If the capacitor plates of the high-frequency generator's oscilla­ tor circuit are pulled apart a small distance, and if the oscillator circuit is closed, then a high-frequency field forms between the plates.

In some instances, luminous clusters are not oriented in their motion. They move slowly between flares and are finally extin­ guished with a flash or they dissolve in space.
