A week at Pic du Midi de Bigorre
Three members of our team are staying this week at the observatory of Pic du Midi de Bigorre (southern France, Pyrenees) where one of the two cameras is installed. So far no thunderstorms have occured in the near area and there was no chance to catch sprites. We are working on educational material on sprites, waiting for thunderstorms (they are finally possible this weekend!) and admiring the beautiful landscape of the mountains.
Update: too bad the stay was planned in advance, as there eventually were almost no thunderstorms at all this week, except far over northern Italy again. Puy de Dôme has unfortunately been out of business due to local network/computer problems.
