We introduce a class of propagation invariant spatiotemporal optical wave packets with spherical harmonic symmetries in their field configurations. The evolution of these light orbitals is considered theoretically in anomalously dispersive media, and their spinning dynamics are analyzed in terms of their corresponding energy flows. Similarly, localized waves generated via spherical superposition from Archimedean and Platonic solids in k-ω space are investigated in this work.
