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!
