    A storm chaser was able to snap rare photos of sprites in the sky that resemble a giant jellyfish. According to a space weather forecasting site, the sprites probably became more prominent due to the current solar minimum conditions.
    A sprite is usually red-colored lightning or electrical discharge that occurs over thunderstorm clouds. Sprites often appear in clusters at altitudes of 50 to 90 kilometers.
    Like lightning, sprites only appear in the sky for only a fraction of a second. Due to their speed and location where they form, sprites are almost impossible to view.
