RoxtarRyan: Was it unaffected by summoning sickness?
jfarkinB: I assumed ball lighting was real through my childhood and early adulthood. As video cameras became more ubiquitous, we saw more and more footage of transient events -- tornadoes, auto accidents, meteors, assaults, and so on -- but no ball lightning. (No LGM coming out of saucers, either.) I'd about written ball lightning off as visual afterimages. But I'd be really happy to be proven wrong.Anybody have a link to the actual video?
sxacho: My grandmother was chased up her basement stairs by ball lightning once years and years ago.Beat that!
Kraftwerk Orange: I witnessed it once, alongside a road as we were driving. Two other people in the car saw it as well. Cool stuff, the thing WTF?!? was meant for.
mrhollywoodgates: link to video: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/01/19/ball-lightning-recorded-natu r e-first-time_n_4618694.htmlA little disappointing, though.
