Thanks for humoring me. I wanted to see if your camera would respond with similar "artifacts" with a controlled light source. It does look like a
"wedge" of dark extends above and below the light source, but I'm not sure if this is the same effect you're getting in the distance shots from your
Hmm... just trying to think if there's any easy, plausible explanation...

But remember, the OP said it can be seen with the eyes.
And THAT'S what makes it all interesting!
Good point, if it can be seen with the eyes, then camera lens effects and processing artifacts kinda get denigrated to just being "noteworthy".
The only thing that kinda sucks about that, is that there is no way for us to test this ourselves unless we are standing there with the OP looking at

Put your finger on the light in the OP'S last picture. Sorry second last picture now!
I would be kinda interested to see this experiment done, but as mentioned above, it's kinda irrelevant if we are to assume that it can be seen with
the eye as well. But I also wondered, like you, what an occluded light source would look like after seeing this last set...

So what would cause "beams of darkness"? Hmm... darkness is merely the absence of light, so it would have to "remove" or "stop" any light coming from
the area where the dark beams are. But the shape of a "beam" is troublesome too, especially at a distance with lots of ambient light. How do you
"remove" or "stop" light from emminating from a "beam"-shaped area?
What if the source of the light had some sort of on-board gravity well, or some crazy thing like that? I'm envisioning a spiraling EMF causing
gravity distortions, kinda like the jets of a black hole but in reverse - we see the singularity and don't see the jets instead of the other way
around as with a black hole?
Thinking out loud... dunno what you're seeing out there, buddy.
