"Since the time of the early Greeks, there HAve been reports of small balls of bright plasma-like light moving over the ground and then vanishing."

WOW, spinning me out!!
My Greek grandfather used to talk about this phenomenon all the time, he called it ASTROPELEKI.
It was very common on his home island of Samos!!

Shared with my husband. He had told me that he had seen it inside his house years ago.
