Charged particles emission in a magnetic field on the basis of Boltzman equation with source term is studied. The work develops the results of Narasimha (1962), where the neutral gas expansion into a vacuum is studied. The different specific cases of emission are given for moving sources. The results may be of use when we study phenomena which happen in plasma close to the Earth and in space, as well as for studies of phenomena which take place due to moving satellites in the ionosphere and in interplanetary or interstellar plasma.
