I suppose it doesn't have to be numerically dominant in the whole messy class of BL-like events, but could be dominant in a certain subclass whose signature properties (colour, size, duration, motion, whatever) might allow it to be extracted and studied. >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).
