Description: I photographed multiple orbs on November 14 & 15, 2008. I Used a simple digital camera with flash. It was a clear night in the Trout Lake WA area. I have MANY more pictures.

Second Report (In Response to Investigator Questions): I was able to see the orbs in most of the shots, but only after using my my flash focus (red light that tracks in low light before flash goes off). I have also learned to "soft focus" my eyes using my peripheral and was able to see much more consistently. Almost all of the photo's are facing Mt. Adams from Trout Lake WA. on November 14 & November 15, 2008. Many are time stamped. Ii also visually observed ships over Mt Adams at sundown for approximately 15 minutes, but did not photograph as I was in Glenwood WA and did not have my camera near by. I am going back this weekend to see what else I can capture. The activity was consistent both nights. We also had a strange light following our car on highway 141 that we attempted to photograph, but when we stopped the car it would disappear. All this sounds like a lot of activity, but I guarantee anyone who goes up there can capture the same thing with intention. My friend with me also captured similar shots at the same time and saw what I saw. A few others attached as well. I will let you know if I get anything else this weekend.

Comments: I have seen several photos of these nighttime orbs. The witness said that she saw the orbs in the photo. Most people don't see the orbs that they photograph. Given the response by the witness I am not sure of the identity of the orb in the above photo. I originally thought that the orb was an anomaly created by the flash setting of the camera. The shutter speed was only 1/45 of a second meaning that anything photographed at night would have to be very bright.
