I've just had a similar experience this morning like 3AM I was sleeping and I suddenly woke up WIH my eyes wide open and there was this white ball thingy in front of me and it was in front of my dresses which is a deep rustic turquoise color so I knew it wasn't my furniture bc some of my furniture/accessories are white. But anyway yeah I saw this white ball of light and my windows are closed with blinds and curtains shut so I know it can't be from outside. It wasn't scary it was just there so I turned the lights on and I couldn't see it anymore. And also a few days before this I saw a red flash of light in my room like a red dot and then it left idk what it was or what the white light ball thingy is but they were in my room. It wasn't scary though but now I just can't sleep because I keep thinking about it and that's how I found this forum lol

I didn't realize that there were no fireflies in England. I've learned something new today then. :)

Also your description doesn't sound like a firefly anyway.

Ball lightning is so rare, from what I understand, that you could practically rule it out period.

So I'm out of explanations in your case, marty13.

Just a note to say we do4 have fireflies in the uk, quite scarce but we fo have them

Sorry to be such a pedantic ol' b*****, but the sad fact is that we don't get fireflies in this country, we have glow worms. Fireflies are a different species from glow worms, though they are both members of the same overall family. The closest to Britain that fireflies are seen is Belgium.

Fireflies glow while they are flying, but glow worms just sit where they are and glow, though female fireflies may not actually fly but just sit there and wait for the males to find them, just as the glow worms do. Sometimes people talk of fireflies and actually mean glow worms, which remain static.

About 10 years ago, my wife and I saw two glowing balls about the size of small melons pass silently through our living room quite slowly.

This happened on two occasions a few days apart but never since.

Recording this experience first drew me to this forum.

I'm guessing it was ball lightning of some sort.

Not sure if anyone will see this now as this thread was so long ago, but just wanted to add an experience I had which was back in around 2009/2010. I was going through a pretty tough time emotionally with a relationship breaking down, a mortgage to worry about and children to break my heart over, and was crying out emotionally for an answer. One night, probably around 11pm ish, I was laying on one of the couches in the living room in complete darkness, thinking, asking in my head, worrying probably...the living room at that time was quite large and high ceiling with a staircase to my left, where my  head was. There was a large window at the top of these stairs and I became aware of a light which I first thought was a torch light being shone through the window. It took me a few seconds for my mind to go from 'a burglar is breaking in and looking through windows with  torch' to 'hold on, that window is high up at the side of thehouse', when the light began to move slowly towards me. It also began to get bigger and change colour, so what started off as a small muted white light, over the period if I had to say it of around 10 seconds, became orange and looked like a fireball (but not deep orange) and got to the size of a small melon, right in front of me on the sofa. I watched it hover there (actually at this point I was convinced this was how spontanious combustion must happen and I was about to set fire through this ball - so little time had passed but it's amazing how many thoughts you can have in so little time) when I watched it sink towards the rug and just...dissapear. I mean it just went out. I can't even remember it getting smaller although a part of my mind says it did.

I just want to add that very soon after this, things happened quickly to move and start a new life. I'm not going to say it was easy but after this happened, it felt like a defining point and things started to change quickly and easier than I first catastrophised.

I just wonder if anyone has anything similar to this, or indeed an answer. I've thought about this a lot over the years but for some reason it's on my mind a lot now, but I've never been successful in finding anyone else with a similar experience  or explanation.

Thanks for reading, and appreciate any (positve) feedback.

What I saw was a non-blinding bright light when it was pitch black and it was floating above me in this like majestic way almost like slow dancing. It dimmed part of the time but was still visible this happened about 3am. It was literally about 8 feet away and the size of a tennis ball.

I was sitting in my backyard just enjoying the evening and out of nowhere a blue ball flew over my yard and was two feet from my face. It lingered there for a few second like it didn't expect to be seen, then it flew over my head into the sky faster than anything I have ever seen. It was a bright blue fireball. I am the most skeptical person when it comes to encounters but I cannot even begin to explain this.
