VLF perturbations on signals propagating along great‐circle‐paths (GCP) through electrically active midwest thunderstorms are associated with luminous high altitude glows (referred to as sprites) observed from aircraft or ground. The data constitutes the first evidence that the physical processes leading to sprites also alter the conductivity of the lower ionosphere.
