Thank you very much, Frits.  This may not be they same type of orb, and I
should have given more information, but I am very interested in this type of

I am a member of MUFON and have been since shortly after my son and I had a
UFO fly directly overhead during the early seventies while on a duck hunt.
This craft was less than five hundred feet away and absolutely noiseless.  I
have been a believer ever since.

My son sent an e-mail about the orbs.  He has an aquaintance who has had orbs
show up in photos of him taken by his wife.  They never appear in photos of
his wife.  I contacted a member of MUFON who has had a lot of paranormal
experience and she says some people are orb attractors and some are not.  She
also told me that this type orb is believed to be energy left by someone
deceased.  I asked her if old home places were good spots to try photographing
orbs.  She said yes but old graveyards are better and the best luck she has
heard of was the scene of an auto accident where people are killed but she
could not bring herself to do this.  They seem to show up best where there was
a violent death.  I have no experience in this but I do know of a few old
homesites and cemetaries so I may give it a try.  This kind of stuff
fascinates me and I don't disbelieve anything anymore.
