"Problem DSA?"
Does this remind you or anything? (use the title to help you). I decided to turn my M-250R1 upside down to see how the lighting effect on the room was. Indirect 175W MV lighting looks very nice in my room but I didn't want to leave it like this. This and the M-250A are the only lights I could do this with since they can be bolted from the outside of the fixture. I don't have enough clearance between the fixture and ceiling to open the door more than a foot so I couldn't install a fixture that bolts from the inside. This fixture was bolted in the pic, it just tilts up (well, when it's upside-down it tilts down) because of the rocker fitter. The camera registered this light as an incandescent-like color but it's not. It's a slightly pinkish /DX merc.

Wait, there is a ceiling above the light, so the light actually doesn't light the sky. What you REALLY need to do for just a picture is the pole you have mounted OUTSIDE, flip the light upside down and light it at night with the light shining towards the night sky then take the picture, then it would be amusing. xD (Just don't keep it upside down. xD)

I have seen this actually happen once. There was a 30 foot davit arm pole with a McGraw-Edison Unistyle 400 on it and it did in fact invert completely like this. Ironically the next year, the entire pole was removed because a new mast arm traffic signal with davit were installed.
