Ball lightning swept through wires in Florida

Recently, an unusual natural phenomenon, ball lightning, was captured on video in the vicinity of St. Petersburg, Florida, USA.

In front of the astonished onlookers, who exclaimed "Oh, my God!", a glowing bluish sphere swept through the wires, at one point even splitting into two parts.

This mysterious ball lightning, if it really was so, emitted a distinct "electric" hum, but at the same time, curiously, there was no noticeable haze emanating either from the phenomenon itself or from the wires it touched.

In those days, a powerful storm and thunderstorm broke out in Florida. It is assumed that the ball lightning occurred due to a short circuit, high humidity and possible damage to electrical wires.

Ball lightning remains an exceptionally rare natural phenomenon, if it is, of course, a natural phenomenon at all, and not a manifestation of some supernatural forces.

Science, despite the fact that it likes to explain literally everything to show its greatness in the case of ball lightning, has not been able to give a reasonable explanation for this phenomenon and therefore usually tries not to comment on such phenomena and even deny the very fact of their existence

The problem is that it is necessary to reproduce ball lightning under controlled conditions; attempts in laboratories usually ended in failure, and any successes lasted only a few fractions of seconds.

Its steady existence requires a huge amount of energy, so the question arises: how does it gain such significant energy if eyewitnesses observed its calm movement across the sky for several seconds or even minutes during spontaneous observations?
