These tiny little flying creatures have been a mystery to many for decades now, and there still is no real answer for their existence. These air rods, which are also called “flying rods” or “sky fish”, are kind of the equivalent of crop circles to everyone, even the skeptics. They show up on every type of camera around the world when they do decide to appear. No one really knows what they are. No one knows if they are living creatures, aliens, or just camera malfunctions. To those who believe strongly in cryptids they believe that air rods are living creatures, and are possibly related to the older stories of atmospheric beasts that once flew through the skies as they do now. To skeptics, these air rods are merely pieces of flying debris, insects or even birds being filmed under strange conditions that would produce that type of effect.
Air rods were first discovered around the 1990s in various types of film. People studying these anomalies found many in thousands and thousands of films and found thousands of types of these critters in those films. Close studies showed that these rods had extremely interesting behavior. They showed to have 3D features such as they would weave in and out of trees instead of just going through them or just staying visible always in the front of objects. They were carefully measured and they would range from about four inches to about three feet long. There seemed to be no difference between the head and tail and they had pairs of appendages all along its body.
In some air rods these appendages look kind of like fins that vibrate in undulating waves while others have some that look like bee wings. Most of the time, however, the rods are moving so fast that they are extremely blurry and it cannot be deciphered what they look like. Some rare ones can be solid white compared to the translucent ones that are mostly spotted.
Many people have grown fearful of these mysterious beings, believing they are a new species of bugs or even aliens that are invading Earth. Many skeptics believe it could be computer generated rods that are slipped into all the footage that is seen. That would be a lot of editing to get all those thousands of films to be edited like that!
It’s still a mystery to this day what they are, but it heavily believed they are real and seem to pose no threat to the people living in the world or the animals and plant life. They could possibly be aliens just visiting surveying the world to see what goes on here. Maybe one day we will learn more of their existence. Here’s to seeing the truth someday.
