Rare ball lightening caught on video in Siberia!

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

A unique video of a giant fireball moving across a Siberian field could be the latest proof that ball lightning is not an urban myth, but a real natural phenomenon.

Novosibirsk State Technical University graduate Roman Tregubov, who currently resides in Canada, posted this video he took in the countryside just outside Novosibirsk while visiting Russia in July.


“This is the first time I’ve seen a ball lightning!!!! I even managed to film it a little… Awesome,” Roman emotionally captioned the video he shared on his Facebook page on July 18, 2016.

“Anyway I was shocked to see such a big and strong fireball… And whole process from his birth to death… Sounds… Visual… Feelings…[sic],” Tregubov continued.


He later made the video public and the sighting of the rare phenomenon was quickly shared with a much wider audience, making it into various Russian media outlets.

Up to the 1960s ball lightning was considered an urban myth and due to inconsistencies and to the lack of reliable data, the true nature of the phenomenon remains unknown.

These fireballs can dramatically vary in size from as little as a pea to several meters in diameter. This particular sighting is supposedly a large one.
