Plasma Orbs Strike Electrical Equipment near Kaliningrad, Russia
August 11, 2011
Ball lightning struck a bus with German tourists near Russia's western city of Kaliningrad, chairwoman of the regional tourist association Tamara Toropova said on Thursday.
None of the 19 passengers on board the bus was injured when the ball lightning struck the bus during a thunderstorm on Monday.
"The bus, a Setra, was absolutely new; it was literally stuffed with electronic gadgets. Near the entrance to the city [Kaliningrad], some 30 kilometers away from it, ball lightning struck the lightning rod antenna, spread over the vehicle, headed toward the power supply unit and then exploded," Toropova said, adding that the fireball also blew off three of the bus's wheels.
The vehicle is irreparable, but is also on warranty in Germany and will be taken there by ferry.
Ball lightning events such as this latest on a bus near Kaliningrad are the result of an ultra-low frequency resonance of standing waves, much like the standing waves Nikola Tesla experimented with that also caused destructive ball lightning events in his laboratories. The erratic source of these infrasound standing waves are solar flares transduced as atmospheric vibrations that are focused by the Orion pyramids of Giza, Egypt.
Kaliningrad, Russia (54.70°N 20.50°E) is 1,787 miles from Giza, or 7.2% of the Earth's mean circumference distance (of 24,892 miles). Another amazing event of this kind, on a greater magnitude, occurred recently in Soesterberg, Netherlands.
This ball lightning event is a more visible form of the unusual infrasound fires that have been reported in various other focal points around the world. In various other cases, vibrating cellphones and shavers have spontaneously ignited by this same effect, as reported in Tenerife, Babura, Abuja, Bauchi, Jos, Omukondo, Onakaheke, Tsholotsho, Lalapansi, Goodhope, Mapuve, Bodibe, Bloemfontein, Hopewell, Landovica, Longford, Dublin, Hull, Egham, Wisbech, Glasgow, Messina, Peschici, Berici, across northern Greece, Ratria, Kakori, Mumbai, Kolkata, Charajpura, Thiruvananthapuram, Kishtwar, Rangrik, Kota Baru, Kuala Lumpur, Santo Tomas, Rockhampton, Adelaide, Eaglehawk, Sydney, Georgetown, La Pampa, Melipilla, and in the US in Seattle, Soudan SP, Minneapolis, New Ulm, Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Anderson, Homosassa, San Mateo, Vallejo, San Francisco, Hope Ranch, Santa Barbara, Clovis, Calaveras, Haverhill, Peabody, Brentwood and New York City.
