Hello ATS,

A youtube channel that I have been following has recently added 2 new pieces of footage for genuine perusal.

Do these look like the same "ROD" phenomena as recorded elsewhere in the world? I would appreciate your feedback.

Thank you.

'Rods' have been debunked for several years. High-speed cameras reveal these are nothing but bugs and birds whose flight causes a blurred image.
guys, please lighten up a bit on the sarcasm. we want newbies to come here and learn, not get insulted. we can insult them after they've been here for a while.
kay?

You do realize that the object in the frame is IN FOCUS right? And, it has perfect symmetry. No blurs. It seems you know nothing about digital technology.

Still laughing?

Debunked for years? So I wonder what was swimming in water or flying about in 360 degree motions in mexico. Remember the Cave Rod incident with Jose Escamilla?

More sarcasm please, I like it.

Goes to show the level of incompetence by established "members" here on ATS.

I'm never posting here again.

Bunch of pre-pubescent children.

Please don't.

The forums don't need another UFO hothead claiming bugs are spaceships

why say that? because they disagree with you?
no one has to you know.
thats what you get here. debate. discussion.
there are'nt many agreeing with you because "rods" have been done to death here
and most people agree their bugs

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 exposures.

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" videos:

Image Source


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.
