MAYBE THEY'RE STAY-PUFT MARSHMALLOWS (via Brian Boys):

Couple captures curious orb on film: Fausts say it might be spirit activity (TOM LOEWY, January 12, 2007, The Register-Mail)

Ectoplasm? Ghost balls? The energy from a trapped spirit?

Or is the strange floating orb Allan and Joyce Faust captured on their digital camera nothing more than a lens flare or a trick of light?

Whatever you decide, the Fausts just don't want to be thought of as a pair of squirrels.

"People will think we are nuts. Squirrely. Really, I'm worried about it," Allan said Thursday morning while he sat in the kitchen of the couple's brick Cape Cod style home at 1343 Jefferson St.

Allan held an enhanced picture in his hand and studied it. It showed a small ball of light floating not far from him.

"But when we saw these pictures and saw the orb, Joyce said we should maybe call the paper," Allan said. "I never believed in ghosts before - but I do now. I believe in orbs."


As Brother Boys points out, given the couples' name it seems hasty to rule out the possibility that they've seen Mephistopheles.
