Transformer Explodes in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin on 5/12/11
Fort Worth Explosions , caused by Orbs? Re posted.

Well here is the the whole thing re posted, watch the video, you can clearly see three or four orbs appear and disappear at the beginning of the clip, birds can be heard singing in the background which I thought was rather odd considering it is dark and no explosion noise is audible or noise of thunder.
