No. 22: Jul-Aug 1982
September 1981. Berkhamsted, England.
"I was resting on my settee listening to music on the Third Programme when there was some interference of a crackling kind. Suddenly, a ball of bright light appeared in front of my radio. It was about the size of a large orange. It was dazzlingly white and gave the appearance of dozens of stick crystals 5.0 mm in length jigging about with a crackling sound. By the time I reached the switch it had disappeared, but a loud burst of thunder broke overhead."(Cook, M.L.; "Ball Lightning Incident in Berkhamsted, 13 September 1981." Journal of Meteorology, U.K., 7:18, 1982.)
