Down comes a deluge of sonorous hail, Or prone-descending rain. Wide-rent, the clouds Pour an entire flood, and but, its flame unquenched, Th’unconquerable lightning struggles via. Ragged and fierce, or in crimson 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 lower than, 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 file in Nature in 1976 that obtained around the world exposure and that i for this reason many folks wrote to me with money owed in their personal studies. inside of a really couple of minutes, I had accrued approximately 2 hundred firsthand bills, and the dossier has persisted to develop progressively considering then. a number of issues inspired me. Few of these who wrote to me had any distinct foreknowledge of ball lightning on the time in their remark. still, as soon as stories of different phenomena comparable to St. Elmo’s fireplace were eradicated, the rest descriptions have been remarkably constant. moreover, approximately all who contacted me have been willing to have a proof of what they'd visible and appeared completely sincere.
