    I have just been washing some dishes, and one of the items was a glass Jar. After placing the jar on flat metalic surface i notice a clicking noise. I looked at the jar and at first thought the water was dripping from the inside of the jar. Looking closely there was no water in the Jar. I then realised there is a small bubble bouncing up and down. It has been doing this for 30 mins now..

    I have never seen anything like this before...

    Could someone explain it to me?

    After you have washed and rinsed the jar in hot water, and placed it on a wet flat surface with the opening down, the warm air inside the jar will cool and contract. If you have placed the jar on a surface covered with soapy water, the air drawn in will probably make soap bubbles. Could it be something like that?

    I'm not sure what cause the bubble itself, but the strange part for me is its movement... It was moving for 1 hour, and im 100% it was not some kind of drip, because there was very little water left in the Jar...
