An orb shadow is a hallucination or vision that people experience after using the Orbs of the Prophets. In Bajoran tradition, orb shadows occur if a person ignores what the Prophets told them during their orb experience.
At the same time, in the Gamma Quadrant, Opaka had been dreaming that she had spoken to Sisko in his orb shadow, indicating the two had a psychic connection due to their encounters with Orbs. (DS9 novel: Rising Son)
