He has an interesting paper [.pdf] here: >http://tinyurl.com/7t4fu3g Interesting idea, although it seems like such a correlation (ball lightning associated with recent passage of a meteor) would have been noted observationally by now, if indeed meteors are a dominant mechanism of formation. What I found even more interesting, if not obviously related to atmospheric phenomena, is the "air threads" phenomenon he references, which is described in more detail at http://amasci.com/weird/unusual/airthred.html I've already ordered the requisite ion generator (~$5).
