One of the most astonishing phenomena occasionally revealed by the Nature is ball lightning. Observed during thunderstorms it appears as a free-floating spherical or nearly spherical luminous gaseous body the lifetime of which substantially surpasses the duration of its emergence. Each year, hundreds of eyewitness accounts of such strange events are reported to local journals, police and even military authorities. Appearing randomly, their scientific investigation is very difficult. So, the elucidation of its genuine origin remained one of the most intriguing and enduring challenges of the contemporary science. This book presents current research in the phenomenology of ball lightning and its relevance for other enigmas of nature. (Imprint: Nova)
