DragonCon Spirit Orbs and a challenge!

Had lots to do at DragonCon, but as you know from the last few days on the blog, I was able to go out and enjoy the wondrous costumes created by some of the attendees. As I was uploading my photos on the first day, I noticed something unusual on one of the photos – orbs.

You may remember our discussion about spirit orbs from last year (you can click here for that blog post). So while I was uploading to Facebook, I mentioned the orbs to my friend Joy Nash and lo and behold – she had similar orbs on her shot of the same people! You can check them out down below.

This is my shot of the angel couple. I’ve circled the orbs for you.


This is Joy’s shot of the orbs where I’ve circled 3 orbs as well.


Dust? Pollen? Did I mention that none of our other photos seemed to have these orbs?

Luckily, Dave Tango from the Ghost Hunters happened by our booth and my friend Shannon talked to him about the orbs. Probably dust or pollen, Dave said. He explained that digital cameras interpret what they are seeing and make shapes out of things like dust. But he did say that if the two shots were taken at different times and different locations, that might warrant some further investigation.

Here’s a picture of Dave and me at the booth!

So how about you? Do you believe in spirit orbs? If you were at DragonCon and got a picture of this angel couple, do you have orbs? If so, please send me an e-mail with the photo. You can click here to contact me!

  1. I believe it was yours friends site that I posted on as well, since I just happened upon these photos. That is I on the left, and Alan on the right. I’m quite amused that orbs appeared on our pictures, it tends to happen here at the house too. Protectors maybe? I was 6 months pregnant at dragon*con :3

  2. I had a reading done a few years by by Conchetta, a well nown psychic in northern NJ, and since that day I beleive in everything.

    Love TAPS BTW – how cool to have a picture with Tango

  3. How cool and strange, Caridad. Don’t know if I buy Dave’s explanation, like the thought that they’re spirit orbs much better.

  4. So Ive been hearing about the Dragoncon orbs here and about , thought I’d check out the pics! Fascinating!

    What facility was Dragoncon held in? Any history of the place available or stories of its construction?

    Its certainly fodder for the fertile imagination without a doubt!

    Do I beleive in spirit orbs? Absolutely.
    I believe we all of us possess an aura around us-and we leave a little bit of us (perhaps as small as dust or pollen) wherever we go.
    Therefore it only makes sense that buildings, settings where lots of people have been, maybe died unplanned would serve as “containers” for those “bits”–

    The idea is fascinating and logical at the same time!

    Thanks for sharing this!
