I also have a photo of an incandescent bulb arcing (seen here).

Old lighting is, and will always be, the best lighting.

Had this happen to me about 9 times over two decades. Most of them were in GE BR30 flood lights, one BR40 (again GE) another in a range hood bulb and another in a dinning room lamp. The bulb would flicker a bit and make a distinct buzzing almost high pitched ring. If you turned the lamp off and back on it would not light. Was able to bet on it once lol- good times lol.

I'm guessing the filament breaks down in a weak spot, ionizes the gas fill and it arcs across- but thats just me guessing.
