Title: MODEL TESTS ON BALL LIGHTNING; Modellversuche zum Kugelblitz

Abstract

Ball lightning phenomena and properties gleaned from a collection of observations are examined. The observations of a diffusion combustion of minute gas admixtures in air are thoroughly examined because they display the greatest resemblance to natural ball lightning. A comparison of properties with the qualities of the luminous clouds during diffusion combustion shows very good agreement. (W.D.M.)
