Science of Ball Lightning   1988 Waseda Univ.   Y.H.Ohtsuki, ed.
International Symposium on Ball Lightning
Pub:  World Scientific, 1989, Teaneck, NJ
http://home.wxs.nl/~icblsec/pg_ohtsu.html


  A collection of papers from a recent symposium.  I was particularly 
  fascinated by the large number of videotapes of BL made by the public
  in Japan, where camcorders are apparently more common than in the US.

Fire Balls, Fractals, and Colorado Springs: A Rediscovery of Tesla's RF
Techniques, PROCEEDINGS OF THE 1990 INTERNATIONAL TESLA SYMPOSIUM
by Kenneth L. Corum & Dr. James F. Corum
Pub: International Tesla Society, Colorado Springs CO
http://www.tesla.org

  Corum and Corum reproduce Nikola Tesla's BL production technique!
  This type of BL arises when RF arcs with impulsive envelopes
  vaporise carbon, and the Corums believe the phenomena to be a sort of
  stable combustion process with carbon or copper and ozone, with a 
  diffusion-limited agglomeration structure (aerogel) which somehow
  slows the combustion process.  Their 'fireballs' range in size
  up to 5cm, last several seconds, change color with time, and some-
  times terminate existance with a bang.  Numerous photos and video
  stillframes of the phenomena.
