Great find right there mate and yet another curious account - thanks for posting it.
Have also been reading a lot of very freaky ball lightning accounts recently (thread on the way) and came across this crazy report from Wallachia on August 15th, 1663.
Apparently a huge flaming sphere about 130 feet in diameter was witnessed by townsfolk coming out of the sky and hovering over the surface of a nearby lake whilst projecting two beams which penetrated the water - 2 peasants in a boat couldn't get near it due to the heat but they said the beams reached the bottom of the lake.
I was camping and fishing at Lake Eufaulla, when I saw lights in the sky. I watched them for a few minutes as they came closer to the waters surface completely silently.
It hovered over the water and all lights went off. I could still see it clearly in the moonlight; it was triangular/teardrop in shape.
It was huge; at least 90 ft. wide maybe 20 ft. tall. Something cylindrical extended from beneath and touched the surface of the water. It stayed that way for about 5 minutes, then it went back in and the object very quickly went back up so fast the water splashed and made waves.
Once it was up about 300 ft. the lights came back on and it sped off north and up.
Not ten minutes later there was a large black chopper with only one small tail light which circled the area, then hovered in the same area for no more that 15 seconds,spotlighting the water.
Vinicius da Silva and Marta Rosenthal were returning home from a day of fishing in the River Tocantis when they felt a bump in one of the tires. Thinking he had a flat Vinicius stopped the vehicle and went to check. He could not find anything wrong with the tire but suddenly heard Marta screaming and saw her pointing to the right side of the road.
There, only a few meters away, hovering over the water was a metallic object with small windows along its edge. Standing outside the object on a ledge was a humanoid figure of about 1.30 meters in height. The figure was holding something resembling a hose and was apparently sucking water from the river and into the craft. After about two minutes the humanoid pulled up the hose from the river and re-entered the object. The craft then became very fright and shot away horizontally into the sky.

67-year old Joâo Inacio Ribeiro was walking along the oceanfront when he saw a circular object about 10 meters in diameter approach from the sea. It had brilliant blue, yellow, green, and lilac colored lights. On its upper section it had a sort of cabin or cupola with 3 circular windows.
The craft approached, stopped, and hovered above the waters, causing the area directly below the object to become agitated and choppy. Ribeiro then saw two short humanoids appear on top of the craft. The figures were about 1 meter in height, and wore gray colored tight fitting outfits.
The beings were baldheaded, with small noses and mouths and huge black eyes. One carried something resembling a walking cane; the other had what appeared to be a vacuum cleaner like object. Both beings then began operating the vacuum like object seemingly extracting water from the ocean. After 10 minutes they re-entered the object. Moments later the object descended to 10 meters above the waters causing them to become even more turbulent, creating large waves and foam. Afraid Ribeiro ran home. (Revista Brasileira de Ufologia)
