singing, laughing, breathing deeply, walking in nature, listening to uplifting music, or whatever techniques work best for you. Release all expectations, and do not put pressure on yourself or on the spirit world. Just be patient. You may have to do this several times before you find an orb, but have faith it will work!

Non-Spiritual Orbs

It's wise to rule out obvious causes first before concluding that your photo contains a spiritual orb. True orbs have no Earthly explanation. When all logical explanations have been ruled out, it is probably safe to conclude that the orb or light apparition is spiritual in nature.

Typical False Flags

  • Light Refraction: Photographs taken in the sun, lamps and even candles, can often show orbs and prisms of colour which are not the same in origin as a spiritual orb.
  • Reflective Surfaces: Light from your camera's flash can reflect off shiny surfaces such as mirrors or even hardwood floors. These false readings may appear orb-like, but are not indicative of a spiritual being's presence.
  • Airborne Particles: Your flash may also highlight particles in the air such as dust or pollen; smoke or or moisture such as raindrops and snowflakes.
  • White Opaque Orbs: Most non-spiritual orbs are solid or translucent white. They lack the intricate patterns that are the hallmark of authentic spirit orbs.
