The analysis of modern models of ball lightning displays, that they are unsatisfactory on a series of tests. The model of ball lightning is offered, which exterior electronic envelope is retained by interior volumetric positive charge. The compounded electron motion in an outer envelope creates the strong magnetic field driving a state of ionized hot air inside ball lightning. The conditions of origin surveyed, the estimates of parameters of ball lightnings of different power are made.

It is hypothesized that the appearance of tectonic plates can easily be explained by thermodynamic contraction and expansion caused by heating and cooling of the Earth’s mantle underneath the crust.
