Ball Lightning: A Secret Transport Medium For An Unknown Lifeform?

Ball lightning is a phenomenon that continues to baffle scientists the world over. Its volatile and dynamic nature make it practically impossible to place under a microscope for closer scrutiny.

While the scientific community has learned a great deal about the phenomenon, researchers have still been unable to replicate the anomaly. Naturally occurring ball lightning doesn’t rise, and every replication attempt has resulted in a manifestation that does.
