Rare Ball lightning over Bergamo, Italy

EU Storm Map

For us this is one of the most fascinating types of lightning, beyond rare, its so rare that many people disbelieve. We receive only 1-2 reports per year in Europe and this is the 2nd one we have seen in 2017.
Observed in Italy around 1:30AM in Bergamo 14th July during severe warned storms (STA) on map… immediately after the strong pulsing glow came a very strong smell of sulphur, a common trait with ball lightning reports. No sign of fire the following morning and this occurred some 2-3 meters above the tree tops on a hillside in front of the observers home. Thank you Patrizia Lapatty Bersani for the info, video and time given (Y) simply amazing!
