    What is ball lightning and continuous lightning, and how does it behave scientifically?

    What sustains it?  How do the charges arrange themselves within the phenomenon?  Why does it happen?  Where does it usually occur?

    Ball lightning is a phenominal disharge of electric current created by friction within a thunderstorm, that has no real scientific explanation. Since electricity can change it's shape based on outside moisture and static influences, then lightning can take on almost any form or shape. As for continuous lightning, it is most common within severe thunderstorms, which produce the lightning based on continuous strong up and downdrafts and rain. Those are what cause the intense energy given off by friction.
