Ball Lightning: A Shocking Scientific Mystery
Here's a refreshingly nice article from a mainstream publisher, National Geographic. Rather brief, but very open-minded... which of course is a Good Thing. There seems to be an upswing in the research efforts laboratories are putting into this fascinating phenomenon. Perhaps they are finally coming around to realizing that at least some Fortean events need to be understood in order to get closer to the big picture of what exactly is really going on around us.
My query to the publisher is if this well done story... my solitary quibble being that they said ball lightning burns though windows while most reports claim it does no damage... based largely on the testimony of Dr. Graham Hubler, a physicist at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, can make it through... then why not articles on UFO events... after all, they could ring up Dr. Bruce Maccabee, a physicist at the U.S. Naval Surface Warfare Center?
