It looks like a cruise missile to me!

"Rod's" always have a characteristic corkscrew effect caused by the wings of the moth or insect flapping. If you notice on this, no corkscrew.

Just do a little looking at the following website and you will find several missiles that match the "UFO".

Is it common for respected ATS members such as jritzman and crakeur to make judgements on a topic (which sway member opinion) when they clearly haven't observed the subject in a thorough manner? This wasn't a bug flying behind the cloud and the case is not closed.


Yes. It's called video interlacing. Basically the cloud is relatively static. The 'rod'
moved relatively fast. (it's actually a bug or a bird) With video interlacing = voila it APPEARS the 'rod' is moving behind the clouds. It's not magic. It's not cylindrical UFO.

If you want to know more google video interlacing and do some research. I don't have time to explain...

I'm sorry for being so ignorant
but if you are trying to explain all rod phenomenon as bug theories
then how do you explain those same type rods in earth's orbit
as captured by NASA's videos ??

Are you saying that there are also bugs flying in outer space too ???

I don't think so, no offense

You explained it perfectly.

The issue is always going to be people placing belief in one visual data piece or another, only to be disappointed or defensive when it's revealed as a misidentification, or any number of explanations.

The core problem? The public at large doesn't know the workings and limitations/effects of cams, from NASA ones to earth based ones. Many still believe video tape perfectly represents what was observed. It just ain't true.

Henceforth, why our skies and surrounding space are literally teaming with UFOs.

Wow. I feel embarrassed for that photographer, because he caused a commotion over what is clearly an insect flying past his camera. Also, I'm not sure how you get a "long 1/2 mile tube cigar shaped craft" from the same thing I just watched. That's quite a stretch.

while I would have to agree that "some" rod shaped ufo's
can be explained by bugs & shutter speeds and so forth. Though
I don't believe for a moment that "all" can be explained
in that manner. In my opinion, this is one of those that can't.

But I guess we are all free to believe what we wish. As I doubt
any time soon that NASA is gonna come out and disclose the
true culprit of said video or any other ufo phenomenon for
that matter. Which leaves our own hypothesis's and theories
the only thing we have to rely on.

I guess the next thing your gonna tell me is that the ufo's
surrounding NASA's tether incident can be attributed to amoeba
that was close to the camera lens even though it clearly passes
behind the tether. Hard for even a skeptic to rationalize an
explanation other than et. So if they can look like amoeba
they most def can look like bugs as well. Can they not ??

Ok. So answer one question for us:

Why?

What is it in this particular piece that just won't allow you to accept this as an answer.

Thats all I wanna know.

they didn't investigate anything. there's nothing to see. they don't do it anymore although they sure do seem to have quite a bit of records detailing what they don't do.



That's true. They never investigated it for the last 40 years....

There tons of paperwork in the U.S. archives that proves that


But the U.K. and France did have some things which they put on the internet.

But the U.S. is a total different country where nothing happens regarding to UFO's.....

cuz in my opinion, the object in question went behind the cloud.
Not only did I notice it even before the reporter mentioned it,
but I reviewed it many times and every time I saw the same thing.
There is one still frame where the front of the object is visible
then the middle part is obscure behind the cloud then the tail
is visible again. So there are 3 different views of the object
in that one frame. Unobscured, obscured and then unobscured.
If it was lighting distortion from shutter speeds on a bug, then
the bug would not have disappeared on the white background
when clearly the bug is dark in color.

A shutter speed incident of a bug would not obscure the middle
part of that object leaving the other 2 (ends) visible. It went
behind the clouds. The cloud cover was way above the plane
thus making a ratio comparison that the object was way larger
than the aircraft.

Also if it was a bug, then how do you account for the double
set of what appears to be tentacles. There are 4 in the still
shots. How many bugs do you know of that have 4 wings
other than a dragonfly? And it can't be a dragonfly cuz the
tentacles (wings) are not in the right location on the object
exterior frame. The dragonfly's wings are both together and
toward the front of his body which is not where they are located
in those stills. Unless you're telling me the dragonfly was flying
backwards at high speed.

There is too much evidence in my opinion to counter the
bug theory. It just don't add up for me. But if you want to
believe it, go ahead as this is a free forum.

And as far as a missile theory. I doubt it very much
being that close to an airliner without somebody being
jail in gitmo for the offense as we would have heard about
it on the news WAY before now since Bush loves to tell
his terror (fear) stories on TV for public support.

I also doubt the missile theory for another reason.
A missile fired that close to an airport could NOT have come
from a shoulder fired mechanism. It would have to have come
from an airborne platform. It was too large to be
carried on someone's shoulder PLUS the fact that even if it was
a shoulder fired missile, it's trajectory would be headed upward
toward aircraft and not on a steady level flight path as is
apparent in the video. Unless you mean to say that we've been
invaded by enemy aircraft and they fired at our airliners
which I'm sure that we would have invaded that country by now.

So for those who say missile or bugs .... I say hogwash !!!

I think this is a bona fide case of a ufo based upon
what I've seen so far. And that is why I don't accept your
answer as a solution.

Actually SimonSays, I personally believe that some of the NASA footage from various STS missions is some of the best evidence for ufo's out there. The tether incident is one of my favorites. It's hard to misinterpret that, like it's hard to misinterpret objects in space on more than one occasion making 90 degree turns at amazing rates of speed.

With that said, I just feel that rods in particular are easily explained.

Ok, so you basically negate the aspects of video that produce exactly what you're seeing on the tape, without really looking into why based on the mechanics of how the image is captured. Therefore, you essentially say everything known about how video works in the production world, is wrong.

"A shutter speed incident of a bug would not obscure the middle
part of that object leaving the other 2 (ends) visible."

It's not obscured, it's simply not captured within that particular frame, at that angle. Again, as you've been told, go read about interlaced video, and how video captures.

Lets put it this way, had it been behind the cloud, you'd not make out half the detail you can here. Atmospheric hazing would take care of that for sure. It's not behind anything.

But I digress, you believe what you like. You know best.

dude .... it is an expensive professional camera used for TV .... it's
not a mini cam used for the internet or a hand-held
digital camcorder you buy at Wal-Mart.

I feel like a trial lawyer standing and saying "I object your honor"
stealing a line from Johnny Cochran "If the camera doesn't fit ....
you must acquit!!!" .... LOL

this line of questioning is getting us nowhere

blaming ALL rod footage on camera flaws is a flawed theory !!

I'm done with this ...... no offense

Ok, I ain't arguin'. Everyone here has tried to show and explain to ya (including the History channel and the fantastic link to the fact or fiction article), but you know more about it then all of us put together...hell it's a production cam....oh geeze ya got me there...they never make mistakes, they're the infallible cams!!.



Now I'll tell you why I think you don't want to accept this as an answer: You're emotionally vested. You want this to be, something, and no one is going to tell you different. Why? Because you feel your reputation or intelligence is on the line, if nothing else.

It isn't. And there's nothing wrong with saying "they got me", or "I'm wrong, it was..." or "I didn't realize...". We all do this. It's how ya learn and we're all constantly doing that.

Of course this is all just my take on your position. But it serves as a micro of the community these days. People are vested one way or another, and just refuse to accept any other answer.

I'm not bustin ya dude, please I beg ya, go read some on video and it's behavior. I'm serious, you'll save yourself a lot of disappointment, and you'll be more interested when you *cant* explain a piece.

why would the FBI take the guy in for questioning? He filmed it by accident, maybe they do know about UFO's or because the object was so close to the airport.

Would it be possible for anyone here to point their cam to the sky and record an insect flying by?

I would like to see if they all look like what's showing in this video which to me looks like the quintissential rod phenomenon. I personally am on the fence about this phenomenon and it does not matter to me either way that rods are only insects... if they are, so be it.. no big deal, but would just like for some of those who are saying that that's what they are to prove it by recording their own movie of an insect flying by to show everyone here that what's in this video is an insect and nothing more.




The History Channel doc. will air Jan. 9, 2007.
It clearly goes behind the cloud in the video, it was at least 5000 feet in the air which makes it at least 200 ft long traveling well over 1000mph....
www.youtube.com...

Hmmmm, no bugs that I know of fly 5000 ft. in the air like that..
If Jritzman is saying it's only an insect then those facts given about that 'object' are complete fabrications.

The professional camerman man that did the Hist. Channel test, in addition to a camera with a standard shutter speed, did use a professional camera used to film objects at a high speed. It's not a matter of the camera, it's all about shutter speed and exposure time. The airport camerman was using, I'm sure, a standard shutter speed. If he was filming with a high speed camera, he would have ended up with a blurry plane and a clear bug. If your trying to film, let's say a hummingbird or insect, you wouldn't use standard shutter speed.

I respect your opinion, however, as jritzman said, check out the History Channel episode when it reruns.

Have a great weekend, big doings in Texas!

What gives you the impression that it is larger than the jet?

Yes it does look like a missile to me, possibly a misfired one that almost hits a jetliner to boot. Do you really think the military is going to cop to almost hitting a civilian aircraft full of people with a missile?

Now I'm not saying it was a live missile or anything but I think we'll all agree that it is possible for one to be misfired.

Of course I could be wrong and I accept that but it sure ain't no alien ship!

That the FBI showed up doesn't surprise me. I would hope that they would if someone reported something like that. But they only showed up because of what was seen in this video. No one else saw or heard anything.

I would have to doubt that rods are animals. if they were, we would have found some dead ones somewhere- at some point.

I think it is just something skimming thru my dimension.

They are something and that is for sure.

insect. too close to a camera set to infinity, this has already been proven on the field and in controlled studies.
