ARE you also colour blind?.
It is an extremely unlikely long shot but the reason I ask is that some people have phase shifted sight and can see slightly different in the
spectrum than other people a side affect of some form's of so called colour blindness and also some colour blind people sea better in the dark.
That said the affect is extremely subtle and unless you are seeing with 'other' than your physical eye's (being a believer in the human soul and
spirit I believe this to be a possibility and have seen thing's outside the rational view myself but not emanations from power cables), is this a
constant affect or only in certain weather condition's and light level's, some cables have a higher resistance and can have a higher temperature which
you may see if your eye's are particularly sharp as a form of heat shimmer though the temperature variance to ambient level's is usually very low,
still they DO carry a lot of potential difference in alternating (push pull or wave form) cycles of energy.
The reason AC is used in power lines is because of something called Inductive Capacitance which impedes the flow of direct current electricity over
distance, since AC is not flowing but rippling if you like - like ripples on a pond's surface - it encounters much less impedance though it does still
affect AC over distance it does so far less greatly than DC.
I personally doubt you are seeing anything other than a potential heat shimmer from warm cables and even that is unlikely but you know what you see
and that other's do not see it so expect your experience to be subjective and perhaps unique to yourself though others may have a different take and
it is perhaps possible that someone else whom has experiences a similar phenomena may speak up on the issue.
It is unusual but not unheard of to see affects during rain especially in high voltage cables as well as even spark's on occasion were the rain
itself may have a differential charge to the cable sufficient for the inductive affect of the cables ambient magnetic field to not equalize the
potential before the rain enter's the arc distance necessary for a spark to be emitted.
