This photo was caught over Hawaii back in 2017, featured this year by National Science Foundation’s NOIR Lab. A telescope at the observatory caught this image over 13,000 feet. The telescope takes photos about every 30 seconds and right when it snapped a photo it caught this phenomenon. The phenomenon you see in the photo is red sprite lightning at the top and blue jet lightning at the bottom.
