Hi ATS,

I wanted to share my recently finished paper. It's a review of the colour distribution of five hundred sphere and orb UFO reports collected from NUFORC.

Colour Distribution of 500 Reports of Spheroid UAP

I figured it would do well here.

Cheers!

Orbs are life forces and take many appearances so people are
confused. A small multi-colored orb might arrive by electric
lines or congregate with many orbs in a field.

Confusion arises because of denial or ignorance and a lot are
classified as ball lightning or some such phenomenon.

Excellent digging in now.


I've had my own eye-opening up-close and personal OBOL experience. It's what led me to ATS eventually.

I was 14 and on a 5-day camp-out with about 20 other Boy Scouts in the foothills of Lookout Mtn in Alabama 20+ years ago. 4 of the 5 days were spent in a relatively safe & easygoing pasture of a scout-friendly citizen. We had some badge classes and spent a lot of our leisure time in fierce competitions of mumblety-peg.

But one night we went to camp in the "mountains," better described as large foothills. After dinner we broke off in pairs and cliques and explored the various trails leading to the top which I estimate to be around 600 ft and situated among many foothills of similar size.

Two scouts had remained at the top longer than the rest of us and it was rather late in the evening when I and a friend were meandering a trail and talking near the top when the two scouts up top called down to us in very excited voices to come up that they had just seen a ufo. We scrambled up to the top and the two scouts indicated an adjacent and taller mount and said they saw a big glowing orange ufo land there.

I was skeptical, but was intrigued by how excited they were, cutting each other off in their zealousness to describe what they saw. We settled in and continued talking all the while steadily looking at the adjacent mount top.

Maybe 20 minutes passed when there appeared a brilliant double-flash that emanated from and illuminated the top of the peak, a second of darkness, and then maybe 100 ft over the tree tops "it" pulsed into life. Perspective wise, I would say it was about high-moon size in appearance.

At full pulse it looked like liquid metal or 'plasma' swirling around inside. Then it would dim at about the same speed it lit. It would dim to nothing. We couldn't see anything and then a good bit higher in the sky it would pulse to light again a few seconds later. Not counting the double-flash of the apparent lift-off it lit and dimmed 6 times, each time higher in the sky and after the 6th nothing. We watched for a long time, but that amazing glimpse was over but for the heavy-duty questions it raised in me.

It was a clear night and a clear phenomena of some kind. I was an Air Force brat that never missed a Blue Angels show or an opportunity to witness various test-flights. I knew it wasn't flares and it doesn't fit with any description of ball lightning that I've come across. Conventional craft was out of the question because of characteristics and size.

Even at that age, I knew what we saw couldn't be easily explained. Since the internet came along, I've searched for folk who have seen the same thing and have now found quite a few.

Excellent historical research that includes many Orbs:

If I'd seen a ufo like you I'd want to get it off my chest too.

Wow your recollection just brought back an experience I had.
About 18 years ago I was outside having a smoke at a buddies house. It was just after midnight, pitch black, out int he country side.
We have a lot of mountains around here.
We were smoking and chatting when we both seen what looked like a ball of fire slowly moving across the face about halfway up the mountain.

It also was about the size of the moon and Glowing orange.

At first I thought it was a forest fire.
It was so far away, so it was nearly impossible to make out any details, other than it being large and orange.
It eventually moved out of site behind another mountain.
I have no idea what it could have been.
A complete mystery.

Interesting. So what do you think is responsible for the color of the orbs.

Bremsstrahlung, cerenkov, electron heating or cooling?

You know, I couldn't tell you. I scrounge and sort the data, and I'm not the most knowledgeable physcist. I will look into those terms and give it some thought.

Do you have an idea for the particular distribution of colours? If you know lots about physics, can you theorize as to why orange is so prevalent?

The sphere I saw looked like a ball of Mercury.

Typically we view these as craft given their size and distance. Have there ever been abduction accounts where the spheres are smaller than a person and interacted with them or communicated with them. Just like a typical encounter with a bipedal alien only with a small ball of light or a ball that shines light. (I don't mean Corey Goodes blue sphere stuff but the balls of light. )

Yes. Youre looking at plasma. The vehicle is surrounded by a sheath of plasma.

The atmosphere is mostly nitrogen and oxygen. Ionized nitrogen gas glows a red to yellow color. Ionized oxygen gas glows a pale yellow color. The combination of the two makes for a orange color.

Electron cooling at low altitude will cause solid red colors too. At very high altitude a solid green color. If its electron heating im not entirely sure but its the opposite. Green at low altitudes and red at high..

If I was an ignorant white guy my God an Santa would be white an vice versa. And yet if I was God, I couldn't care what you think, especially if I change colours pike they were clothes...or would I? Hell I could be red, all the way to black an blue.

Orange...what could I interpret from seeing orange at night. Maybe it a prison uniform an it screaming shoot me or "Construction over head". If I was red I could be danger, or obstacle in your path where if I were black I'd be spooky.

That doesn't make any sense when I've seen them, all different colours just next to us, red, blue green yellow silver, orange, all in pairs. Not miles up but just above ground, all different colours. Interesting theory there, but it doesn't match with reality

That account of the "brilliant double-flash" is amazing. That is something that often occurs when orbs are about to be seen. The swirling you mention, it's almost like a gyroscope. As you say they light up the more they swirl and fade out when this slows down. Maybe this has something to do with colours but it's like those colours are often seen in same coloured matching pairs. They usually stay in same coloured pairs even when in mass groups of mixed colours.

Well silver could be plasma in the daylight. Along with white. White yellow.

Cerenkov radiation looks like a matte greyish powder blue to whitish silvery blue. Blue again could be cerenkov or bremmstrahlung effects.

Oxygen in bremmstrelung is a silvery blue to almost xenon color.

Oranges just plain old plasma from ionized nitrogen and oxygen.

Red could be red shifted microwave cerenkov radiation or even electron cooling or heating depending on the altitude.

Green could be electron heating if the object is at low altitudes. The opposite colors (red) if at high altitudes.

All of these are colors from plasmas. Or dielectric fields even.

Plasmas the ionized gas colors. Plasmas for the electron cooling and aroural colors.

Electric fields interacting with plasmas for electron cooling and bremmstrelung.

Electric fields creating kerr effects inside plasma cavity to alter refractive index inducing cerenkov radiation and those associated colors.

Plasmas the central ingredient. Ive spent lotsa time directly observing these orbs too and this is what i think the best answer is.

Plasma can have Raleigh taylor instabilities and appear to be seathing. A rotating magnetic field dragging through the plasma could make the ionized gasses appear to swirl. Scintilation could be from femto or pico second pulses of a laser thats operating as a phase conjugate soliton to radialy push out the ions to form a plasma bubble which then in turn can be used as a microwave resonant cavity or coaxed into a dielectric medium to induce kerr effects and alter refractive indexes.

Please forgive me BASSPLYR I thought you were referring to change in orb colour due to the altitude of sighting. I work in a glue environment and it's kicking in now

You obviously have researched the colour thing, to be honest you've used words there and I haven't got a clue what you mean as have no science background but wish I did lol as it would help in this field of study. Can I ask you a question please. Do you think the colour of an orb can change? I've never seen this myself, it's just I have seen them shapeshift into a non orb shape (body builders dumbell) so have always wondered if they can change their own colur type output? From you science background do you believe this is possible or not?

I'm not entirely sure wtf you're talking about but it sounds plausible. No sarcasm, I'm gonna reread your post about a hundred times to wrap my head around it but I like it. Makes me think.

Yep i think it can change color. Ive seen them paridly go back n forth between orange red to greenish blue.

The two together forming. Dumbell shape sounds like a pair of plasma blooms next to each other.

Infrared lasers triangulated will create a bloom of plasma in the atmosphere where they crisscross if you dump enough energy into them.

A fourth laser can then tickle the plasma getting it to convert the energy from that laser to other frequencies of electro magnetic energy. The laser light can be converted into radio or microwaves. Possibly create emp pulses. Function as a radar reflector. A. Virtual signal transponder for data communication. A lense for optical effects. A virual speaker to make sound. A virtual flare to create light. Can be used defensively. Offensively. Or as a element of your command communications and control structure. Or use it to deny the enemy their command and control communications or tracking targeting abilities.

Handy military hardware.

That double flash of light seems to occur just prior to acceleration.Any ideas as to why?
