The observation of infrared bursts from the globular cluster Liller I has been reported by Kulkarniet al. (1979) and confirmed by Joneset al. (1980). The infrared bursts which resemble Type I X-ray bursts in their characteristics are plausibly attributed to a cyclotron maser instability operating at few tens of neutron star radii above the poles of a magnetized neutron star in a binary system. It is suggested that similar infrared bursts should in general be observable from Type I X-ray burst sources.
