Dust to Dawn contnuously goes off then on at night


I have a dusk to dawn light. Recently it has been going on at dusk as you would expect. Then through the night it goes off. Then in about 5 minutes it goes back on. This repeats itself through the night.

Has anyone ever seen anythink like this?

Is the light from the bulbs reflecting back into the photo-cell? If so, it will go on and off every few minutes all night long.
