The subject of sprites, elves, blue jets, and other upper atmospheric lightning has long been an interest of mine. There is so much we don't know about how the upper ionosphere interacts with the surface of the earth during thunderstorms. We may in fact find out that there is a connection between the upper atmospheric electric field and the earth, and the thunderstorm only acts as a catalyst for the breakdown to occur in the form of lightning.
Thanks for posting the links Dave.
