Ok,
I found the equation... There were some guessing going on because I didn't know what hoppy's chart start value is.

It looks like these bulbs output are bell curves rather than parabolas.

f(d) = A * (11e^(-d^2/(2*35^2)))
A is the value from my DIY sensor, d is distance.

I'll graph this out to see how close they fit.
