Lightning balls created in the lab

My mother talked about seeing ball lightening as a child. While I didn't doubt her, I also didn't understand how that was possible. Later in life I found out that it was a documented if poorly understood phenomenon. Now a group of scientists in Brazil have managed to recreate this bizzare natural, event. The article seen here describes what they have accomplished. Neat stuff.
