Abstract

The idea that ball lightning is a plasma manifestation has been put forth by many authors. One of the major drawbacks of this approach concerns with the stability of these structures. After showing the theoretical existence of pure rotating electromagnetic waves in equilibrium, we argue that these can reasonably provide a robust stabilizing scaffolding for the development of ball lightning phenomena.
