Sprite!!


UPDATE:  According to Nemetode.org I am the first in the Republic of Ireland but first in Ireland goes to Robert Cobain who captured one in 2005 January from Bangor, Co. Down, Northern Ireland.

Could I possibly be the first person to capture a Sprite from Ireland???

What is a Sprite? (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lightning#Sprites)

Sprites are large-scale electrical discharges that occur high above a thunderstorm cloud, or cumulonimbus, giving rise to a quite varied range of visual shapes. They are triggered by the discharges of positive lightning between the thundercloud and the ground. The phenomena were named after the mischievous sprite (air spirit) Puck in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream. They normally are coloured reddish-orange or greenish-blue, with hanging tendrils below and arcing branches above their location, and can be preceded by a reddish halo. They often occur in clusters, lying 50 kilometres (31 mi) to 90 kilometres (56 mi) above the Earth's surface. Sprites were first photographed on July 6, 1989 by scientists from the University of Minnesota and have since been witnessed tens of thousands of times. Sprites have been mentioned as a possible cause in otherwise unexplained accidents involving high altitude vehicular operations above thunderstorms.
