i dunno... i would say that its a light refraction... but its good that you've got your eyes open. hell, with all this aliening going on everywhere, seems like everyone'll be seeing the real stuff more and more. and welcome

Forgive me for asking but,

What are alien rods?

the apparent movement of the light refraction closely matches the apparent movement of everything else in that pic. I would say that the person taking the pic suddenly shifted position, that is why everything is so distorted there.

I am quite certain that if the picture taker was still, the light refractions would be more readily noticeable as such.


Also, I might add a very lousy pic.

alien rods are kind of like ufos, only they move faster, and are bugs that fly in front of high speed camaras

I am not trying to be negative, but weren't they debunked a year or two ago as insects flying at high speeds, creating the exact effects in a controlled environment?

I thought they were.

Yes, that's exactly what they are. I'm not exactly a professional photographer, but I know for a fact that simply shortening the exposure time will correct the image.

You can tell the movement of every light source in the image. When taking a picture/film of a fast moving bug, the image will contain the whole path of the insect from the beginning to end of exposure. With supposed "rod" pictures, you can actually make out the movement of wings..

Light from Venus, reflected off of swamp gas, maybe. Looks like a nice blur though. Sorry, my mom didn't spank me enough when I was little

It looks like an over exposure to two points of either reflected, refracted, or steady lights...Almost as if the shutter was open a little too long and your breathed and your arms moved while taking the picture. Try changing the shutter spead.

How'd you get into my buddies grow-room!

j/k

sorry, have to agree with the rest of the crew, overall blur looks like a quick bump or jerk to camera. "Classic" rod shots are usually taken by occulting the sun and shooting the corona. (Unless you mean the alien rods in the Martin Stubbs NASA footage).
