Recently in Hong Kong news, they showed news about flying rods in China, Beijing. it was fascinating.
i can't remember much here are the important points, if i could find the footage again, or news about it, i'll post it here.
A supposely "flying rod" has beed discovered by a security camera. Then they called up the ufo experts, who came and investigated about this case.
They put up nets and night and stuff, and observed the camera again. And there it was the flying rod, zooming past the camera and straight into the
net. everybody, excitied started runnign towards it and to their dismay it was a moth, in fact the fastest flying moth. The next day, the ufo experts
were walking in the field with their hand held video camera and when oen accidently slipped, there it was again the flying rod.
The conclusion they came upon were that the rods were really the moths. They speeded up the security camera to many frames per second and all the
insects were flying around, as usual. Then, they decreased the frames per second and as that happen, there was a longer trail, or say lag behind the
flying creature. Like when we take videos of cars with low frames per sercond , there appears a trail of lights and blur behind it. the original
security camera had a relatively low frames per second, therefore the illusion of a flying rod when it was really the fastest moth flying past.
The experts admitted that they have miscalculated the distance of rod from the camera and therefore mistakened its speed.
These evidence sounds very convincing, perhaps the flying rods were moths after all.
