I couldn't possibly say.....however were you type "U2 One Glastonbury" into Youtube....quite possibly the very best thing I can ever ever remember seeing and then the lights went out ......metaphorically......my wife woke me from a ditch in the pouring rain in the early hours.....disgraceful behaviour for an ageing hippy but apparently I was still smiling......marvellous.....anyway....back to varnishing my latest fishing thing here....oh....and September for Wells then.. ..I will bring the Ouija Board !

That is more or less what he thought, SK, but he was still pretty shaken up

He said it was easily the size of a football...
I wonder... :shocked:
I'd love to see something like that, it would be fascinating. Having heard about ball lightning, marsh gas or whatever it may be, to witness one first hand would be a thrill. Its odd that our first reaction is one of fear, a throw back from our ancient selves running rather than reasoning I suppose but when you've got over the initial shock you would have to think that you are absolutely privileged to have witnessed such a rare event.
