"Why is this site/group anti-orb?"


We are and we're not.

The group, as a whole, cannot say we are "for or against" anything in general.

We do, however, concede that the majority of editorials and notes on photographic anomalies do seem to tend to the negative with orbs but that is because the majority of photographic experts and amateurs seem to agree that the orb phenomenon can be misconstrued far too easily. Pollen, dust, water, and insects may NOT be immediately visible to the naked eye but to the camera's flash, they will appear as orbs.

To address the "flashlight testing" that I've had a few e-mails about.

The idea that a few folks suggested was to shine a flashlight into the area you're about to take a picture of and look in the beam for particles that could corrupt the photo. The idea is, if the "tester" doesn't see any particles, all orbs, mists and vortex-like things MUST be anomalous.

Apparently, according to three of our photographic folks here at the GHRS, you would need two to four million candle power to produce the intensity of a flash of a camera and then you'd still have to allow for dust, pollen, moisture and insects that might after the tests come into the frame.

Also, after speaking to an optometrist, we discovered other flaws with this. The main one would be not allowing your eyes to adjust to a bright light of such a flashlight. The average person would need to expose their eyes to the light for about three to five minutes which, according to our expert, would damage the cornea and iris of an eye badly. Basically, the doctor we spoke to did not recommend this.

Also, you may not see particles that tiny even with a flashlight that the lens will see as the lens could be literally milimetres from the particles that produce orbs and anything that small as close to your eyes would be "focused out" by the optic nerve.

Therefore, the only accetable means of trying to capture anomalous orbs is to simply try, keep track of enviromental issues as best as possible and realise that this is not and should not be accepted as "evidence of ghosts".

Unless guaranteeing a 100% dust-free, enclosed, sealed, room that produced an orb, most serious researchers will not absolutely say that a photo of an orb is a ghost.

There is also another thing... 99.999999% of all orb photos are in the foreground of the picture. Our director has openly asked for images of orbs that are visibly half-obscured by a solid object. So far, none have come to light.

Please, if interested in "Orbs" and "Mists", read through our document The Final Orb
