Thunderstorms and the lightning that they produce are inherently interesting phenomena that have intrigued scientists and mankind in general for many years. The study of thunderstorms has been done during the past century and many efforts have been made towards understanding lightning, thunderstorms and their consequences. Recent observations and optical phenomena have an active lightning discharge along with the availability of modern technology both for data collection and data analysis have renewed interest in the field of thunderstorms and their consequences in the biosphere. In this project we review the electicifition process of a thunderstorm lightening and upward lightning discharges that can cause sprites elves gets etc, which are together called transient luminous events. The morphological features and effects of sprites in the mesosphere are explained
