Thanks for posting that link again.
That footage you refer to - the stuff the fellow captured outside his house, and that amazing plasma-like orb shot inside of the house - is really stunning. That one particular indoor sequence is right up on front of the camera lens, and it's simply something else. I'll go on record and state it's perhaps the most compelling "orb" footage I've ever seen.
What everyone needs to understand is that most photographic orbs are indeed artifacts of light refraction through a camera lens, and the reason that people often don't see them when they're actually shooting the picture is that they're using typical point-and-shoot cameras. This type of camera does NOT really show what's coming through the lens - unlike a SLR (single lens reflex) camera, which uses a mirror to shoot the through-the-lens light up to a focusing screen and the optical elements that feed the eyepiece.
I highly recommend that entire show, it's full of really strange - and in some cases, creepy - footage and stories.
The guy that took those vids would be a good guest to have on. I'd love to spend some time out there at his home with my cams and recorders. Scientist need to be all on that case. Too bad they aren't.
The disclaimer was a bit odd at the beginning of the documentary. The exact wording of it at least. It states "None can be authenticated". Wonder if that was a way of giving themselves an out if the show itself made up hoaxes. It could mean something else of course, but I'm wary of tv shows. Especially since Abduction at Lake County (or whatever it was called) and Sci-fi channel's hoaxes they do for commercials etc.
