First observation of Sprites over Hungary

I am happy to announce that on the night 10-11 August we managed to film 10 sprites over our own country.

This is the very first time that sprites were observed over Hungary!

A larger thunderstorm cell was moving from South to North during the night, which is not a usual scenario since the storms usually move towards East. We were given a window between the clouds for some hours which was just good enough to make the observations. Later the clouds came above us, but still we were able to catch bright events through the lite cloud cover. Below you can see perhaps the most beautiful piece.
