Abstract Aims.We sought to determine the scale of scintillation in the interstellar plasma of PSR J0437−4715. Methods.We used the US VLB Array to obtain scintillation amplitude and phase data, from dynamic spectra at 327 MHz. Results. We observe two scales of scintillation of pulsar PSR J0437−4715, differing by more than an order of magnitude in scintillation bandwidth. The wider-bandwidth scale of scintillation that we observe indicates less scattering for this pulsar than for other nearby pulsars, other than PSR B0950+08. The narrower scale agrees approximately with that observed for other nearby pulsars. Key words. turbulence – pulsars: individual (PSR J0437−4715) 1.
