Details:
Here are three more sprites I found but these were captured by the CFHT cloudcam which was also facing East. The timestamps on these sprites do not match the ones from the Gemini cloudcam so there were at least six sprites generated by the massive thunderstorms near Hawaii on the night of Feb. 7, 2018. There is also some very interesting airglow activity that could be Mesospheric Gravity Waves caused by the convection within the thunderstorms.

Here are the links to the videos:
