I'm reminded of a quote from the TV show Mythbusters: "it's kind of like watching the grass grow, except there's an explosion at the end". The sudden loss of vacuum was unexpected but cool, made me jump a little.

Interesting how it pops when you hook the second wire back up!

Preheat Fluorescents forever!
I love diesel engines, rural/farm life and vintage lighting!

Reminds me of when I fried a T8 tube with shields a very very long time ago. one of the tungsten supports melted onto the shield thus it became the electrode and glowed bright purple continuously. It lasted over an hour in that state before losing vacuum 3 inches of the glass at that end went black. I smashed the lamp open and the whole shield was completely matt black (probably oxidized when the seal went and the shield was still hot). This happened before I had a camera so couldn't capture it.

Keeping electrodes hot and gases ionzied.
