The sprites are an unexplained events in the higher atmosphere. A similar events named Blue Jets, and Elves are also known. Sprites usually appears above thunderstorms, both above the sea or ground. The duration of the sprites are very short, usually 1 millisecond (rare an 1/10 sec) so it’s very hard to see with naked eye. Sprites usually captured by high speed vision cameras. The altitude of the sprites are 60-90 km, which is almost the border of the space. (very rare atmosphere)
What causes sprites?
Lightning. Sprites are the result of extremely powerful lightning discharges sometimes occurring within thunderstorms. They are almost always triggered by a powerful positive cloud-to-ground (CG) flash which lowers massive amounts of electrical charge to the Earth. This momentarily increases the electric field in the middle atmosphere beyond the point of “dielectric breakdown.” In other words, a giant spark occurs, usually starting around 45 miles above the ground. Electrical streamers then race both downwards and upwards from that point. Though sprites may look rather “solid” in many images, when viewed through telescopes, many sprites are actually composed of networks of thin channels of electrical streamers. Only a very small percentage (<10%) of positive CGs actually produce sprites, and then, only in certain storms.
I think it’s not correct. Just for a superficial examination sees the “jet” in the middle of the sprites. Like a laser or particle beam. See the picture. In our explanation, the thunderstorm (lighting) causes a scalar wave, by the long size discharge. The circumstances are not ideal for decceleration in ht lower atmosphere. The partially ionised higher atmosphere can interact with the scalar waves, causing a self-exciting effect, and ionisation, shown in the picture.
It will help to us, how to find the creation, and detection method of scalar waves.
