Sprite show over the Adriatic Sea seen from Italy

The Mediterranean will never disappoint you as far as European sprites are concerned. This time, on the night of 22-23 September 2014, the observers of the Italian Meteor and TLE Network (IMTN) recorded many sprites above the northern Adriatic Sea area, from at least three locations: Ferrara, Chianti and Medicina! Have a look at some of their impressive recordings on the IMTN discussion forum.

Thanks to Renzo Cabassi (CIPH-SOSO) for the news.

PS The internet tells me that on the same night another motivated observer watched the same spectacle, also from Italy, and he used his camera very well! It's not the first time he saw sprites.
