On September 20, 1963 the Injun III satellite, at an altitude of 2350 km, passed within close proximity of a balloon x-ray detector at 35 km altitude. During a transit of the L-shell of the balloon, a marked correlation in the increases of flux of the satellite precipitating electron E or 40 keV detector and the balloon x-ray E or 30 keV detector is found. These results place a lower limit of 430 km east-west separation of the mutually observed pulsation event. Author
