Details:


This sprite occurred over a rather ordinary complex of thunderstorms just east of McCook, Nebraska (as recorded from Cheyenne, WY). I was able to see the lightning flashes from these thunderstorms but not the actual sprite itself. However, in this image, no obvious lightning could be seen that induced this sprite. Twilight was still apparent more than 75 minutes after sunset over the east.

This type of sprite is often referred to as a carrot top sprite for obvious reasons.
