The article says: "The best known temperature for a Kugelblitz to form is 141 billion billion billion Kelvin". I've done plenty of work on general relativity, this makes no sense to me: a sufficient quantity of electromagnetic radiation can form a black hole regardless of the temperature. Since no citation is provided, I'm going to delete this. If someone can explain it, we can restore it. John Baez (talk) 03:15, 3 February 2013 (UTC)

Check the history. It was obviously simple vandalism, or at best puerile nonsense. --Florian Blaschke (talk) 13:19, 8 January 2014 (UTC)
Actually, it was most probably a reference to the Planck temperature. --Florian Blaschke (talk) 14:42, 9 January 2014 (UTC)

This idea deals with both elementary particles and gravitation. Would not a theory of quantum gravity be needed for a structure of this type to form? (talk) 03:36, 2 July 2016 (UTC)
