Alien "UFO" Rods at Harewood House
Alien "UFO" Rods at Harewood House
These alien rods (see LinkExternal link ) were captured on digital camera at Harewood House on a warm spring afternoon.

They are of course not bizarre alien creatures as some believe, but flies, captured in the relatively fast time exposure of the camera. Amazingly, there are many people who believe that these are alien creatures that can only be seen in video and photographs. The clue's there in the last sentence ladies and gents...

I first heard about these "rods" in a documentary by Fox shown on Sky which was presented as serious scientific research, though their "image expert" sounded pretty clueless to me. Seriously though, I nearly laughed myself off the seat at times, but at other times I was angered by the way the "facts" were being presented. These incidentally are the same people who brought us the documentary proving that man didn't go to the moon.

I guess if there's money to be made selling books...
