Ball Lightning: Louise Matthews

Louise Matthews was lying on her couch in South Philadelphia during the summer of 1960 when she heard something sizzling.  She saw a large, red ball coming through her window, leaving the Venetian blinds undamaged.

The ball lightning (presumably) continued through Mrs. Matthews' living room into the dining room, where it exited the house through another closed window.  Again, the window was undamaged.

Mrs. Matthews later noticed that the back of her hand was burned.  The hair at the back of her head later fell out, leaving the skin beneath as smooth as that on her face.
