Orbs are probably the most misunderstood aspect of paranormal phenomena, in my opinion. What you see in this video is most likely a bug of some sort.
Depending on the setup used for recording, even a small mosquito, which are relatively hard to see from a distance with the naked eye, will show up
like this on a recording. The vast majority of what people call orbs are nothing more than dust particles reflecting light back into the camera,
followed up by bugs reflecting light.
Many researchers say that an orb must produce its own light, but even this guideline is misleading, due to the fact that it is very difficult to
distinguish between something producing its own light and something reflecting light. Some instances are easier to distinguish than others, but often
times it is nearly impossible to tell. And whenever there is a possibility that the evidence captured is not paranormal, it must be thrown out. That
is the responsible thing to do, and what a seasoned and respectable investigator will do.
I find it funny when someone is recording inside an old house in the dark, with hundreds of orbs floating around, with the researchers claiming it is
spirit energy. It is obviously dust and grit and dirt, and immediately those investigators lose credibility among the more knowledgeable and high
profile investigators...So I think orbs should be discounted 9 out of 10 times. Occasionally something incredible may show up in the form of an orb,
but usually it is easily explainable.
