Case File: Hoyt Arboretum Orbs

This case file was originally featured on the Portland Paradex site (R.I.P.). It was submitted by my friend (who decided to go by Ghosthunter D) and highlights a very common occurrence:

Time:
unknown, daytime


Date: unknown, sometime in or prior to 2007

Place: Hoyt Arboretum (or close to it), in Oregon

Witnesses: Ghosthunter D and a Friend

What happened:
Ghosthunter D and a friend were hiking through Hoyt Arboretum (Arboretum means Tree Museum by the way, basically it’s a partially man-made forest), towards Pittock Mansion. At some point they stopped to rest and snap a few pictures of the forest around them. A few of these pictures contained orbs, as seen in the picture below:

(This is the photo as I received it, unaltered, expect possibly for size.)

Notes & Evidence:
The picture above is pretty typical of the sort of dust reflection images that are often mistaken for ghosts orbs (this isn’t to say all orb images are dust, but a good number are).
The Hoyt Arboretum is an outdoors location that can get rather dusty, particularly in the summer. Other dusty locations where dust orb images are common include; old houses, crypts, and museums.

Below is a image I took in a dusty museum setting (somewhere in Alaska) which demonstrates another type of eerie image you can get from dust, glowing squiggly lines (right side, on the polar bear’s belly):
