Electroballs are masses of air electrified surrounded by a layer of air charged with the opposite electric charge. They could look transparent, opaque, misty,  translucent, reflective, brilliant and show different colors and properties.

They have resemblance to atoms so they use to form “molecules” when combined by electro-magnetic forces.  Magnetic forces exist too but the forces considered in this text are only electric.

Electroballs don’t have any limit in size, but has been observed that ball lightning, a kind of electroball, use to be of different sizes but it has commonly a diameter around 25 cm so I suppose in the next examples there aren’t very big differences in charge when they are of the same size and share the same origin but in reality they could differ strongly.

Depending on the prevailing charge they will be attracted or repelled to other electroballs. The prevailing charge changes in quantity and even in sign so the combination is often a “shape-shifter”.

Sometimes they share an external layer in such a way that the surface hides the electroballs inside making it difficult to understand. I don’t know if that shared layer is a third one.

This drawing shows the most common shapes and combinations.   

 Some combinations of electroballs can be simulated with magnets.

In two dimensions, magnets behave like charges would do.

In these examples, the colors represent the sign of the electric charge.

A common case is when there are two electroballs of different prevailing charges combined. They align vertically if the ground is charged too.


If they are of very different sizes they form the shape “ice cream cone” like this seen in Argentina.



The famous Tic-Tac UFO could be made up of two or three electroballs. L – shaped “antennas” may be air leaks bent by the speed through the air.

With three electroballs those with the same charge repel on to each other so they move to opposite sides.

If four electroballs or more are in a row it use to be called “cigar shaped UFO”  specially if the external layer envelopes them.

If three electroballs surround another one with the opposite charge they will be placed in the same plane around it and keeping distances because they repel at the same time. This seems to be the TR3B.

If two pairs of electroballs with opposite charges connect, but not in line, they could form this shape like a square.

I think this is the type seen in the famous 1561 celestial phenomenon over Nuremberg, forming “crosses” among them, may be while sharing plasma.

Sometimes only the plasma was visible, not the electroballs.

These are the most common shapes in two dimensions, in three dimensions they could be forming triangular pyramids, like the UFO in Pentyrch, UK, in 2016, or “diamonds” like the ufo intercepted in Tehran in 1976.

In the famous 1561 celestial phenomenon over Nuremberg It is possible to identify single electroballs, groups of four sharing plasma (I suppose), and cigar shaped.

The crosses without visible electroballs probably are formed by some transparent ones, only visible with IR cameras.

The weird auroras and the black “spike” will have to wait a bit more to be explained.

And the case of this Hessdalen UAP looking strongly like a TR3B type where the red one seems to have more charge than the others. That would explain why the lower balls are further from it and why it is higher of the ground by bigger repulsion to it.

Sometimes, if the electroball is under the influence of strong external electric fields the forces involved distort its shape like a “tear drop” shape.

Lenticular clouds are often electroballs too but with less pressure inside.

“Flying saucers” seem to be formed by lenticular clouds sometimes combined with other electroballs of different kinds.

In the next pictures there are four lenticular clouds vertically aligned and attracted to a mountain. The clouds don’t collide with the mountain because the external layer has the same charge than the mountain so they repel at short distance reaching a stable position. In the last image it is possible to see that balance simulated with magnets. The big magnets represent opposite charges so they are attracted, but the little magnets around have the opposite “charge” than the magnet inside so they repel the other magnet at short distances keeping the distance to it without colliding.

The typical “flying saucer” with lights around could look like this one. It would be formed by a lenticular cloud surrounded by ball lightning of different colors attracted to it but repelling each other. The lenticular cloud would be stretched and flattened by the electroballs around.

So it is possible that the typical flying saucer is formed by the combination of a “metallic” electroball with many ball lightning placed around it.

The little electroballs keep the position by their own balance of forces as they stretch the big one in the center.

If they are too compressed in the edge some will jump to another level creating another line of lights, like in the example.

If the electroball in the middle is transparent the ball lightnings around form a ring.

Probably, in the past, it was misidentified as an angels choir.

To end, this images show how electroballs can reproduce by leaking its content of air or plasma through a hole in the external layer.
