Rare Blue — Jet Lightning

Rare Local Blue Jet Lightning - A blue, cone-shaped burst that occurs above the center of a storm cloud and moves upward (toward the stratosphere) at a high rate of speed.

I contacted Lanihuli Observatory in Kaneohe, Oahu and they confirmed that yes, this a form of *Rare Local Blue Jet Lightning. Nerd Speak: Upper-atmospheric lightning or ionospheric lightning are terms sometimes used by researchers. C-sprites exhibiting tendrils and types of TLEs include sprite halos, blue jets, gigantic jets, blue starters, and ELVESs.
