Re: Ball Lightning from high-amp discharge

Original poster: Mddeming@xxxxxxx

This new group was scientifically rigorous enough NOT to call their observed phenomenon ball lightning, but to indicate that it may have a similar type of mechanism of formation. and some similar behaviors. This brings up an interesting epistemological question.Is it possible to RE-create something in a laboratory if you don't know what IT is to start with?

But if anyone here has an appropriate supply, there's still something
can explore:  striking those balls with a TC discharge.   Corum and
noted that the small BLs that they created with two mis-tuned TCs would
grow much larger after being hit with a streamer.

  Hey Bill,
     Did  you get my offlist email?   Anyway,   I don't think these
guys quite got it the way Tesla did.....but it was a cool video.
