During the night of the 13-14 of November we conducted night observation from Jerusalem.
we observed 20 meteors and 1 sprite. It seems that the parent cell cloud top wasn't significantly high based on satellite image, but it seems that there was enough stratified region to accumulate positive charge.

attached the sprite image and the satellite image.


  1. Elyakom,
    Nice work, well done! What is the range from Jerusalem? Can you identify the circle pattern and estimate dimensions?


  2. Wow... It is sooooo cool, man. I love it.

  3. distance estimated to the sprite is: 300-350km. It is hard to estimate the circle pattern dimensions because of lack of columns in the left side of the formation.
