We caught 19 Sprites, 1 Halo, and 1 Sprite + Halo during a Cyprus low cyclone. The synoptic map in the area is dominated by upper trough from East Europe (500hp) and a low pressure cyclone in the surface (850hp). CAPE values were 300-400 J/Kg and Vertical wind was 28-30 hp/hour.
ILAN Science Team is an Israeli TLEs hunting project.
The sprite campaign began in 2005. Till now, we caught more then 100 TLEs (Sprites, Elves). Our research is focusing on Modeling, measuring and quantifying electromagnetic radiation produced by lightning associated with Transient Luminous Events (TLE's).
We have three stations:
* Tel Aviv Univeristy, Tel Aviv, Israel. * The Hebrew Univeristy, Jerusalem, Isreal. * Wise Observatory, Mitzpe Ramon, Israel.
