An investigation of Transient Luminous Events was initiated after reading an article in which one of the leading researcher in that field made the remark that it was possible that UFO reports could be explained by these events. This paper is reporting the results of that investigation. In brief it has been concluded that although some pictures of Sprites in particular look like disc shaped saucers, it would be impossible for any witness to mistake one for a UFO. However, it was also concluded that it would be possible for a faux witness to fake a report with a picture of a Sprite. This paper was written to provide MUFON members with information needed to recognize a Sprite picture and to respond intelligently to any statement linking the two events.
