I just read an article you featured.

The writer (Stu Farnsworth) talked about finding baseball and basketball sized floats (balls?).

What is the definition of a float and what is usually the origin?

Hi Louis,

That's not our "area of expertise" so I asked Stu Farnsworth himself to answer this question.

His response is below in the comments section.

Of course we do welcome comments from anyone else who wants to add something about glass floats!
