The sprites typically occur at about 70-80 km above the earth, and they don't have anything to do with water vapor.
But what this have anything to with "Sprites above a Hurricane"? Well, it's another supporting observation for the idea, that Material is continuously fusioned in the high atmosphere. This Fusion doesn't need even need very high temperatures, it rather need's a low pressure. Though actually the concepts like "Temperature" and "pressure" are not very describing in this context. The fusion needs certain kinetic energy of a particle, (temperature analogy) that the colliding particles are able to fusion. And then they need a certain time after this collision, that the nuclei of this particle can go through Internal Transition and become enought stable, to hold another collision before splitting to parts again. (low pressure analogy)
So according to my Ideas, the sprite above Hurricane is caused by the fact, that there lot of high energy (hot) particles colliding each other in the top of hurricane, but the pressure is too high, that they could be fusioned. Thus they just heat up to the levels where visible ligt is emitted. The Light is Red, because that's the lowest energy light which is visible; as the collision happens in atmosphere below turbopause,
No particular molecule spectre becomes visible.
If my Ideas turns out to be wrong, I am fine with that too. I wont beliece any ferrytales from Dark matter etc. though. Here's the whole story to those who are interested;

My opinion is the O ions and Protons and Electrons in the Solar Wind will unite to form H2O when conditions are correct for the molecular formation reaction to occur.

But this one blew itself out, and I think the sprites had something to do with it. Exactly what, I do not know.
