Three js raycaster WITHOUT camera

I seem to find only examples to use the raycaster with the camera, but none that just have a raycaster from Point A to Point B.

I have a working raycaster, it retrieves my Helpers, Lines etc. but it seems it does not recognize my sphere.

My first thought was my points are off, so i decided to create a line from my pointA to my pointB with a direction like so:

var pointA = new Vector3( 50, 0, 0 ); var direction = new Vector3( 0, 1, 0 ); direction.normalize(); var distance = 100;  var pointB = new Vector3(); pointB.addVectors ( pointA, direction.multiplyScalar( distance ) );  var geometry = new Geometry(); geometry.vertices.push( pointA ); geometry.vertices.push( pointB ); var material = new LineBasicMaterial( { color : 0xff0000 } ); 

var line = new Line( geometry, material );

This will show a line from my point (50 0 0) to (50 100 0) right trough my sphere which is at point (50, 50, 0) so my pointA and direction values are correct.

Next i add a raycaster: To avoid conflicts with any side effects i recreated my points here:

var raycaster = new Raycaster(new Vector3( 50, 0, 0 ), new Vector3( 0, 1, 0 ).normalize());  var intersects = raycaster.intersectObject(target); console.log(intersects); 

Seems pretty straight forward to me, i also tried to use raycaster.intersectObjects(scene.children) but it gives Lines, helpers etc. but not my sphere.

What am i doing wrong? I am surely missing something here.
