I believe I witnessed ball lightening in my youth as well. It was either that or a severe hallucination out of nowhere.

This was a long time ago when I was in high school, so my memory of it is a little hazy but I recall being in my parent's house; I can't remember if it was storming outside or not but there was a big, loud snap or pop and I swore I saw a ball of light just blink in and out of existence - like a two foot arc-flash in midair, like a bubble bursting - in the center of the living room. I suppose the house may just have been struck by lightening and I saw it going to ground somehow. I remember excitedly telling my dad about the big ball of light I just saw but I don't think he ever really believed me.
