I forgot that I took these pictures over 2 years ago when I was experimenting with my first blue laser using a high speed camera and several dozen pictures I had taken over a 30 minuet time frame.
This picture was taken ((February 7th 2016))

WHAT IN THE WORLD IS THIS PHENOMENON!!??
I really would like to know what this is causing this faint near invisible light?
I forgot that I was gonna post this nearly 2 years ago!

This is a complete shot in the dark since I've never seen this kinda thing before, but it may be some sort of faded after-image from the camera sensor or the like. Was the pic taken as soon as the laser was turned off, or did you wait?

Could just be driver leakage of some sort?

I see that they are the exact frame at different
times. Since it was a long Beam exposure... you
no doubt impressed the image onto the Camera's
semiconductor image sensor as can be seen after
the beam was turned off.

hey EP yes this pic was right as the laser was turned off so you actually might be on to something, I never looked at it like that. well that sucks, I was hoping for some rare law defying physics dark energy anti matter interstellar phenomenon :crackup:
