Spectacular Sprite images from above Hungary by a color digital camera

An amateur astronomer has captured several sprites above a thunderstorm over Hungary on the night of 23. June, 2011. The beauty of these images hides in that there was also a closer active storm cell in the field of view, so some of the photos show nice lightning-illuminated clouds together with the bright red sprites. The images are courtesy of the photographer, Zoltán Goda. Enjoy!

Sorry for the very late reply: exposure length was between 3 and 5 seconds. See the other parameters on the web page of the photos

Dear Collegue,

We, the Science Busters, a group of two scientists from the University of Vienna and Vienna University of Technology and a comedian have a small TV-show about science in Austrians Broadcast Company.

So we would like to ask, if we can use the last photo shown on the site


for our TV-show to explain sprites.

Do you also have a higher resolution of this photo?

Best regards from Vienna,
Heinz Oberhummer

Dear Heinz, I apologise for our late response. Does the photo still interest you?
