Spring sprites from Italy

Message from Roberto Labanti, Italy: On March 24, at 01:58:45 UT CIPH SOSO system located in San Lazzaro di Savena, Italy, caught his first sprite event of this year, near the limit of its field of view. The sprite could be linked to a thunderstorm in the South/South-East direction, unfortunately off-view.

Update (24 April 2008):
Around midnight April 18-19, the CIPH SOSO system caught five sprite events in a period of ten minutes, when a thunderstorm was active in the East.
