So in volunteering at a Boy Scout retreat every year, I was looking through the photos on the Facebook page and found this photo. Almost directly in
the center at the top of the photo is a perfectly round orb. I am NOT claiming this to be paranormal in any way, shape or form, I'm simply posting
this so that others who are more experienced in this field can advise me of what I'm looking at.
I am not an expert in photography so it could be from the candle to the right, the camera most likely had flash on, being around 9 or 10pm at night in
a state park with very little light. I believe that behind the photographer there's a light on the porch of the building that they're standing
outside, though I'm not certain. Also, I'm not 100% sure if this is the original photo or not, if it's determined that it's been edited, I will do
all in my power to contact the original photographer because I have an idea of who it might be, just let me know. I simply downloaded it off our
Facebook page and am uploading it here. I didn't put it through any editing software myself at all. So ATS, please just let me know what you see and
if it's from the candle or possibly other lights, we'll leave it at that and I won't argue it any further. Thank you in advance.
Edit: I forgot to mention. Behind where the people are standing is a pretty high row of trees. I know it's dark, but just wanted to mention that
because the moon wouldn't be visible at that angle in the sky and also there are no street lights back there either.
The image was taken at a Boy Scout camp in Sumerset, Pa in the Laurel Mountains near Laurel Hill State Park. There are some street lights on the
property, but most of the time to get around at night, one needs to use flashlights due to being in the middle of nowhere and all. The building
behind the photographer is the newest building there, and has one or two lights on it, though they're not super bright or anything. I'm not sure of
what kind of camera the photographer was using or anything like that, forgive me for not knowing this. I didn't make it to this retreat until around
11pm, after this part was over so I was not there for it.
Beyond the trees behind the people is the parade field with a flagpole, no lights or anything.
I'm not at the location now or anywhere near it, it's about 60 miles away from me and, being at the end of the summer now, the camp will be gated up
so I would have no way of going there at this time during the day to take any photos of the location. Feel free to ask any questions, I'll answer to
the best of my ability.
