I'll preface this by saying that this subject isn't one I typically spend a lot of time on, but I have always been very aware of it, and always been thoughtful of it, just never delved into it.

This might sound bizarre, but since I can remember, at night, when walking under street lamps, they go off after I've walked under them. I like to walk at night, and also used to ride my bicycle at night, and when I go under a street lamp, they often go out, and when I ride under them on a bicycle they often go out. Even driving under them in a car, they'll go out.

This is something that happens often enough that I have actively noticed it, and even jokingly mentioned it to others, such as my husband, and friends, and nobody has experienced this. However I mentioned it once to my mother, while walking with her at night, and she said "that is strange, that has happened to me too".

In fact, with my husband, I have even said, watch, this light will go out as soon as I pass under it, and often, it does, though I have never kept score on percentages, it's enough that I can say with some degree of confidence that it will go out or dim.

And yes, this probably sounds nutty to others, it sounds kind of silly to me too, but it has happened since I can remember, so I often just figured it had something to do with the lights or something. I have wondered of some of the lights are on a "light/darkness sensor" but it wouldn't make sense because in most cases I don't have a light on me at all, and if all cars caused street lamps to go out, it seems they would be constantly having issues. I've never tried to study it, or really mentioned it to anyone, except as a "watch this" or noting it to myself when it happens.

So I ask, does this happen to you? Or have you heard of this before?

** I have a few other "odd" things that seem to happen to me,but I'll leave those for other discussions.


Happens a lot depending on when you are out on the street. I've often experienced streetlights going out or coming on, but it's the time of day/night when I'm passing them - bit spooky at first but there ya go. Same as often traffic lights changing to red just as I want to cross the street. Thing is you forget the thousand times it doesn't happen, but remember the dozen or so when it does - just human nature.

This happens to me, and has for about the last 15 years. Ilive in the UK. It happens with street lights only, as far as i've noticed. For years when i lived at home, there was one street lightit happened with more than any other. Might be evening or the middle of the night, but it would go off when i was under it or within a few feet of under.

Never thought to try and film it, though i think it would be almost impossible to catch. Its never happened when i've been thinking about it. It does, however, happen too often for it to be coincidence



No, honestly, it is coincidence - why do you think otherwise? Has this happened in a film and you feel you relate to it? It just happens, trust me, you've just mentioned the time it happens which is when lights would be programmed to either turn on or off depending on the light, I know it can seem weird, happened to me a lot but it's nothing to be worried about or feel somehow empowered by.

I agree. I think most of the time it's just certain individuals perception and observation of their surroundings. It probably happens to everyone, but most people are probably too distracted by their iPhone or Droid, too intensely texting away with their thumbs to notice street lamps going out.

Yeah I think it happens to a lot of people. Once I was walking with my friend out in a city at night, and we noticed that almost every street lamp would go off when we walked near it. I was like, "Why do the street lamps turn off when we go near them?" He says, "I dunno. I heard it was like the vibrations in the ground disturbing the wires." I was actually in Electronics Technician school at that time, so I was like, "I don't know; that seems highly unlikely." He goes (jokingly), "Well then I dunno. Maybe we have a powerful aura or super powers." We both chuckled and continued on our way. I don't know what causes it, but it doesn't seem to mean anything. There is a scientific explanation for everything, maybe some scientists can perform a study and figure it out.

This happens to me quite frequently and always has since I was a little kid. But I know many other people that it also happens to. Many street lights do cycle on and off, it probably just has something to do with our energies triggering the off cycle sooner for some reason. It's pretty a common thing to happen to people, most probably don't even realize it.

guys, Im not sure if anyone has mentioned this.. but if it happens to so many of you so often (im talking the street light thing here
) get someone to film it, I would love to watch it

Yes I totally understand what you are talking about. I happens to me on a regular basis. I even noticed that I sometimes have the intuition to look at the light just before it is going to dim down. Freaky isn't it? Well, that's about it and I plan to one day understand the true meaning of it because everything is happening for a reason.

There are definately ufo connections as I was abducted as a child,There are also connections to waking at a number of time over and over---mine has been 444 my entire life,my life is crisscrossed with 44 or 444 connections.I have seen three autos with 444 as the last 3 digits of 6 within 1 mile of my home in the last week.

As to the videos as proof,it seems to me it would be easier for ANYONE who doesnt believe people like me to video their own evidence of these SUPPOSEDLY COMMON MECHANICAL ERRORS OR FAILURES.

Dont you think?

The night should be full of constantly twinkling lights ,unless of course you are wrong and there are no twinkling lights on your video.

How about this one,both you and I can both take our own videos over a one hour period and we will see who can record the most instances of interference?

Winnner takes all.

I own you because I just have to keep driving in a circle in my parking lot or jogging around my block---I say you dont even record one malfunction in that hour.

Accept this fact----once I say I am the reason the light goes off and then I either show you personally or video it ---YOU MY BACKWARDS THINKERS ARE CHARGED WITH OBTAINING PROOF THAT I AM WRONG.

I dont have to prove myself anymore right than my statement of existing fact.

You want to call my statement a guess and play games,it IS NOT A GUESS IT IS A STATEMENT OF FACT.

Therefore I say get your camera out or whatever you need to do to prove me wrong.Or kneel and confess you error of perception.

You in fact ARE THE ONE GUESSING THAT I AM WRONG.

Dont just guess,prove me wrong,and based on the types of proof requested,there are videos all over the net,SO THE BALL IS ALREADY IN YOUR COURT ,and you dont even know it .

You have been told and physical proof has been provided through the videos,so dontcha think we should all be following the premise that this is in fact FIRST AN ACCEPTED REALITY AND FACT ---then we should all have some milk and a cookie or two and wait for the detractors to provide proof of an alternative reality???

I do.

I have never been abducted by a UFO nor do I have any implants.

To the other posts, it's not really worth responding at this point because I have commented on all the items mentioned by the late posters here...in previous posts in this thread.

just some food for thought ,most dont remember an ABDUCTION,and there was an expectation I WOULD NOT REMEMBER,think a dentist freezing your tooth,the freezing simply doesnt work on everyone,but dentists have alternatives.

I remembered one implant coming out of my nose,and found the other through x-rays.

I think the abduction experience may somehow subconsciously teach us or our bodies to do something that some people who are never abducted can do naturally.

You may not have been abducted and may naturally do this while I having been abducted may have been indoctrinated into something you were born into.

Hmmm,

While you raise some valid and, not at all, uninteresting points i'm not worried or empowered by it. Are you under the assumption that I define my life by this? It's just something i'm aware of. Lets trudge through your hasty assumptions.....

Has this happened in a film and you relate to it?
No. I'm not really sure what your getting at with this. Anyone?

which is when lights would be programmed to either turn on or off
Serious? Like yourself, it was one of the first things i thought of. And ruled out. It happens quite often when the lights would never be programmed to turn off/on.

Assumptions, assumptions.

Well, thanks for replying, but you've not really contributed to the thread. I believe it happens too often to be coincidence. It happens to a lot of people. I think this thread was created to try and explore possible causes and get an idea of how many people have similar experience. Assuming that the phenomenon doesn't exist is irrelevant.

Hope this thread keeps going, it's been interesting reading so far.

Peace

This has been happening to me since I was a child, It only happens when I am directly under the light for some reason and it is always in the worst possible places, such as an eery pathway late at night. (not sure if hightened senses or emotion causes a stronger electrical output - maybe how dogs detect distress)

I also wipe those chips on bank cards and cause checkout chip and pin machines to malfunction.

It's my 'posative attitude' da dum

Well, I guess you mean I've not contributed because I said there is nothing phenomonal involved? I asked if you had seen something similar in a film as you seemed to imply some deeper meaning to this and was asking (quite innocently) if you had seen something similar happen in a film that perhaps alluded to it being a sign of some unnatural power. I don't think that was an unreasonable question.

But actually, I've just had a quick flick through your other posts so I can see why you would rather treat this as a mystical experience - that is of course your right, but sometimes things happen because..... they happen. Sorry if the thought of that disappoints you.

This has been happening to me since I hit puberty.I love going for walks at night and it happens often enough that i know it's more than coincidence . If you were to come for a walk with me you would notice it too. The only proof i can be bothered offering to doubters is that it wont happen unless I'm within a 20m radius of the light, or if I've been staring at it for a minute or so e.g. a single street lamp visible from my _ It is not something I can control but seems to happen most often when I'm thinking about things more deeply than usual.

It happens most readily with street lamps but can happen with any light. Sometime lights will remain on after I've turned them off. Computers will have strange problems no one else has seen or my settings will constantly change. I have to buy old or cheap cars cos if i drive one flashy one with to many electronics it will screw up. It happens often enough that those people close to me have noticed it as well without me pointing it out.

With the street lamps there are some it happens to more readily than others, but it can be any of them. In Australia the street lamps will automatically turn off if they are hit hard enough - probably a safety mechanism if a car crashes into it.The force require is the same or greater than a rowdy 16+ year old male can deliver with a roundabout fly-kick a while walking home drunk at 3am. I've never been sure if i interfere with this mechanism, the light sensitive on/off mechanism or if its something else.

I 'm not sure exactly why but I have no doubt certain peoples minds can interfere with electronics.

I have had this happen to me many times, a particular lamp every night for months.

I think someone is shining a blue laser on the sensor mounted on the top of the lamp. I'm willing to bet in every case there will be a taller building somewhere near with potential for this scenario. Could be done from some distance with a laser, and would work even at quite obtuse angles since most lamp sensor lenses are conical prism shaped and blue translucent glass. Enough light may possibly be refracted/reflected even at obtuse angles.

Light magical illusions, the solution is much less complicated than we imagine it might be.

The only problem with this premise, is that who, or what particular organisation could be bothered to do this to someone since most of us are just ordinary citizens. That's a more worrying circumstance than the phenomenon itself!

I am sorry I am new to this site and I know my reply has nothing to do with you guys conversation, but maybe someone can direct me on where to go after they hear what I have to say. So here we go. recently I was so sad and didn't really know who to turn to. For a long time I have felt like I don't belong on this earth. I don't fit in anywhere. a lot of the times I feel like I need to leave but I don't know where. Finally I typed I don't feel like I belong on this planet in google and I discovered so many people feel like this. I was so shocked and happy to know I wasn't alone. I feel others emotions I have feelings of things that will happen and it happens. I just really need someone to talk to. I have recently started therapy because I thought I was going crazy. but when I saw all those posts of people who felt the same way, I thought could this many people be crazy? but when I tried to reply to them it's like the site has been discontinued or something. All I know is that I have this strong desire to be around people who are like me, who think like me, who feel like me. I need to know who I am. Thank You.

I have noticed lights flickering when I pass in certain environments. I don't know if I've seen it with a streetlight yet, but I always felt very much like I was having my picture taken when it happened, and it has usually happened in environments where it would make sense for their to be some kind of intelligent relationship between security monitoring and lighting control, such as a Las Vegas casino.

I seem to recall hearing a conspiracy theory about how the next generation of streetlights would effectively be recording everything they shined on...


Edit to add: thinking a little more cyberpunk about it, supposing I for some reason wanted to be aware of comings and goings outside of my apartment... it probably would be possible to open up a streetlight at night and wire in a motion sensor in such a way as it would interfere with power to the light whenever triggered... the result being that if there's ever a SWAT team staging outside of my building I will see the streetlight flashing from my couch. That's probably overthinking it still though.

Years ago this happened to me quite a lot. I started to notice it happening right after I purchased my brand new '93 Toyota Camry. It got so bad that one time when I was driving down the freeway I had about 4 or 5 street lights turn off as I passed each one in succession. I also noticed that each time I climbed out of the vehicle I received a quite large static shock usually between my arm and the door or my back and the car seat. I noticed that the strength of the static charge built up the further I traveled down the road and not by "time" spent sitting in the vehicle. So I was pretty sure that it wasn't my own body that was building up the charge but the vehicle itself as it traveled down the road. Also, the street lights would turn off more frequently after I had been driving some distance. Something like over 20 miles. The mercury vapor lamps that are used in street lighting requires about 850 volts ac and about 20-25 amps. The lamps "striking circuitry" to get it lit has a "overvoltage sensing protection" and I think somehow as my "charged" vehicle passed nearby, it caused this protection circuitry to shut off the light protecting the expensive mercury vapor bulbs. Back in the mid '90's when I use to replace them when I repaired microfilm duplicators (they use such a bulb in the duplication process) they would cost around $300.00 American dollars. I have no idea what they cost these days.

I put out street lights every night and 444 appears to me on daily basis. I have no idea why. a reply to: one4all
