What causes interior lights (under r/v mirror) to come on during middle of night on 1997 Lincoln Continental

Last night, they came on and then later they went off by themselves. I keep headlights on auto, which come on while driving. This "mystery" has happened before, once several months ago, and then about a week ago. I had to replace my battery,so I would appreciate any help offered.
