These images i am bringing you Tonight are of a very illusive gigantic jet or otherwise known as Ionospheric lightning, This is short-lived electrical-breakdown phenomena that occur well above the altitudes of normal lightning and storm clouds.
Upper-atmospheric lightning is believed to be electrically induced forms of luminous plasma.
Gigantic jets have only been captured on camera a handful of times and this night i was lucky enough to see 6 jets, some of which you will see below!
This was a mind blowing experience to see with my eyes never mind researching the photos to find out just how rare they are!
I captured these jets near a small town in the Pilbara of Western Australia on the night of Tuesday the 28th of March
I hope you enjoy these photos

These Jets didn't exist till a few years ago. People saw them for eons, but evidently they are not real unless someone with credentials sees them and says what they are. Now since they are real we can discuss them without being ridiculed by science.
By the way, they are not rare, seeing nice ones like this is rare though. Getting good pictures of them is very rare.
Sentman and Wescott captured 19 black-and white
images of the flashes above thunderstorms in the
Midwest last year. Before that, scientists did not
have proof that the flashes existed.
