Wait, what?

Hovercraft over Sea Cornwallhttps


I love stuff like this! Ball Lightning is another cool natural phenomenon. My Mom described seeing this, neither she nor I had ever heard of it. My 3rd grade son was listening and matter-of-factly stated “Ball lightning!” We looked at him and said “What?” And he explained. That is how I learned about ball lightening, lol! They can be tiny or huge, but get this. She thought it was a UFO. I have read that when they explode, you can smell sulpher. I have a theory! I think it happens when one of Satan’s minions gets defeated by an Angel! 😉The tiny ones probably explain what some people call ” spirit lights” They can go through walls and windows. Spoooooky, right? 😲

A phenomenon that looks similar, but has a different source, is “will-o’-the-wisp”


Also Known As….

Ghost Candle, Ghost Light, Hinkypunk, Hobby Lantern, Ignis Fatuus (“Foolish Fire”), Spook Light, Will-of-the-Torch. These happen around marshes and bogs as various gasses rise, and as bubbles break out through the surface of the water. But of course the scientific explanation is no fun!

Play nice!
