What a night. We gained a new record of observed TLEs in the vicinity of Israel. We caught 39 Sprites, 3 Elves and 2 Halos in one night. It was a cyprus low that went to the north-eastern part of the Mediterranean sea with clear visibility as can be seen in the "dust model" map.
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.
