High energy electron measurements from RAPID, further highlighting the fortuitous sampling of the electron beam by CLUSTER 3. The figure shows the four spacecraft positions and the electron distributions at each spacecraft from two different viewing directions and show clearly the high energy beam observed at the lower spacecraft as it 'dips' into a region of highly dynamic particles and current.
