A Russian satellite designed to monitor the atmosphere for high-energy cosmic rays has detected mysterious ‘explosions’ of light miles above Earth’s surface. The Russian scientists say what they’ve found may be something entirely new!
While numerous examples of unusual space weather phenomena have been spotted in the upper atmosphere before, the team operating the Lomonosov satellite say what they’ve found may be something entirely new.
Despite the occurrence of several powerful bursts, Russian scientists say there were no signs of storms in the area.
The satellite, named after scientist Mikhail Lomonosov, launched in 2016 and is integrated with the Kanopus-B spacecraft.
Its goal is to study high-energy cosmic rays, including gamma rays, magnetospheric particles, and transient light phenomena in the upper atmosphere.
And, the scientists now say it’s spotted something odd.
‘With the help of the telescope, we have obtained even more important results than we expected. It looks like we have encountered new physical phenomena. We do not yet know their physical nature. For example, during Lomonosov’s flight at an altitude of several dozen kilometers, we have registered several times a very powerful “explosion” of light. But everything was clear underneath it, no storms, no clouds.’ said Mikhail Panasyuk, Director of the Research Institute of Nuclear Physics at Moscow State University.
What are the different types of space lightning?
While numerous types of space and weather phenomena have been spotted in the upper atmosphere before, the team operating the Lomonosov satellite say what they’ve found may be something entirely new.
The team reported ‘explosions’ of light, though no clouds were seen in the skies below.
In the past, similar luminous events have been linked to ‘space lightning’ – but, these events are always associated with storm clouds.
Blue jets are enormous bursts of electrical discharge spiking upward from storm clouds in the upper atmosphere. They emerge from the electrically-charged cores of thunderstorms and rise up to 30 miles upwards in the shape of a cone.
Red sprites are electrical bursts of light that occur above highly active thunderstorms. They only last a few milliseconds and are relatively dim compared with other lightning. They show up red at higher altitudes and fade to blue at lower heights.
Here another list of transient luminous events captured around the world.
Another atmospheric anomaly? Another physical phenomenon? What were these mysterious explosions of light high in the atmosphere… The weather war is going on…

Huge flashes of light ? .Are these flashes the signature of the HAARP arrays that are located at many sites on the planet ? There are 3 HAARP sites in my country Australia,they all have a bullshit cover story to hide the truth from the gullible public.The site in Western Aust is officialy called Jindallee over the horizon radar network.What total hullshit, this country has been suffering shocking drought and climate manipulation for decades and it get worse and worse.These aimed Haarp energy transmissions are aimed into the atmosphere and bounce off it before returning the ground.lt seems to me that the point of the bounce is the point of the flash that’s being reported.
As we approach the Maunder Minimum we have reports from NASA that the upper atmosphere is shrinking/ not extending as high above the planet. With this occurring it may be possible that red and blue sprites become more common due to the shorter distance to the upper radiation belts. Sort of like a spark plug with a narrower gap. Just my thoughts.
they call it sprites, yes.
the problem with these images is that the footage was not recorded in the upper atmosphere. i dont exactly believe in flat earth, but i see nasa’s lies and fake records.the curvature on this video came very early, other times came later.
on several real amateur footage of earth always differently. and im sure its not because they are ‘so much higher’. i see the planes usually also not that high, but when i was younger i was unexperienced to calculate out with my eyes.
this air- space thing and the topic around it is fishy.
