The videos in your OP look like shooting stars/meteors. They could also be insects, but it's not important. What's important is that there's no such
things as "rods".
Take the video I quoted above, for instance. Do you honestly think that if there were that many "rods" flying around above someone, that
they couldn't catch just one of them for examination?
Or all the years that these "rods" have been flying around, and nobody has caught just
one for examination?
It's because they don't exist. "Rods" only exist on camera media due to long exposure
, or poor frame rate recording.
In the video I quoted above, you can tell if a camera has poor frame rate or long exposure enabled because everything else will become
elongated/blurred as well. The building and other stationary objects in the background also become blurred/elongated if you pay attention. It just
happens more-so with insects because they're moving faster.
Take these images, for example:
Are those rods in the above image? No. They are stars being elongated due to long exposure. Now the next image:
The blinking lights on the aircraft are equivalent to the flapping wings on insects in long-exposure images.
Moral of the story: "rods" are insects photoed/videoed with long-exposure turned on, or with a very poor camera that has a low frame rate, poor
exposure settings (like many cell phone cameras or very cheap web cameras).
P.S.> Since "rods" aren't real and are just insects, the video I quoted you posting above is a hoax video. The person filming would have known he was
filming only insects, but turned those insects into "rods" due to a camera setting, or just plain having a poor camera. Either way, the video was
created as a hoax to fool people like you who are gullible-enough to believe it.
