Ball Lightning is Weird
Ball Lightning is an unexplained and potentially dangerous atmospheric electrical phenomenon. Reports of ball lightning date back further than the 1600s, and scientists long regarded its existence as something of an urban legend.
This is no longer the case, as Ball Lightning has been captured on high resolution cameras, and witnessed personally by legitimate scientists. A 1988 study analyzed over 10,000 cases of the phenomenon. Despite accepting its existence, no one really knows what it is. There is no theory on Ball Lightning that is able to explain all of its bizarre properties.
Witnesses have reported seeing Ball Lightning fall from the sky, pass through solid objects without doing damage, explode, disappear, fizzle, pop, move up down and horizontally, destroy objects, kill animals and humans, and start fires. In one particularly strange case, Ball Lightning appeared inside of a moving airplane, floated above the aisle, and moved slowly toward the back of the plane before disappearing without further incident. 
Because of its glowing globular appearance, Ball Lightning may be the explanation surrounding many UFO sightings. Imagine seeing a sphere of glowing light floating outside, and watching it travel around and perhaps even pass through a wall and into your home. Something like 5% of people report witnessing ball lightning at some point in their life.
The most unbelievable part of the whole thing has to be its ability to appear out of nowhere. How did that thing come to life inside of an airplane? And why does ball lightning sometimes violently explode, and other times fizzle out or disappear altogether? Is our lack of a working theory on ball lightning the result of its rarity, or because its true explanation closer resembles something out of the Twilight Zone. Perhaps ball lightning is a form of intelligence, or the manifestation of some strange demon. Speaking of which, Aleister Crowley himself reported experiencing the phenomenon.
“British occultist Aleister Crowley reported witnessing what he referred to as “globular electricity” during a thunderstorm on Lake Pasquaney in New Hampshire in 1916. He was sheltered in a small cottage when he “noticed, with what I can only describe as calm amazement, that a dazzling globe of electric fire, apparently between six and twelve inches (15–30 cm) in diameter, was stationary about six inches below and to the right of my right knee. As I looked at it, it exploded with a sharp report quite impossible to confuse with the continuous turmoil of the lightning, thunder and hail, or that of the lashed water and smashed wood which was creating a pandemonium outside the cottage. I felt a very slight shock in the middle of my right hand, which was closer to the globe than any other part of my body.”” 
There’s no way around it, Ball Lightning is weird.
