Red sprites are optical phenomena which occur above active thunderstorms. It seems that they are correlated with positive cloud-to-ground (CG) lightning discharge (only 10 % of all lightnings are positive CG, the majority are negative ones). Red sprites appear very high above thunderstorms in altitudes from about 30 to 90 km. The brightest part of a red sprite is typically located between 50 and 75 km above the ground and its duration is only a few milliseconds. The red color is mainly caused by the excitation of molecular nitrogen. There are several theories explaining the red sprites however the phenomenon is not fully understood yet.

Extremely frustrated with my own lack of discipline and focus and it’s making me anxious
Flaminio Bertoni, Citroen DS, La déesse, 1955-75.
“She flirted because it was fun to flirt and wore a one-piece bathing suit because she had a good figure; she covered her face with powder and paint because she didn’t need it and she refused to be bored chiefly because she wasn’t boring. She was conscious that the things she did were the things she had always wanted to do.
