Whatever it was, I have never experienced anything like it before or since, and I continue to thoroughly enjoy a good thunderstorm.Mary Gallion USA - Friday, May 25, 2012 at (PDT) I may have been about 14/15 in the passenger seat of my grandfathers car driving on an outer-city Brisbane (Aus) road, and I distinctively remember in the distance seeing some weird electrical jellyfish floating in the sky.The ball was a little larger than a baseball and appeared white with a yellowish tinge.
The "ball" made no course changes, just traveled in a straight line about 3 feet off the ground.
It struck him square in the chest and blew his shirt off of him.
The ceiling and walls appear covered with a moving pattern of pale "worm shaped" lights (just a lighter shade of "dark, if that makes sense---no color.) Am lying on my back and notice, peripherally, a soft orange-yellow glow coming from down low behind my husband's nightstand which is in a corner of the room.
Am wearing earplugs, so don't know if there're any accompanying noises.
Instantaneously, a bright light appeared in the middle of my room it was a ball of 20cm floating with a soft trembling (120cm over the floor), its color was the color of the "electricity", I mean the same color of lightings, it was there by 3-5sec then suddenly again desappeared, no explosion, no sound.
I was alone with closed doors, my window also closed but the curtains were open.I wasn't precisely afraid, but I did decide it would be a good idea to move to the end of the couch away from the sliding door for the duration of the storm.At the time, I had never heard of ball lightning and thought that somehow an electrical charge must have built up on the metal frame of the door due to the storm.I could never work out what it was until someone told me of that there was a moron friend of his going around talking about some ball lightning he had witnessed, it's a shame they cannot be recreated.Karl On November 15, 2011 I had a very unusal experience.In the spring of 1984, my youngest brother was struck and killed by "a ball of lightning".
