Please click on various parts of the animation above, you can see various pictures and explanations,
and also can listen to the thunder or the sound converted from the radio waves emitted by lightning
discharges. The lightning may induce sprites, which shoot upwards.

If you click the stars, you will see 51 pieces of artworks exhibited in orbit. (Original and etched images are shown alternately.)

Around the center of the Earth's picture, there is very loud thunder, which may produce sprites.

The other parts of sounds, which are on the Earth's picture, are the sounds converted from radio waves
detected by a receiver onboard the earth orbiting Akebono satellite.
Such radio waves are emitted from lightning and travel for thousands or even tens of thousands of kilometers.
