Details:
This jellyfish sprite was preceded by what could be a cosmic ray hit to the camera sensor or maybe something else.

There was no flash before or after the event, so not an airplane or a star. It was 1:00 am so not a satellite or rocket body.

This camera was supplied to me by the Arecibo Observatory for an upcoming meteor campaign in November. The camera is a Watec 902H Ultimate and it is enclosed in a watec weather proof housing with built in heater to prevent fogging of the lens.

That looks like a blue starter. I saw those dots while videoing thunderstorms from a flight over Tennessee last Christmas (23/12/2015).

I saw that there is another very small white dot which appears at the left of the starter (about 3 starter dot size) on the same frame.
