An insect. It's rod-like appearance simply an illusion created by travelling faster than the camera can capture a single frame. Thus creating a trail effect.
zardoz said:the most famous ones are taken by a guy who sets his speed at 1/10,000 of a second. At that speed even a humming birds wings are frozen mid flap. so i assure you ANY insect would be frozen as a very clear well formed insect, as indeed they are. but these Rods still are a blur.
So the next step is obvious. cameras that have a 1/50, 000 shutter speed.

Nobody seemed to know, on the show, where they came from or why they are here, so the same night I asked my "spirit guides" that exact question. .
Just a thought...these spirit guides, they don't come out of a bottle do they?
