In multimegavolt electrostatic generators, the accidental sparkover discharges change in character as the voltage and stored energy increase. The usual forked, unidirectional discharges are replaced by complex discharges containing numerous closed loops. It is suggested that this is an example of the formation of closed-current loops that generate magnetic fields in astrophysics
