Observations of electron fluxes made by the PET and LICA instruments aboard SAMPEX have been used with NO measurements made by HALOE aboard UARS to provide evidence of mesospheric and lower thermospheric NO formation due to precipitating electrons. Results indicate significant NO increases from 70 to 120 km which are associated with the occurrence of enhanced electron populations in the outer trapping regions of the magnetosphere, 2.5 ≤ L ≤ 7, which precipitate into the atmosphere.
