After experimenting with discharging a capacitor, I noticed that the plastic insulation on crimp terminals fluoresces after being struck by the radiation from the spark.
I've never encountered this effect before and I do not know what is causing it.

I first thought it was a fluorescent plastic and was reacting to the intense UV light emitted by the spark, but under direct UV light the plastic does nothing. I cannot externally replicate the conditions which cause this phenomenon.

If you know why this might be happening, I'd very much like to learn about it. Please let me know!
