Although i aprove, it's still funny to think a scientist was sitting there and said:" I call those Elves, sprites and halos"

#1 funny as it is, most these scientist were those geeks in hight school who had to much cartoons in their heads. that's why there are some important servers and routers and stuff out there on the internet called cartoon names like: tom, jerry, granny, thunderbird, thomas...

#6 I advise you to sober up the next time you're posting a message here. I found her voice quite annoying.

#5 they are mostly too faint to be seen by a naked eye, especially if you don't look for them on purpose. You can see in the video that the images were strongly amplified (lots of grainy noise). Also, these are all phenomena that occur in the upper layers of the atmosphere, above the clouds. How often do you have clear sky and just the right storm clouds on the horizon, in the night and good visibility?
