Caption: Artist's impression of ball lightning. Although physicists are sceptical about its existence, there have been many reports of sightings of ball lightning. The long-lived, glowing spheres, up to a metre across, are said to move slowly and erratically, eventually exploding or quietly vanishing. Ball lightning has been reported appearing inside closed rooms and even aircraft, as well as outdoors.
