|Image randomly chosen from Astronomy Picture Of The Day
2001 August 2
This dramatic, garishly colored image was captured with a low-light level
camera on 2001 June 7.
It shows what appears to be a "burning tree" above the National
Cheng Kung University campus in Tainan City, Taiwan ...
but the burning tree is actually a
red sprite 300 kilometers away.
and still poorly understood optical flashes seen dancing
at altitudes of 30 to 90 kilometers
red sprites occur near the edge
of the atmosphere and have been glimpsed by astronauts
What ever their cause,
the red sprite flashes usually last only
tenths to hundredths of a second and characteristically take on shapes
which researchers describe as columns, fingers, trees, or carrots.
