Auroral evidence for multiple reconnection in the magnetospheric tail plasma sheet

Abstract
We present auroral evidence for multiple and, most probably, small scale reconnection in the near Earth magnetospheric plasma sheet current layer during auroral activity. Hall currents as the source of upward and downward field-aligned currents require generation of the corresponding electron fluxes. The auroral spatial ordering in a multiple sequence of these fluxes requires the assumption of the existence of several -- and possibly -- even many tailward reconnection sites.
