Low-light sprite cameras to be installed this week
One of the black-and-white images of a sprite captured by the low-light camera on Pic du Midi in August 2003. The large sprites in this image are termed "carrot" sprites, the smaller ones "columniform" sprites.
Olivier Chanrion and the Danes will take the instruments to France by car, starting Thursday morning, so during the weekend they plan to have the OMP-system running and after that the Puy de Dôme-system. During the first week, the software will continue to be modified and streamlined, making the commanding of the systems as easy as possible. Then, it is a matter of having favourable conditions to observe sprites!
