Scientific theories and experiments have failed to convince a physicist what's behind the mysterious natural phenomenon of ball lightning.
Emeritus Professor Bob Crompton of the Australian National University gave a presentation in Canberra this week on the latest scientific investigations into ball lightning, something once considered as likely as UFOs.
"I don't believe there is any satisfactory explanation so far," says Crompton for these small bright lights that appear after a lightning strike.
Crompton says ball lightning is a bright light, anywhere in size from a golf ball to larger than a football.
It hovers above the ground, moving slowly, able to pass through walls, until it vanishes minutes later.
