A Ball Lightning or BL is a rare atmospheric phenomenon still poorly explained, often associated with thunderstorms, bright, approximate spherical with a core of plasma, a typical size between 5-30 cm in diameter, usually lasts less than 50 seconds and often irregular in motion, moves mainly in a horizontal direction with speeds between 0.1 and 10 m/s.
