  • Rare video of sprite caught on video from right here in Southern Arizona

    To sum it up: WOW! A sprite is a type of lightning that stretches up into space, rather than down to the ground. The flashes can extend 50 miles above a thunderstorm. Normally, you would have to fly above a storm to see this rare phenomenon.
