"Foo fighters" was the name given to small spheres of light that were seen by Allied air pilots during WWII. These fast-moving, glowing balls were often seen following aircraft & flying around them displaying speed & maneuverability beyond the capabilities of the Allied planes. Many Allied pilots believed them to be secret Nazi weapons, although they were never hostile. However, German & Japanese pilots encountered these same fiery orbs. What these foo fighters were has never been explained.
