What follows is a transcript of a message I received from a good friend that lives in that area of what he thought was ball lightning. The event took place in July 17, 20015. I have looked at the weather from that day and it did not seem very conducive to lightning of any kind, but ball lightning by nature defies convention. I think he may have seen something. What are your thoughts? Is there anyone here in that area that maybe saw something similar?
"I was driving Approx 70mph westbound on 80/94 about 7 miles from the Torrence ave exit I saw a crackling ball of energy slowly Bob and weave through the sky (very plainly I might add) for a total time of about 9 seconds. It was also moving about 15-20mph (perceived) gaining altitude as it literally zig zagged."
