Swedish microsatellite Astrid-2 carried out,electric and magnetic field measurements at 1000 km altitude during its operation in January-July, 1999. At a number of occasions sharp gradients in the magnetic field were observed by the satellite. If interpreted as spatial gradients they imply current densities of hundreds muA/m(2). Occurrence of such 11 current singularities is studied. The nature of the events is discussed.
