A UFO photographed in the night skies at Evans Head two weeks ago may actually be a ghost according to Wardell purveyor of all things paranormal David Delaney.

The photograph taken by Lismore Heights woman Korrinne Stewart appeared in Friday’s Northern Star.

“It’s a pretty difficult one to pick from a photo, but I believe it is an orb,” Mr Delaney said.

An orb, according to Mr Delaney, is a ghost or a human soul in the form of light.

Appearing as an orb is the preferred form of apparition by ghosts because it requires less energy, Mr Delaney said.

Ms Stewart took the photo,in which both the moon and a mysterious shape can be seen, while fishing in the Evans River.

She sent the photo to The Northern Star after reading about another UFO sighting at Evans Head when two men on their way home from the pub saw strange shapes in the sky, resembling a crescent moon.

There have been several reported UFO sightings in the region recently, including one last week in the skies at Nimbin where party-goers saw a bright red light which quickly faded to green before disappearing.

Mr Delaney said the most likely explanation for the photo taken by Ms Stewart was a ghost not a UFO.

Ghost sightings increase over the winter months.

“In the colder months you get more,” Mr Delaney said.

“It is easier (for ghosts) to take on apparitions and manifestations in winter.”

Mr Delaney, who owns and opperates ghost tour company Paranormal Pursuit, said orbs were very common.

“They are the most common thing to be photographed on the tours,” Mr Delaney said.

“We see them 100 per cent of the time.

“They can be very photogenic when they want to.”

Mr Delaney said sometimes people’s camera batteries went flat when photographing an orb because it could draw on a variety of energy sources.

“They can draw on powerlines and people as well,” Mr Delaney said.

Mr Delaney has a Facebook group on which people can post their photographs of orbs for him to authenticate.
