Photo of a red sprite!
I personally tried to catch sprites using my digital camera (Canon EOS 5D) last Monday night at Mont Aigoual. Using a 50 mm lens at f/1.8, ISO 1600 and exposures of 4 seconds, I got my first sprite colour photo! I knew immediately that something happened, because I saw the sprite with my own eyes, while the UFOCapture software made a detection sound. It still was a question whether the camera would be sensitive enough to record the very brief flashes.
The video images show a series of columns followed by a group of large carrots:
I actually saw these as narrow white columns with my eyes. I was able to record a few more sprites (by taking many shots), but did not see any with my eyes. One jellyfish sprite was just missed by my camera and my eyes although I did see the bright cloud flash.
