Some BL reports say that it can form suddenly indoors, as if "winking on"
but not drifting in from outside. If so, then it's not exactly
electrostatic, since a house will shield the DC thunderstorm field. More
likely it requires a transient high e-field such as those in the miles of
space surrounding a lightning strike.
I see a couple of Youtube videos of apparent ball lightning.
