These spectacular pictures show the incredible moment a rare natural phenomenon happens in the night sky. Red sprite lightning lasts only a millisecond and takes place high above a tunderstorm cloud.
The breathtaking flashes of light are caused by huge electrical discharges of lightning in the sky. Marko Korosec, 32, was lucky enough to catch these sprites on camera after months of trying.
Mr Korosec, from Sezana in Slovenia, took the shots whilst he was following storms in Vivaro, Italy. SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.
