I've been researching about the phenomenon of ball lightning and St. Elmo's Fire, and I found this interesting passage about a ball lightening supposedly happening on an Eastern jet in 1963:
One of the best observations of ball lightening (for of mobile St. Elmo's fire) occurred when Professor R. C. Jenninson of the Electronics Laboratories at the University of Kent, was flying in an Eastern Airlines Jet from New York to Washington in March of 1963. The plane was caught in a thunderstorm and struck by lightning. Shortly thereafter, a glowing sphere emerged from the pilots cabin and floated down the aisle. The ball continued down the aisle and disappeared near the rear lavatory.
Does anybody have any further info or links? Is this made up or did it really happen?
