I used to see these a lot, so did my Mum.
Like small vortices in the air, not high but usually low down just above floor / ground level. They only lasted for a moment and were gone again.
Does that sound similar?
The dust devils are certainly common.
Maybe there is a scientific explanation and they are common?
Like the dust devil, it too is made of dirt, except the dirt glows with ball lightning.
The recorded glow was about 5 meters across—the actual size of the ball was much smaller—and it changed from white to reddish during the second or so that it lasted. Although the darkness prevented the researchers from estimating the ball’s altitude, they saw it drift horizontally for about 10 meters and ascend about 3 meters.
