Orbs are often seen in photographs. They appear as fuzzy light-colored blotches. What they truly are is up to debate.

Some people with interest in the supernatural, claim these orbs to be evidence of spirits or ghosts, and thus a haunted location.

Supporters of both theories will generally stick to their respective beliefs while discounting the others...
