Transient Luminous Events in the Mesosphere - Selected Specimens

Near-Infrared Movies with VLF-ELF Radio Emissions

Here are some sample movies of sprites, elves and other transient luminous event captures of the past weeks. I have recorded over three hundred specimens since March 30, 2012. Note that the movie screen size can be expanded by pressing the icon in the lower right corner of the embedded movie player. The ESC key returns the player to small size. All movies have sound.
