Abstract It is proposed that the coincidence of higher brightness and upward electric current observed by Janvier et al. during a flare indicates electron acceleration by field-parallel potential drops sustained by extremely strong field-aligned currents of order 10{sup 4} A m{sup −2}. A few consequences are discussed here.
