Paper Abstract

The report analyzes the optical data received by the MSX satellite during Fluxus and North Star active rocket experiments, conducted in 1997 and 1999 on the injection of high-speed plasma jets into the ionosphere. It has been demonstrated that 1 to1.5 seconds after injection, the irradiation of the background medium increases. The brightness of the luminescence is associated with the bursts of the flow of precipitated electrons, stimulated by injection of a plasma jet.
