You take a phenomenon that is quite rare, and when it does occur, is very often terrifying; and you think that there should be lots of videos of it?


When somebody sees ball lightning, it's a mighty good bet that they've never seen it before in their lives. If they're not petrified with terror, they'll be busy trying to figure out just what exactly the thing is. If they're too frightened for that, then they'll be too frightened to even think about recording it.
