Ball Lightning

A relatively rare form of lightning, consisting of a reddish, luminous ball, of the order of 0.3m in diameter, which may move rapidly along solid objects or remain floating in midair.

In nature, the phenomenon is associated with thunderstorm activity. It can also be produced by high voltage multiple-resonator Tesla oscillators.
