When i was about 10 and my brother about 7. we had a large orange ball swoop down over out house in the middle of the day and take off the top of a large pine tree. It left the upper tree burnt and smoldering, but not on fire.
My parents wrote it off as lightning (there was no storm).
The best scientific theory I could find is granite fissures causing plasma discharge.
Who knows though. One of the those mysteries.

What?!? It left behind physical evidence? Does this tree still exist? If so you should have it studied.
Tell me what you think of this, and yes, there should still be evidence left even after this long time.

I live in northern Indiana which sees a lot of traffic over head from Ohare and Midway. I recall seeing an orange ball traveling in the sky to the north of us. Seemed to move very slow. It was not an airplane. This was about 18 years ago.
