S Wales, sighted over the bay Port talbot
S Wales, Swansea Bay
Between 9:15 to 9:30pm = Lots of believed ball lightning
I looked out to clouds above the sea from my upper bedroom window and
was surprised to see a very bright what looked to be a firework in clouds
over the bay.
It lasted around 15 seconds or more then the bright flashes
changed and vanished then ones and two came back and moved from one
part of cloud out down under across and back into same cloud; many very
bright and not so bright what looked like meteors that went from cloud to
sea and some that went from the sea to clouds and some that just lit up
travelled across horizontally below clouds then disappeared as if going
back into the clouds individually and a set of 2 one bright one orange went
up to clouds?
There were no lightning strikes this time but did look like a storm head
crossing bay= It was daylight to my right hand side, but dark because
of layering clouds to my left. It was off to the left i saw the lights in
a darker part of the cloud layering and out below it.
To explain it... the first sight was a multiple of about 15 to 20 sudden
bright lights appear and sparkle and alternate places sort of fade in and
out, then there were single lights some bright white some an orange colour
but mainly bright white or dim white that moved in many directions.
I am not mad, better still = my partner also saw a few of them.
And I also saw very similar in storm clouds that had lightning about
3 weeks ago almost in same place that were also witnessed by a friend
on that occasion looking over the bay from a Hill/mountainside.
This occasion were all bright white various degrees of brightness.
Some very visible, some NOT SO VISIBLY BRIGHT.
I believe I have seen ball lightning = as from last night dislay = Youtube
videos are identical to what we observed last night only we saw all
types not just one, we saw twins move in one direction then sudden
change back, some go just below the clouds like meteors moving a
short distance, some rapidly some rather slowly.
Awesome. But by watching a stack of videos about ball lightning
I am positive that is what WE SAW, had just seen a display that
was like all ball light videos.
Last night it lasted about 15 mins on and off, near coast in S Wales.
I tried to get it on cam but was to late by time i went got cam out.
I did drive down to beach with cam but then ones i saw were not
bright enough and cam would not focus into dark clouds
So again looking at the videos of you-tube it would be Ball lightning.
