Pilot Captures Rare Celestial Phenomenon (4 pics)

Pilots have a great view of the world. While flying through Vivaro, Italy, during a thunderstorm a pilot recently snapped these photos of the red lights which is one of the rarest celestial phenomenons known to man. It looks great in pictures, we can only imagine how amazing it must have looked in person.

  1. Not sure of his altitude, but sure hope he didn't hit the bushes at the bottom of the photo frames. Must be a crop duster.

  2. Good thing you gave it a name so we could know what it's called and maybe research and read up on it some more...oh, wait, you didn't. So now it just looks like bubblegum smeared on the windshield of his plane. Thanks.

  7. These are sprites. I first came across them during the '90's. There's a lot of info on them if you know where to look
