Is this something GUT-CP and ‘hydrino’ physics could explain? Mills’ model for the pseudo-electron explains ‘sprites’ in the upper atmosphere (and paves the way for anti-gravity propulsion)…
We know a growing number of researchers and physicists are quietly using the GUT-CP model of physics…

Russia’s research into this kind of phenomena and related, dates back to the early stages of the Cold War, to modern times…
Russia is about make ‘Lower Energy Nuclear Transmutation’ an officially state recognised science… LENR, ball lightening etc.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) – An ultraviolet telescope installed on the Russian satellite Lomonosov has registered light “explosions” in the planet’s atmosphere, whose physical nature has not been explained so far, the director of the Research Institute of Nuclear Physics at the Russian State University said in an interview with Sputnik.
“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 kilometres, we have registered several times a very powerful ‘explosion’ of light. But everything was clear underneath it, no storms, no clouds,” Mikhail Panasyuk said.
Russian astronomic satellite Mikhailo Lomonosov of Moscow State University was launched to the Earth’s orbit in 2016.
It was designed to observe transient phenomena in the upper atmosphere of the Earth as well as studying the radiation characteristics of the planet’s magnetosphere and for basic cosmological research. Its weight is 625 kilograms.
The satellite is equipped with a space telescope to measure the energy spectrum and chemical composition of high-energy cosmic rays from near-Earth orbit. Moreover, there are instrumental systems installed on board for studying cosmic gamma-ray bursts and the Earth’s near-magnetosphere.
Russian satellite spots baffling bursts of light above EARTH that science can’t explain
Russian scientists say one of their satellites spotted high-power “light explosions” while flying dozens of kilometers above the Earth. They say the mysterious phenomenon can’t be explained by anything known to modern physics.
Unusual space phenomena have been detected in the Earth’s atmosphere before, but a team operating the Lomonosov satellite – named after the renowned Russian scientist – say these explosions are something entirely new.
We do not yet know their physical nature,” Mikhail Panasyuk, head of Moscow State University’s Research Institute of Nuclear Physics, told the media.
Luminous flashes like these are normally explained by weather events, but the skies underneath the satellite were clear, with no storms, lightning, or clouds in sight. “What caused the explosions is an open question,” Panasyuk said.
The Earth’s atmosphere can be lit up by UV flashes and bursts of electricity, but these are usually associated with storm clouds.
Lomonosov’s UV scope is designed to study powerful cosmic rays, including various light phenomena, gamma rays, and magnetospheric particles in the upper Earth’s atmosphere.
However, this proved to be a challenging task as the atmosphere is heavily “infested” with miscellaneous flashes, such as city lights or airport beacons, according to Panasyuk.
What HAS Russia spotted in Earth’s upper atmosphere? Scientists say satellite detected unexplained ‘explosions of light’ in cloud-free skies
Scientists with Lomonosov satellite say it spotted several ‘explosions’ of light
These were spotted dozens of miles above the surface, with no clouds below
Researchers say they may have come across previously unknown phenomenon
A Russian satellite designed to monitor the atmosphere for high-energy cosmic rays has detected mysterious ‘explosions’ of light miles above Earth’s surface, Russian scientists say.
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, according to Sputnik.
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,’ Mikhail Panasyuk, Director of the Research Institute of Nuclear Physics at Moscow State University, told Sputnik.
‘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,’ the director said. ‘But everything was clear underneath it, no storms, no clouds.’
In recent years, unusual electrical discharges have been captured on film by satellites and even astronauts aboard the International Space Station.
There are several types of luminous flashes, most notably red sprites and blue jets.
These bursts of electricity, however, are always associated with storm clouds, making the latest discovery all the more baffling.
The Lomonosov Project is working to get to the bottom of short-lived phenomena such as that recently detected in the upper atmosphere to understand processes beyond cosmic rays and gamma bursts.
While they may occur high above Earth, the effects of space weather can trickle down and interfere with activity down at the surface.
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.
The late experimental physicist John Winckler accidentally discovered sprites, while helping to test a new low-light video camera in 1989.
They show up red at higher altitudes and fade to blue at lower heights.
‘We must take into account that the Earth’s radiation belts – the charged particles trapped by the magnetic field, can disappear, precipitate from the magnetic trap into the Earth’s atmosphere, producing in it extensive regions of ionization,’ the project’s website states.
‘The energy of the radiation belt particles is sufficiently high, for instance, there are relativistic electrons with energy of several MeV among them, which can penetrate deep in the atmosphere and by rate of ionization can easily compete against Auger showers.
‘Besides space factors physical processes near the Earth’s surface also have an effect on the atmosphere.’
