Electron density bubbles generated in plasma of density ne∼1019/cm3ne∼1019/cm3 are shown to reshape copropagating probe pulses into optical “bullets.” The bullets, reconstructed by frequency‐domain interferometric techniques, are used to visualize bubble formation independently of relativistic electron generation.
