  • Pete Beatminister

    A Kugelblitz is not a black hole. Its the german term for ball lightning, a (somewhat debated) phenomena, occuring near thunderstorms, when the there is a high electric charge in the air. Eyewitnesses decribe it as something similar to a plasma sphere of several feet diameter, that exists for several seconds and wanders around near the ground. See Wikipedia
    So, calling a black hole a Kugelblitz is pretty stupid and misleading. You could might as well call it a cheeseburger.
