Orbs on Islay at Kilchoman

I don't know about you but when I read the word Orb I didn't have a clue what it was. I first saw the word Orb appear in the title of a video made at Kilchoman on Islay and when I watched it I still didn't have a clue, although I did vaguely see some moving light objects. A quick search on the web revealed that an Orb is an existing optical phenomenon which has both a logical explanation and a paranormal interpretation. Wikipedia gives the following rational definition: "The term orb describes unexpected, typically circular artifacts in photographs. Sometimes the artifact leaves a trail, indicating motion." The paranormal explanation reveals that: "Orb backscatter and especially its movement has been broadly interpreted as a highly variable range of paranormal phenomenon without verifiable causation, including invisible spirits, auras, angels, ghosts, energy fields, psychoenergetic artifacts, energy balls, etc." To be honest I like the paranormal explanation better and perhaps these orbs are ghosts living on Islay's westcoast or even angels that come to collect their share of whisky, who knows. I will leave you with the video to judge for yourself what it is that you are seeing here. I must admit that I have a logical explanation for the light effects but I will keep that for myself. Enjoy the video, and music!

A great little video that keeps you wondering.
Although I would love to think that the Angels are looking for their share or indeed it is something that just can't be explained, I've seen similar to this many times before.
If you don't want me to spoil this for you, then I suggest that you stop reading now.

The answer as to what it is, is very simple. It's the rain drops on the windscreen of the car. They don't normally get picked up, but because the image is zoomed in on, it becomes a flashing, moving sort of light. You can just about see loads of them at the end where filming is taken of an area of windscreen that has plenty of water on. This can be seen on normal filmimg. Sorry if this has upset you. I would have loved it to have been something else.

Hi Keith, thanks for your comment. I kinda figured out that the raindrops on the windscreen would be the most probable and logical explanation but I think one is always looking for another more romantic or paranormal explanation. What remains is an interesting and somewhat spooky video and the fact that next time I drive there I will observe the area in a different way ;-)

Cheers, Ron
