A few observations:

1. In the Summer months, atmospheric humidity is generally high enough to prevent static buildup. In the Winter months the humidity is much lower, and that's when we get the long static arcs when we touch metal surfaces.

2. Computer room grade air conditioning is generally equipped with humidity control to maintain an optimum level at around 50%.

3. So, if this image was captured recently, in the Northern Hemisphere, then I have my doubts about static discharge causing these flashes.

I don't think so.

We had dvr cams with ir arrays in them.

Doesn't mean it still couldn't be a bug with some sort of luminescence.

Or you have ghosts in your room. lol

Have you checked to see if anyone walked in there at that time? Looks like it began at the door and moved. I've worked in plenty of server rooms and have observed similar when someone came in from a door. Possibly carpet outside and from the pics there appears to be no static discharge mats. I'd recommend getting those as a side note....

Check access records, if you have a swipe or whatever.

Ouch.. im sorry to hear that, it can be devastating i know, it is a reason why we have to be grounded when we work with electronics (that is expensive).

I also remember a story/myth where people say to unplug all your electrical equipment during a thunderstorm to keep it safe, but hearing your story you better put that disconnected cable a couple of feet from the socket if you want it to help or with a bit of humidity in the air it will still make that jump


Ikr?

The one thing I try to do now in winter with the heat on is to not touch electronics unless i can't find the remote.

Thanks for sharing your story Osirisvet, i wonder if you also had cold chills when you passed that location but i doubt it as you describe it as a ordinary site. A crash like that where people instantly perish, makes me wonder if one or 2 of them decide to hang around or still not realize they have had a fatal crash and are sitting in that car just waiting, brrrrr.
To me that is indeed a very obvious reaction to something he must have seen or smelled that he really didn't like, makes you wonder what, it must have been bad seeing it freaked him out so much.

Hope you gave him a extra treat that evening to calm his nerves, it must indeed have been scary for a old solid rock like him.

Old Cooper got lots of love and treats anyway lol.
For me there was no unusual feelings.or reactions to that spot, if I hadn't heard about what had just occurred there I would have had no idea anything had happened.
I'd heard that some animals react to metaphysical stimulus, whatever it was it was enough to send poor Cooper into hysterics, the one and only time that I saw him like that.
What would a dog see that would give them the horrors?

It looks like a grounding problem with the equipment. As a static charge builds up it is not going to ground and is discharging to something with a better ground.

Will see if i can setup a additional camera with the same settings as this one so we can have 2 shots of the same event.

The captures are made in the middle of the night, the pic i uploaded are from late in the evening and one from early in the morning. It is highly unlikely someone is walking inside here during those hours as there is also a active alarm during the
hole night protecting the building.

We did capture people on the cam but the first thing they do is turn on the lights.

Hehe i hate those shocks, during certain period's of the year you cannot touch anything here. But you can use it to annoy colleague's by touching them before you hit the metal part, we make a sport out of it.
If you have a carpet it will be even 10 times worse, guess what we have at office.

That is a good question, i wonder about that myself. For dogs their eye sight is not even that great compared to ours, maybe it will also give of a sent/odor that makes them frenzy, but that would not get into the car so fast i guess so must have purely been sight that freaked him out.

True, but i didn't know it would last more then a second so it can get captured on a timer set camera, i thought it was split-second discharge.

Added a second webcam, the program did not allow me to add a second cam so i had to setup a hole extra machine to run the capture software so it took a bit longer then expected. After the weekend i will show what i got.

Captured on CAM2 at 18-08-2018 11:09:03


Captured on CAM2 at 19-08-2018 0:36:37


Captured on CAM2 at 19-8-2018 20:35:19


Odd thing to notice is they are all from the second cam i set up.
The first one has a very cool beam low in the image

Control Image for CAM2 (Logitech Quickcam Pro 9000)

edit on 20-8-2018 by Dimens because: (no reason given)

From what I can tell, it looks like light shining in through the door.
You can see the "beam" in the first pic is from the bottom and the spec of light is probably from a bad seal around the frame.

It's the same beam from the first camera pictures.
Hard to tell though.

I agree its light coming in through the bottom of the door. The other spot is at the top corner since we cant tell whats in the room behind but my guess is maybe a window allowing headlights to shine into the room. Either way doesnt look like static. And what is going on cant be figured out until someone checks door seals and looks into light sources.

Yea i think you are right, it lines up perfectly with the door.

I agree it can be light during the day time, but at night it is dark everywhere here so there should not be any light source, also on every capture the light spots are at a random location.

Oddly enough it didn't capture a thing, but hasn't since i added the second, i may have chanced a setting when trying to add the second came, i try and revert those chances so it will act the same as cam2.
