The Occurrence of Ball Plasma
Ball plasma is a rarely observed form of energy caused by a combination of solar wind, earth’s magnetic field and tectonic events. It is a form of a charged balanced vortex of particles that can have a lengthy duration. The main characteristics are one of ‘mirroring’, ‘attraction and repulsion’, and discharge. Light hitting the ‘ball’ can have a curious effect of being carried along by the field before re-emitted, this displacement causing a concentration of light giving much darker and lighter areas, in some cases discharges being more of a short lived beam like effect.
Energy discharges from the sun sometimes when it hits the earths magnetic field transforms into a ball shaped plasma that follows the magnetic fields similar to aurorae, usually from north to south. These usually float down to the earth and quickly discharge through the atmosphere, but at time they can be very concentrated, deformed into a flattened spheroid by the forces of gravity.
A piezoelectric field generated by plate or fault movement, the large-scale deformation of igneous rocks allowing the vortices to form quite often enhances generation of these effects.
As they have either a positive or negative intrinsic charge on the outside they can be either attracted or repelled by nearby objects in the sky such as storm clouds or things like aircraft, but generally follow magnetic fields and airflows at particular heights. The phenomenon of ‘St. Elmo’s Fire’ is a lesser form of this that is seen to cling to higher objects like masts. The plasma ball clinging to airflows and attracted to passing object travelling through the sky that cause a charged wake of particles. Passing close will attract them into the path like hitching a lift, the only problem being if it catches up, or an aircraft passing through it’s own particle wake and meeting up with it, when it will discharge into the airframe if of a different surface charge.
If the main outside field has a positive charge they will not completely reach the ground but be repelled by it until the equilibrium in the ball reasserts itself causing the ball to collapse, or a field in the clouds attracts it upward to dissipate in them, the mass of the plasma balancing the repelling force.
If the ball is higher up in the atmosphere and balanced then it would take more of a ball shape, passing storms of objects elongating it, and closer to the earth it’s mass causing it to deform more into an elliptical shape, the closer to the earth and the greater the density the more elliptical.
The pattern of forces in the object causes light to reflect from it like in a mirror, giving the impression of constant movement, really only partially reflecting images of nearby objects or at about a similar angle of the object to the observer, the closer to right angle on the surface the more acute the angle. If the field is strong then this light could be concentrated before being released again, making it a short-term accumulator.
Because of the highly charged particles it seems solid, but having very little real substance, mainly being made of patterns of force, the main substance being gas, dust and light, attracted by other fields and patterns of force, similar in diffraction to the greying out of a distant object, the reflection giving a ‘metallic’ seeming sheen, the energy transfers giving a dispersed ‘lit up glow’ at dusk or night-time. When it it closer to the earth’s surface the ionising discharge can be seen clearly around the edges of the flattened field, also the allowing for the collapse of the field, appearing as a smaller and smaller shape as it dissipates, shrinking to a point before it disappears. Because the human brain is not suffiently familiar with an object that shrinks and disappears in such a fashion, like a collection of single frames appearing as movement, this can often be mistaken for movement away from the observer, when it is in fact just shrinking into non-existence and a fairly homogenous background.
Because the ball or spheroid that it becomes still is rotating and charges still constantly transferring the movement, repulsion, and attraction would mirror this and probable cause a ‘bobbing motion’ as it changes position.
All in all this is a hard to pin down phenomena that can appear in many forms depending on the circumstances, but being basically of the same source and type, the environment dictating the shapes and effects that it produces.
