Ball Lightning (Again) Used to Explain UFOs!
Australian astrophysicist Stephen Hughes claims that “ball lightning” may explain some usual lights seen in over Brisbane in 2006. He went further to argue:
If you put together inexplicable atmospheric phenomena, maybe of an electrical nature, with human psychology and the desire to see something – that could explain a lot of these UFO sightings.
It should be noted that “ball lightning” has been one of the go to “explanations” for UFOs for decades. And, though it sounds scientific, so-called “ball lightning” is a unproven phenomena. Color us crazy, but we’ve never understood the validity of explaining one unproven phenomena with another.
Roll on swamp gas …
