    Weird!

    It was very cold here last night. My car has died, and I had to walk to the shops. As cars passed me, and their headlights hit me, I realised that there was a white glow around my body. I'm not kidding.

    My guess is that it was something to do with how cold it was (maybe body heat freezing around me?) I don't know how cold it was, apart from sub-zero-breathe-shallow cold.

    I really don't think alienz is the answer, but I wondered if any of the scientists on here could explain...

    I looked like the Ready-Brek kid, only with a white glow, not gold! I was checking myself for radiation,- musta been convection!

    It was -13 last night in some places. I wouldn't be surprised if it was to do with cold. Maybe a thin layer of frost evaporating or something (I know no science though)

    or you were surrounded by ghosts.

    Your skin respires all the time. What you seen was more than likely the same phenomenon as exhaling hot air in cold temperatures. If you were walking heat and moisture would build up and find its way out of your clothing. There would be a sort of thin haze surrounding you. Any lights nearby would refract through the moisture and cause a glow like appearance.

    I got a laugh out of the comments, although I almost always laugh a little whenever someone uses the word "asshat".

    cool! If it happens again, check if there is some sort of invisible force shield around you that will force people to go around you or cross the street,
    This might be a super power or it is time to take a shower.
