Looks like a plant light... you stick it in the dirt so it can shine upwards through the foliage and cast shadows.

???????????

The thing is emitting light, that obvious since there is no shadow behind it which would be the case if this were reflecting light being shined toward it. The case doesn’t looked “polished” and “consumer ready” like a commercial flashlight would look. This implies that you probably don’t normally see the back parts of this thing meaning it’s some sort of insert or replacement plug type item. The vents around the "head" seem there for heat dissipation? It also seems battery powered?

Ok, so my guess is, a Heat Lamp insert for some type of portable commercial cooker/warmer?

It almost reminds me of the runway lights you see at a landing strip of an airport. They are usually flush (set into the ground) with the runway and help guide the planes to the landing strip.

I think my guess is off tho, because if it was an airstrip light, it would have connections for a power source unless it was rigged to use batteries. Ok.. now I'm over thinking it!

It has nothing to do with airport runway lighting or the directing of aircraft.....that I know for a fact from experience.

How about maybe a swimming pool light?

Can we get some dimensions on this thing?? What is it made of?? Plastic?? Some sort of metal?
