Down comes a deluge of sonorous hail, Or prone-descending rain. Wide-rent, the clouds Pour a complete flood, and but, its flame unquenched, Th’unconquerable lightning struggles via. Ragged and fierce, or in purple whirling balls, And fires the mountains with redoubled rage. Black from the stroke, above, the smould’ring pine Stands a tragic shattered trunk; and, stretched under, a dull workforce the blasted farm animals lie. James Thompson, “The Seasons” (1727) were investigating ball lightning for greater than twenty years. I released a ball lightning record in Nature in 1976 that bought around the world exposure and that i therefore many folks wrote to me with money owed in their personal reviews. inside of a truly short while, I had accrued approximately 2 hundred firsthand bills, and the dossier has endured to develop progressively because then. numerous issues inspired me. Few of these who wrote to me had any particular foreknowledge of ball lightning on the time in their statement. still, as soon as stories of different phenomena reminiscent of St. Elmo’s fireplace were eradicated, the remainder descriptions have been remarkably constant. in addition, approximately all who contacted me have been prepared to have an evidence of what they'd obvious and appeared fullyyt sincere.
