Re: Ball Lightning from high-amp discharge

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?

You may be able to create something which looks like the reports
of something but it isn't obvious how you can ever know you're
right. A friend of mine created small fireballs [ball lightning?] by
hooking rubber insulated wire to the top terminal of his TC and
pulling the rubber off the end a bit so the streamer passed through
the rubber and set it on fire. I think others here have done the
same thing or at least something similar.
