Recently two new types of lightning
have been verified: red sprites and blue jets. These atmospheric discharges
occur very high in the Earth's atmosphere - much higher than the familiar
form of lightning. Red sprites appear red in color and go from the tops
of clouds to as high as the ionosphere - an ionized layer 90 kilometers
above the Earth's surface. They last only a small fraction of a second.
The existence of red sprites has been suggested previously, but only in
1994 were aircraft flown above massive thunderstorms with the high speed
video equipment necessary to verify these spectacular events. Scientists
are unsure of the cause and nature of red sprites.
