We report on the spatial movement of the electron during high-order harmonic generation (HHG). In an in-situ pump-probe measurement with micrometer-sized liquid water droplets, the influence of high-density targets onto HHG is studied. By increasing the density of the target towards mean inter-particle distances matching the excursion distance of the electron, a decrease in the signal of the emitted harmonic radiation is observed. This decrease can be attributed to an increase in the probability of a perturbation of the electron on its trajectory in the continuum, which is induced by neighbouring molecules. This approach allows to follow the electronic movement with Ångstrom spatial resolution, and to probe electronic trajectories during HHG.
