Short summary
In this paper we report several ionospheric plasma irregularities detected by an instrument (Langmuir probe) installed as a rocket payload that flew over the equatorial region of Brazil. The results of our measurements were compared with measurements made on a different date and by another instrument (radar) located under the magnetic equator in Peru. Our comparison suggests that the rocket intercepted the same type of irregularity previously detected in Peru.
