My Friends,

ultimate-orb1I believe that I may have photographed one of the best Orb Photos ever taken. It has depth, measurable distance away from the camera lens, located inside a house while I was on the outside, and the Orb is large. I took this photo Thursday afternoon. I believe that is has everything that is needed to dispel that Orbs are nothing more than just a flying bug, a dust particle, moisture, or an illusion. The Orb is visible without zooming in, but to see the details I point out in this e-mail, it is best to zoom in…

My wife and I are building a new home, about 85% complete. I arrived alone at the house around 6:30 pm on April 14, 2005. I chatted with some of the workers for 30 minutes or so, then went inside the house and locked it up after they had departed. I checked every room in the house before I locked the doors just to be on the safe side. There was absolutely no one in the house when I locked the doors…

ultimate-orb2I walked slowly around the house looking at it one more time, then I headed to my car to drive back to where we are living now while the house is being built, then I suddenly got a feeling to take some photos around the outside of the house. I grabbed one of my digital cameras, a new Cannon G-6, 7 mega pixels. I began taking photos first around the front and side of the house, then made my way around to the back of the house. Out of 33 total photos taken, 8 were of the back of the house and around the back of the house and around the pool house. After I had taken one of the eight photos I heard what sound like footsteps inside the house, plus what sounded like someone moving one of the metal portable heaters across the floor. Since I knew that no one was in the house, I figured it was just one of my ghost buddies fooling around. After this thought, I suddenly got the feeling to take some photos directly of the back of the house where I heard the noises in the hope that maybe I could catch an image of what made the noises. I did, and when I returned home and loaded the photos into my computer, it was then that I saw the Orb…

ultimate-orb3The large window you see divided into three sections and the door to the left, open into the family room. The back porch you see in the photo is 16 feet deep at this point. The yellow tape is to keep people off the back porch while the stamped epoxy covering the subfloor concrete dries. I am standing 2 to 3 feet away from the porch taking the photo. The Orb before zooming in is rather hard to see off hand. I missed seeing it the first time around, then saw it a few minutes later when I was taking a more detailed look at each individual photo by zooming in…

Each window and door in the house is custom built. Each piece of glass in the large window and door is a separate pane of glass, separated by the wooden mullions, pronounced mull-uns. The Orb is located in the middle section of the large window between the 1st and 2nd lateral mullion from the bottom on the lower half of the window. The Orb is large enough to be seen through two separate panes of glass with a mullion obscuring almost the dead center of the Orb in a vertical line…

The key points for this Orb not being a dust particle, a bug, moisture or an illusion are these…

The first key point…

The distance I am standing away from the Orb…16 feet depth of back porch at this point, I am standing 2 to 3 feet away from the back porch, the outside walls of the house is built with 2 x 6’s, then the thickness of the brick, minus the window center to the width of the wall…places me 19 to 20 feet away from the Orb…

The second key point…

The vertical mullion dividing the Orb almost dead center and obscuring the center of the Orb, places the Orb without any doubt whatsoever inside the house…

The third key point…

The AC/heating system has not been connected to any of the three main breaker boxes. All windows are double pane and sealed, and every window in the house was locked. Three doors leading to three separate attic spaces were shut, as was every outside door shut and locked. The dampers are closed on the two wood burning fireplaces in the house, and the vent for the gas fireplace in the kitchen is shut. I was the last person in the house, and when I took this photo I had been out of the house for a good 40 minutes. So all in all, the house was shut up tighter than a drum. Any dust particles I stirred up locking the house should have settled by the time I took the photo…

The fourth key point…

A minute or so before I took this photo I heard the distinctive sound of footsteps walking across the floor and something metal being dragged across the floor…

The fifth key point…

Of the 33 photos taken around the outside of the house, 20 of the photos had Orb in them, and each of these photos had multiple Orbs of various size and brilliance…

The skeptics and debunkers, no matter what proof they see in my photo, will still say that the Orb is either a flying bug, dust particles, moisture, or an illusion. If the Orb is a flying bug or dust particle, then either one would have to be about 8 to 10 inches in diameter. If it is just a drop of moisture and it was falling because no water droplet that big can hover in midair, then part of my hardwood floor in the family room will be ruined. If it is just an illusion caused by the camera, the lens, the lighting or whatever, then I want the skeptics and the debunkers to explain to me how a mullion separating two panes of glass can obscure the center of an illusion.
