Those are so called “Alien Rods”. They appear all around the world, but only seen in film. They might be extraterrestial beings.

they’re not lightning rods. they are bugs. because the shutter speed on the camera is slower than the tiny bugs themselves, they create “rods”. its just a blurred version of them. like when you take a pic, and move while the picture is being taken.

I have seen these rods on film and it is very true. You dont see them in life, only when you replay the video. its spooky and exciting!

those “rods” were debunked years ago!!!! they are mistakes in the film/ or the developing process. do some research before you post
