you guys should get day jobs and stop making ATS worse than it already is.
Those two videos are also almost definitely bugs. The effect is caused by the video camera.
Video cameras do something called "interlacing" the frames, which makes the video look smoother while reducing the amount of information in the video
(which creates a smaller video file/takes up less computer memory).
"Interlacing" borrows information from one frame to the next, mixing two or more frames together. This creates a sort of motion blur in each frame
that looks similar to a long exposure photograph, which also becomes visible as the entire video is viewed.
Therefore, basically all these videos that are purportedly "rods" are actually bugs beating their wings, and that wingbeat being captured in long
Here is a long exposure image of moths in flight. The effect seen in this image is analogous to the effect of video interlacing seen in "rod"
As for the videos in you OP, which are simply streaks, I suppose the could be insects caught in some light, and thus just a streak of them is seem as
they fly above the camera (the streak caused by motion blur), or the could possibly be small meteors. Meteors come in all sizes, and some are just
very short streaks of light, and could be relatively dim.
