A good start of 2009 sprite observations in Central EU from Sopron
This system has been producing sprites all night. UFO capture was triggered 111 times by sprites during the observations from ~ 21:02 UTC until down which means even more individual events (the number of individual sprite events has not been counted yet). Below are some examples:
A sprite with the moon.
A "good morning" sprite
The hunt continues this night with a smaller thunderstorm above Ukarine and Romania.
Last year's results along with these will be shown on the IAGA General Assembly in Sopron this August ( www.iaga2009sopron.hu ), where we will have a rich TLE session as well. I hope to welcome you there. Cheers, Jozsef
