I have had a "blue orb" experience, it was ten years ago next weekened.
I used to belong to a an off road motorcycle club, that owned property a few miles west of Donner summit near lake Tahoe. Club members have access to
the property whenever you want, so a riding buddy, from the bay area, met me there for a weekend of riding in the area. Saturday we spent about 10hrs
on the motos before setting up camp and having some dinner. We were both low maintenance campers, just sleeping bags and cook stove, neither had a
tent or lantern, and no fire it was fire season.
So after eating, and putting down a couple sheafs outmeal stouts, in was sitting on a rock just kinda zoning out, trying not to fall asleep, when I
noticed a odd blue glow on the ground in front of me. It was like the blue glow from a digital watch light. At the same time my buddy says, "Dude do
you see that"?, he was kickin it in his lawn chair about 15' to my left, and as I looked over to him, he was pointing at a translucent blue orb, about
a foot in diameter, hovering about 3' off the ground.
Its edges were kind of indeterminate, but it was spherical, and almost bobbed in the air slightly, and projected a "cone " of light onto the ground,
but didn't seem to light the rest of the campsite at all.
We stared at it for a few seconds before it "imploded", it didn't wisp away or move it just shrank to nothing and darkness.
I immediately looked staright up through the hole in the canopy of the trees to see the starry night sky of the high sierra, I was fully expecting to
see a UFO hovering in the sky, but alas no aliens, although I did check my watch to see if there was any lost time, if there was it was only a few
It was very weird, and when I did a web search for "Tahoe ghost lights" I came up with a few hits about people seeing blue orbs in the wilderness on
occasion, they were very prominent in the areas of the Donner expedition.
later when talking to another club member, the clubs property was very near or was the place were members of the donner party, who had set out for
sacramento to get rescuers, killed and ate their Native American guides.
