McLEISH PETER, The Historic Search for the Red Sprites: Art Meets Science in Lightning's Angels, Leonardo, Vol. 38, No. 2, 2005, pp. 109-113

Sprites are fleeting, luminous shapes that shoot into the upper atmosphere during large thunderstorms as lightning simultaneously reaches down to Earth. For at least a century, scientists have attempted to confirm and explain the existence of sprites with visual images and data. The author's series Lightning's Angels supplements the documentation of sprites by exploring the properties of this natural phenomenon through digitally enhanced oil portraits set to music and displayed in a large-scale multimedia format, such as at a planetarium.
