The fine spatial evolutions and the associated electric field changes of an M-component occurred in a rocket-triggered lightning discharge were analyzed. The lightning discharge was observed with a broadband VHF lightning interferometer, a slow antenna system located and a camera system. With an appropriate approach of combination of the camera images and the VHF interferometer data, spatial evolutions of various processes in the discharge, especially the M-component, were examined.
