Rod-shaped UFOs?

Rod-shaped UFOs? 

In 1994, independent filmmaker Jose Escamilla was attempting to videotape UFOs near Roswell, N.M. -- yes, that Roswell -- home of the legendary, alleged crash of a UFO in 1947 that has captured the imaginations of millions of people for decades.

"As I reviewed one of the tapes, I noticed something streak past my camera viewfinder and thought at first it was just a bird or insect," Escamilla told The Huffington Post.

"Looking at each frame of the footage again, I knew it was something more unusual. My wife called them 'rods' as they sort of looked like some kind of life form you'd see in a microscope."

Since that time, Escamilla has collected hundreds of taped examples from around the world of these so-called rods, which vary in physical form: Some look like centipedes with appendages and others have no appendages but appear to have lights on top of them.

Skeptics maintain there's nothing extraordinary about all of this -- the objects, they say, are merely insects flying very close to the camera lens.

"I think these are insects that got caught in that interlaced video as they're flying through with a wing beat frequency, and the frames are being captured at a frequency... that causes that look," insisted Marc Dantonio, chief photo and video analyst for the Mutual UFO Network.

Dantonio owns FX Models -- a Connecticut company that creates special effects and models for the government. He's one of many investigators who insist that when an object -- moving very fast, like a flying insect -- gets close enough to a camera lens with a slow enough shutter speed, it produces an effect called motion blur, making the insect's wings appear elongated, or rod-shaped.

"They're fascinating, but they're actually quite down to earth," Dantonio said.

Escamilla offers an interesting video that he says helps dispel the insect theory about rods. In the video, an amateur golfer prepares to hit a ball:

"This was shot at 5,000 frames per second, in super slow motion," Escamilla said. "You see an insect, and then you see a rod fly through the scene followed by the golfer hitting the ball. You have three distinct things here: the insect, the fast-flying rod and then the golf ball."

After nearly 20 years of collecting and studying images, films and videos of these things, Escamilla isn't willing to go out on a limb to speculate what he thinks they are. But he's adamant that the more interesting ones are not insects.

"We don't yet know exactly what they are, but I have footage of them entering and coming out of the ocean, in caves, shuttle footage of these things in space and even footage of them on Mars. This is a real phenomenon."
