New Sprites 12-13.11.2008

We caught 2 new sprites in the night of 12-13.11.2008. The storm can be seen in the attached synoptic map. The sprites were caught from Tel-Aviv University. during the observation we used two cameras but sadly, the sprites were caught on the edge of the right camera, thus, the left camera with the "red filter" missed them.
We caught an immpresive fireball. The meteor was caught on both cameras. thus analysed calculation can be made to understand what is the diffrence between the emission of the burning over all the visible wavelengthes to the emission from the meteor in the red filter camera(630-810 nm).
