Looks like it could be a blue jet.

There is also an APOD featuring a similar phenomenon:

Congrats on capturing a rare event.
Just call me "geck" because "zilla" is like a last name.

thanks for your confirmation. I was very excited when someone told me that it is "red sprite". I have never heard of this
