RED SPRITE INFORMATION:
Visual reports of Transient Luminous Events (TLE'S) occurring high above thunderstorms date back to the late 1800’s. It wasn’t until 1989 that the first ones were accidentally captured on video. Years after discovery, they were named "sprites" for their spirit like nature. These lightning-like discharges lack the high temperature channels of typical lightning and are considered a cold plasma phenomena. Dark moonless nights above powerful thunderstorms are the best conditions to capture red sprites.

ABOUT THIS EVENT:
All of these sprites were captured above a large storm complex over North Texas and Oklahoma on May 7th, 2019. A total of 25 sprites caught on camera. This video highlights the more vibrant ones. Special thanks to Paul Smith and Scott Curren.

MUSIC: Composed by Hank Schyma
Outro music "La male'diction de la danse du poulet" by Pecos Hank
