What Does A Black Orb Mean?
We get a lot of questions about orbs around here. It's probably because we are some of the very few researchers who honestly analyze them, rather than dismissing them as dust or making a big deal out of a floating hair. We have found real anomalies in our orb footage and we spend a lot of time and energy trying to understand what they truly are, not to mention that a couple of us have seen a few orb oddities we couldn’t explain. They aren’t always as mundane as some researchers would have you believe, and they aren’t always as spectacular as others present them to be. We make it our goal to stay real and objective, whatever that means to the outcome of the evidence.

Generally, folks have questions about orbs appearing in photos or video. Some want to know what it means to actually see them with the naked eye, or how to distinguish a moisture orb from dear ‘ole Aunt Martha, but the most frequent orb inquiries we get are in regard to coloration. "What does a purple orb mean?" Christine Blue goes into some excellent popular theories on this topic with her article "What Does A Colored Orb Mean?" The only color not covered in her article is black, which is a frequent question on our site. This article is based on my own black orb experiences and observations over the years, with some hope that it will help define what these anomalies really are.

I’ve had “sight” all of my life. I’ve seen full apparitions, shadows, mists, fogs, auras and lights since I was a child, but I saw my first black orb in November of 2003 while in the Florida Everglades on business. It was about the size of a ping-pong ball and bounced around my hotel room while I argued passionately with my husband over the phone. When I got home from that trip, I began seeing more and more of the little buggers all over my house. I saw them inside, outside, in the dark, with the lights on, with my eyes open and with my eyes closed. When this first started happening, I made a hasty appointment with my eye doctor. The examination showed I had no floaters, torn retinas, ravenous parasites or other issues that might have caused this. Outside of astigmatism in my right eye and being near-sighted, my eyes are in perfect health. That’s when I hit the internet hard, trying to find out what they were, but my research produced more questions than answers- literally! It seemed that I wasn’t the only person seeing this phenomenon, but no one knew what they were; all of the references I found were other people asking the same questions I was. It didn’t take long for my friends and family to start seeing them, too. My kids were the first to come to me and tell me about the “little black dots” they were seeing. Then, my brother approached me with the same experiences, followed by many more people who didn’t usually see these types of things. All I could do was shrug my shoulders and compare notes.

Over the years we have continued to see the black orbs, which allowed for opportunity to study them a little closer. In my research and experience, I found that a black orb is typically seen with the naked eye but is rarely captured on still photos or video. This is odd, considering that lighted orbs have been seen, filmed and photographed for quite some time. Black orbs are consistently described to look much like a traditional black hole: a spot of pitch blackness surrounded by a thin, lighted corona or event horizon. Sometimes they are the size of a pin prick, sometimes the size of a grapefruit. They are seen one at a time, in a swarm, and everything in between. They are usually round in shape, but not always; there are times when they look more like an amoeba than an orb, but whatever the case they always have a lighted corona. The corona itself varies in color, but is usually yellow, whitish, pale orange or light green.

I have noticed that people don’t report “seeing” the black orbs in the same way they see the lighted orbs. They usually see the lighted orbs slightly out of their direct focus or in the peripheral, whereas they can see the black orbs dead-on, just like you’re looking at this screen right now. I’ve personally noticed that they tend to be most visibly brilliant when negative emotion is running high. I’ve seen them dance closely around someone’s ear as that person works into an emotional frenzy beyond what the situation warrants, and I’ve watched them hover over the chest of a person who is grieving deeply and doesn’t understand why it hurts so bad. Are the black orbs to blame for the anger or grief? Not that I can tell. The person is already in that state of mind, but the emotion certainly seems to be heightened beyond normal levels. I’ve also noticed that the more upset the person gets, the more the physical appearance of the orb intensifies. By this I mean the dark hole grows blacker and the corona gets brighter, making the whole anomaly more solid and lucid as the emotion escalates. Does this make them demonic or a bad spirit? Maybe, but I don’t think so. I’ve dealt with rotten and difficult entities of many shapes and sizes throughout my life, and these don’t have the same qualities. Intuitively speaking, black orbs feel like they have no personality- almost like they are mechanical in nature, but it does feel like there is a presence on the other side of them, as if they are being “driven” or “operated”. They don’t give goose bumps or raise the hairs on your body, nor do they give you the creeps. You can’t really “feel” them at all like you would feel a spirit, ghost or supernatural presence. As for their movement, they can hover, dart, zip, float and fade away into nothing. Physically speaking, they do not produce any EMF fluctuations, audio phenomenon, temperature variations, or photo/video evidence to speak of. What the hell? You would think that if so many people are seeing them and they are quite physical in appearance, they would give off some kind of physical reading or evidence. That doesn’t seem to be the case at all.

What are they? I wish I knew and I will continue to research them until I figure it out. Six years after my first encounter, I’m still floundering for answers. I’ve gone through all of the Spiritual avenues and came up empty-handed. I’ve researched legend and lore, but found nothing that really resembles these guys. When I searched the world of science I discovered a possible connection to the Hadron Colliders, but nothing solid by any means.

Let’s talk about the Hadron Collider for a few… For those of you unfamiliar with these HUGE machines, Wikepedia has a great article on the big one in Switzerland. Essentially, it is a 17 mile circular tunnel, 160’-570’ underground. This tunnel is full of massive, super-conducting magnets (around 1600 of ‘em), proton beams and liquid helium by the tons. All of this is designed to smash a bunch of particles together and answer a list of scientific questions and theories pertaining to: Gravity; Matter vs. Anti-Matter; The Relationship of Magnetism/Strong Nuclear Force/Weak Nuclear Force; Dark Energy/Dark Matter; and last but not least- The Possibility of Extra Dimensions. One of the biggest concerns with running this machine in the scientific community is that it could create small black holes. Hmmm… see my point? It’s certainly worth more research, but wow that stuff isn’t easy to read through and information isn’t exactly definitive. I don’t think they really know what it will do, if you want my opinion. Supposedly (and this is top secret), there are a total of 4 of these machines in the World. I’m sure we will be talking more about them in the future, whether they have anything to do with black orbs or not.

As for the black orbs, we’re still collecting data. So, if you’ve seen one (or more!), please let us know. In the mean time, we’ll keep you posted on any new stuff we get in.

Our team is currently investigating a case where black orbs are very common to be seen in the home. As a matter of fact, an investigator that was with me during the initial interview process actually see one manifest as we were asking questions. Not only are black orbs seen, but also black string-like anomalies.

Interesting! Sorry for the delay in responding. I've been out of town and just got your post. Have you been able to acquire any more info or experience on this case? I'm very intrigued with the "string" you described.
Thanks!

I am amazed on how good you described the black orb, I have seen one myself and i still remember like it was yesterday every last detail. This happend quite a few years ago when I was about 13 years old. It happend when me and my brother wher playing video games and i paused the game for a bathroom break. I just happend to look to my left and I saw a pitch black orb shaped ball about the size of a basketball, but not perfectly round it was as if it was a floating mini gas cloud. I was soo dumbfounded i couldn't move or speak. I stared at it for about 2 seconds when it turned itself and stoped really fast as if it turned its body to see me. soon after it ziped over closer to me it came about walking speed, I still didnt move. I kept waching it until it hoverd across my body at chest level. After it passed me it as if it kept going into my parents room at the time nobody was home. for some reason when it passed me it hit the wall on its way to my parents room and it actualy made a little noice as if you wiped ure hand on the wall. this is a true story and I was a non believer about anything un scientific until that day. I am certain that we are talking about the same thing, what do you think?

Wow! What an experience! Yes, I would say that you saw a black orb. It's amazing how many people are seeing them now. On our website, the most common search phrase has to do with people looking for information on the black orbs.
Thanks for sharing!

The description you gave of the black orb is dif then the ones I believe I've seen almost on a daily basis. I see ping-pong ball sized, translucent, shooting orbs out of my peripheral vision. I am trying to develop a psychic ability. Maybe this is the beginning of it? Also, I just moved into my apt. Prior to the move I never saw them? Any insist?

no problem at all, I was just excited to know I wasn't crazy or the only one to have seen it. But the only thing was that I saw the orb when I was in a good mood and didnt you mention seeing them when you're in destress?

Yes, I did. However, we are still trying to gather data on them, so maybe they affect different people differently, or maybe they are different regionally. I dunno. Only time, communication and research will tell...

well I only found this page because I have just seen another black orb, this is the first time I have seen one clear enough to lead me to believe that it isn't just my bad eyes. I have been seeing them for about a year now, up until about an hour ago I had always thought it was my bad eyes. it always occurs when I am either tired or trying to sleep. I will wake up in the dark without my glasses on and see a floating black thing then I will blink and it is gone. the one that I just saw was different from the others I think. I clearly believe it was something supernatural because it was only about 10cm. from my face. I could see the black mass clearly amongst the white walls. it was about the size of a golf ball, and it looked very distorted. it was like a cluster of some kind of wires formed in to a ball floating before me. I peered in to it for about 2 seconds then I blinked and it was gone. I have never been spiritually sensitive, this is the only paranormal experience I have ever had to the best of my knowledge. If you ever learn of what this phenomenon might be then I would very much like to know. I have very bad eyesight so I can not really say if what I saw was really accurate as to what really appeared before me.

I just saw a black orb in the early morning hours of Oct 6 in my daughter's room. She had been waking up off and on all night (very unusual for her) and when I went in to put her back down, I saw the orb. I have seen orbs before, but only white ones. I brought her to our room, she wouldn't sleep. Then about 30 minutes later, I felt a calm peace and knew she could go back in and the orb was gone. Sure enough, she slept well. Last night nothing. Thank you for posting the article, it was the most informative on line. We are in St. Louis so just down the road!

Interesting! We certainly plan to research this phenomenon further. It seems more and more people are seeing the black orbs and are searching for answers. Thanks for sharing!

My Name is Dave, Im 19 Yrs of age, I ve seen black orbs my entire life, Theyve followed me from home to home, I and I disagree, they move with intellegence. I have witnessed them move things directly through tables. I was doubted for years by my non beleiving best friend, He one day witnessed a golf ball sized black orb in his room from downstairs in the parking lot, before i could explain what i saw he did so i knew i wasnt crazy my whole life. im a grown man, and i dont cry very much, but when these things are present i break down in tears, and that intensifies their power, they feed off od negative emotion but i cant help but be so scared I have also seen the ameoba shaped WHITE orbs, I cant beleive you actually have seen that shaped orb too, like ridged edges, the reason i am here is bcaz for two years i havent seen these orbs, things hjave happened but no orbs, And this morning 930 I was in my bathroom, by the doorway, and a grapefuit sized ameoba whit orb floated by at chest level at a medium speed, i have 20 20 vision, and have also been to the eye doctor multiple times, I have had Girlfrinds witness these things, Ive had explosions of light in completely dark basements, and Im at the point where I KNOW WHAT I AM SEEING IS REAL I hate when people dont beleive me, I hate closed minded people, I try SOOO hard to come to logical conclusions but just cant. Ive woken up to the sound of the static on a radio at 300 am, and had to get uyp and turn my sound system off, Ive woken up and had my TV shutoff at exactly that moment, ive had the light dimmers move while i wathced them, please someone tell me what i can do, i walk around terrified, in the first few years i was fine, and i have been for the past 2 years, but I cant deny it anymore im so scared of this. they are intellegent, and sometimes evil. I beleive they follow me because of my Extremely deep pain and anger from when i was a kid in foster homes and jail, and many horrible things happened to me and i always bottled up my pain and anger, but i think they thrive off of me, and my ego and willpower is very strong, my Gurlfriend beleives in god more than she does of evil and she preys when we see these things, they throw things, I cant take it, im letting them get to me and they know it is and they thrive off of my fear, the only good orb ive ever seen was this morning, but i wanted to come here and see why it was so oddly shaped, Ive nevr taken pictures of them, i have always seen them with the naked eye. I have been followed in atleast 8 homes ive lived in , But anytime i was in foster homes or jail, they were never there. someone please explian more, anything, I know what i am seeing is far from just coincidence

Wow! Sounds like you've been dealing with these guys for a while! I agree that they seem to move with intelligence, but I haven't been able to sense any personality or character, which is kind of confusing since they seem to goose emotion. They don't appear to follow the same rules as other spiritual phenomenon, either. For example: If I encounter a cranky spirit, I can tell them to mind their manners and move on but that doesn't work with the black orbs. I have found, however, that if I try to examine them closely they don't like it and will fade away. Good luck and thanks for sharing your insight with us!

I saw, back in July of 2008, a fairly large black sphere suspended in the air in the field behind my house. I don't know if this is the same type of phenomena as what you're talking about but here's the story.

I was taking my kids outside to go swimming, I wanted to get in some pool time in before it rained. There were lots and lots of puffy clouds gathering in the sky and it was pretty gusty out. I was standing facing due north in our side yard, and I saw out of the corner of my eye slightly to my right (to the northeast) something rather large and black. I thought at first it must be a huge bird or something, but when I looked directly at it, I could see it was round, like a ball. It was roughly the size of a bb held at arms length, and it appeared to be suspended between the puffy clouds. It was hovering, did not move at all, in spite of all the wind. I looked at it for maybe 15-20 seconds, repeating to myself over and over again "WTF WTF WTF WTF WTF???"

Then, it suddenly began to drop straight down, and as far as I could tell, went all the way to the ground. It appeared to land behind the railroad tracks that are behind my house, maybe 1/2 mile away. I never did go look, but a few days later I saw a black helicopter flying over the area, circling over and over again.

I have no idea what that sphere was or if the helicopter was connected to it in any way.

I have heard and seen many strange things in my lifetime, and I would say this experience is up there among the strangest. I live in the St. Louis area.

WTF is right! LOL What you are describing is certainly classified as a black orb, but I'm not sure they are the same thing covered in our article. What you saw has been reported world-wide, especially around chemtrails, UFO sightings and, of course, the mysterious black/unmarked helicopters. What an experience! Thanks so much for sharing!

Hi guys. A few weeks ago I started seeing black orbs...It wouldn't bother me so much because I've had paranormal experiences since I can remember, but a couple of black orbs started flying in and out of my 6mo's head. He was sound asleep at the time. However, as soon this started happening he started screaming. We've also recently been experiencing lights flickering on by themselves, shadow people, voices, and other noises. As I said this stuff isn't new to me with the exception of the black orbs, but I am concerned for my son. Oddly enough friends and family that haven't experienced anything paranormal before have started to in this house and while they're around me. Should I be concerned? I don't know what to make of the black orbs or why things seem more active than usual.

Sounds like you guys have several things going on there. From your description, it appears that the black orbs are the only thing that has been negative or threatening. It sounds like everything else is just trying to get your attention. With the shadows and other activity, you will find it effective to set down the rules. Tell them to mind their manners or go away. Speak out loud to them and you have to mean it. As for the black orbs, you can try the same thing, but I've found it more helpful to examine them; get up in their face and look at them closely. They don't like it and will fade away. It's hard to do when your child is upset and reacting to them, but if you will focus on them, they will go away. Good luck and keep us posted!

Well, I was only a couple of feet away from the orbs while I was watching them fly around him. Then when they flew in and out of his head that's when he started screaming.
I've still been seeing the shadows and black orbs off and on, but I've been noticing blue and violet ones now as well.
Also, I've been noticing things out of place. For example, I'll take something I need into the living room lay it down walk away for a few seconds and it's gone. So, I'll go in search of it to find it back in the spot that I had originally gotten it from.

In looking at some of the most common thoughts of Blue orbs we see Shielding or protection of some sort.
Pilot Light Blue = shielding.
Dark Blue = shielding, shyness, survivor instinct
It is possible that a shy shielding spriit is in protection mode of your 6 mth old. Maybe from whatever is moving objects around. And movement of things is sometimes related to poltergeist activity.

If you want to take some action, I would suggest to start with a digital voice recorder. Place it in a room of known activity and let is record. Then you can review for e.v.ps. You can do the same with video.

Let us know if you capture anything.

From a spiritual or religious aspect there are many choices of things you can do to comfort yourself or your child. Since I don't know your thoughts or beliefs on that, I won't get into it but that far.

And...we're all still baffeled by the black orb experiences.

Hmmm... Someone is really trying to get your attention! LOL You can ask them to quit messing around with you. Chances are pretty good they are teasing you. I mean, imagine if you were invisible, the tricks you could play! Let us know if the activity gets out of hand and we'll be happy to share what advice we can.

Just last night, and this morning, I saw a three blacks orbs in all. Which led me to this site, because I was quite curious about what they meant. I'm in an old house and my mom and her boyfriend swear it's haunted (it was built in the 40s or 50s). So, last night, after getting home from a wedding reception at a winery (I was quite drunk, mind you). As I was hopping into bed, a black orb zooms past the opposite side of the bed I was on and promptly dissapear. I figure that I'm just drunk and seeing things, and quickly pass out. But then, just this morning, with a mild hangover, sitting in bed just staring at the wall, I see two more of them zoom past me about 5 feet in front of me and near the ceiling, and promptly dissapear once again. They were all quite small, about the size of a lime, maybe even smaller. After I saw the two orbs this morning, my daily horoscope comes in on my phone, saying "It's not paranoid to think that cosmic messages are sent just for you. Someone is watching and listening, but their intentions are good." Creepy, huh? This led me to believe that whatever the black orbs are, they are not bad in a sense, or want to hurt me. I have seen orbs a couple other times in my life, but they were bright blue, and it was years ago. I have also captured ghost footage on accident, years ago, that I have long since erased, because at the time I told myself it was nothing. I do believe in the paranormal now though, and if you could tell me more about these black orbs as you find out more, that would be great, and I hope my story helps some.
