Pictures taken within a few seconds; same camera
position; a different orb is shown in the right picture at a
different location. Right image was electronically enhanced.
This is how it got started: We took the above
photographs in September 2004 at a spiritual retreat. The
exposures were just a few seconds apart. There was no change in
camera settings or lighting in the room. The bright mandala-like
feature in the left picture, and the less luminous circular
feature in the right image at the top of the triangle were not
observable with the bare eye in the room.
Thousands of orb photos later, and extensive research on the subject, I have come to the following explanations of the phenomenon.
Current Results and Working
Orbs are not explainable with conventional physics (Authenticity of Orb Photos )
They are emanations from intelligent life outside of the conventional physical realm
They are abundantly around us (but we must use discernment) (Example of Artefactual Orbs )
They have different intensities (some require digital image enhancement to be clearly clearly visible)
They can move extremely fast ( possibly at unlimited speed )
They move in discrete steps ( possibly Quantum-steps )
They have individualistic features and may have "faces"
They appear to show with facial features primarily to those who are inclined to see them
They -- i.e., the beings they emanate from -- can follow instructions (Stereo-Photography with Orbs )
They appear to be highly intelligent
They can expand (possibly to infinite size) and contract (possibly to atomic size) extremely fast
Their intelligence and ability of extreme contraction and expansion at infinite speeds allows for the hypothesis that they may be instrumental in certain aspects of alternative/spiritual healing
Thought projections look similar to orbs (Photos of Orbs and Thought Projections)
They appear to want to communicate to us through their appearance and location in photos
Their messages appear to be benevolent and helpful to individual people and mankind at large
The results are summarized in these books:

Boy asked orb to appear in same size as paining of
moon on paper on floor -- two orbs appeared, one in
approx. size of small, the other of large axis
Below Left: Boy positions two
tennis balls as "eyes" for a smiley face, then removes
one ball and requests for an orb to take
Right: An orb follows the invitation.
