For anyone intrigued by ‘Orb’ related phenomena, the following account - sent to the W.M.G.C. by e-mail in 2002 - will, no doubt, be of considerable interest.
The details concerned were forwarded by Donna of Bedfordshire, who kindly gave us permission to repeat the (edited) facts here:
“On Sunday night of this week, I had got up to feed my baby daughter who is two weeks old. I was very alert as I wake quite easily. I felt quite uneasy downstairs so put the T.V. on and was watching when I heard noises which sounded like furniture being moved upstairs. I then saw what I am sure was an orb, which moved from the bottom of the T.V. area to the top. I was transfixed by this but scared at the same time. I then saw what looked like a shadow reflecting on the T.V. I woke my partner and asked him to come and sit with me; I explained why I felt uneasy and he said he had also seen a ball of light about the size of a 50 pence moving diagonally near the fireplace, the night before at around the same time.
We have for some time heard noises which sound like people walking around the house. We heard a noise one night and, when switching on the bedroom light, I found my bedside drawer had been opened. I also once felt a cold spot all around me in the kitchen; to touch the air one side was cold whilst the other was warm and there were no doors or windows open. My 12 year old son, who was 9 at the time, came downstairs one evening and said there was a man sitting behind him on his sisters bed, but you know what children are like!!
The first orb to be seen was the one near the fireplace. My partner saw this on 07.09.02 at around 3am. The second was the one which seemed to move from the bottom to the top of the T.V.. The program concerned was only ‘Casualty’, so there should have been no orbs there! It definitely was not on the actual screen; this was seen the next night at around 3am by myself. My partner did not tell me about what he had seen until after I had told him about the orb that I saw. The one that moved up the T.V. was then followed by a shadow…..”
Donna tells us that she was somewhat perplexed at actually seeing (what looked like) an ‘Orb’ with the naked eye!….. The Ghost Club – and, I’m sure, Donna herself – would like to hear your views on the above mentioned experience?
Best wishes to all,
