Ball Lightning or Ghost Lights: England, 1786

On September 2nd, 1786, a hurricane struck England. Accompanying the hurricane was a "bright ball of fire and light," the nature of which has never been fully explained. While some researchers have suggested it could have been Ball Lightning, it lasted for a full 40 minutes and did not disappear with a signature explosion. The inexplicable phenomenon may have been more closely related to the phenomena known as Ghost Lights.
