my fire alarm has a tiny little LED in it which projects a big long streak of light down one of the walls when its very dark and i can only see it
when my eyes are used to the dark, maybe it was a very dim light source? maybe even it WAS ambient light coming though the curtains or reflecting off
the top of the window in the tiny little gap aboce the curtains -maybe enough moonlight refracted into a noticable pool?
I work setting up lights for music shows and i can tell you just how hard it can be to work out where a pool of light is coming from, sometimes in the
dark a single LED or window light or reflected light from a seemingly screened area will bounce off something a ruin a back drop or mess with a
camera. Light is a very tricky little devil sometimes.
I Think thats the bst i can do, i wouldn't worry but if it happens again a simple test is to wave your hand in front of it till you find your shadow
in it or you block it out completely, then check and see whats in line with your hand, waving it about in the right area and checking to see your
shadow in it can help. If you can't find your shadow and you've had your hand all over it then it's either coming from behind the wall / screen or
aliens are sending you the next bible.
oh and when a TV is turned off it shines a very dim light for ages afterwards, well a cathodray tube does anyway, plasma do if they've been on for
ages and LCD normally go right out. This could well be what you've seen.
Hope this helps you and your daughter sleep well tonight
