Flying Rods: Insects, Serpents, or UFOs?



Small “rods” (also called “skyfish”) seem to be insect-like worms that fly quickly in front of camera lenses. But, what are these similar looking, but much larger creatures, that fly in outer space with UFOs?

Is one a smaller version than the other, or are they two different things?

Here they look like small creatures, caught on camera. They are called skyfish.



In this video, they appear to be insects or small creatures:


So then what are these BIG things?

Here they are much larger, and associate with UFOs.. They are compared by NASA to the tether, which acts as a measuring device for size.

The tether is 12 miles long. Compared to this, they are several miles long themselves. They are not small insects.

Are the skyfish related to the larger “creatures (objects),” or are these 2 different “animals?”

I am not sure what the skyfish eat, but it must be small. I am glad.

I wonder what the “monster sized” creatures eat???

Curious thought. Maybe they just eat space debris.

Or, maybe nothing at all, if they are nonliving.

Or exactly what are they? Do they eat?

When the large ones invade our atmosphere, what do they do?

Here are some flying over Baghdad on 4/3/0 3.







Flying fiery serpents in the Bible:

I wonder if there is any relationship between these rods and creatures mentioned in the Old Testament

Isaiah 14:29: “Do not rejoice, all you of Philistia, because the rod that struck you is broken; for out of the serpent’s roots will come a viper, and its offspring will be a fiery flying serpent.”

Isaiah 30:6: “The burden against the beasts of the South. Through a land of trouble and anguish, from which came the lioness and the lion, the viper and the fiery flying serpent, they will carry their riches on the backs of young donkeys, and their treasures on the humps of camels, to a people who shall not profit;”


Final thoughts

So far, there is no modern evidence of the fiery nature of the rods, but if the large ones are also alive, like the smaller ones, then we will not know until they bite us.

Different cultures such as the Greeks and Egyptians, and Mayans have described or portrayed winged serpents in their art.

I wonder if there is some connection between these rods and those creatures.

  1. […] here for […]

  2. hi marianne,
    this article is very unbalanced… there are many criticisms, and studies indicating quite different interpretations of these things. of course i don’t know what is right… but someone presenting only one view of an idea appears suspiciously uninterested in the truth of the matter; more interested in what they “want” the thing to be… i realize you put lots of question marks… but you entirely ignored some rather sound/logical discussion on these things.

    traps set up by scientists in china to attempt to catch these rods [an obvious step to take in “solving” the mystery] caught nothing but moths, whilst the video showed the nets catching “rods”. there is much discussion about exposure rate of video cameras related to the flapping of insect wings.

    at any rate, scientists haven’t scratched the surface of this complex universe (an expert in cellular biology will confess that a single cell, the smallest unit of life, is as complex as a galaxy). it is a non sequitor to even imply that things we do not understand are likely related to scriptural allusions or extra-terrestrial “life,” much more-so to begin talking about “when they bite us.” ???

    i fear lest so many things take our eyes off Christ. these strange things appeal to the human mind (which is depraved by nature), but distract us from the true realities that you and i are well aware of. the more we spend time on youtube watching the things that excite unbelievers, the more we slide out of the plane of reality into the plane of the unprofitable, the silly, the absurd, the distractions. watch leonard ravenhill, paul washer, tozer, reidhead, tim conway, carter conlon on youtube– far more fascinating (dramatic music not required), and far more connected to reality. (and scripture.)


    • Hi Paul

      I appreciate your opinion. At first, I assumed these things were just insects, since the initial creatures were small. Then I saw larger versions.

      As I am always wondering about bible prophecy, the role of any creature in the end times becomes fascinating to me. Also, how does science support the bible, rather than oppose it?

      It was not meant to distract from the message of the gospel, but possibly enhance events that may unfold in the near future. We are told about the plagues that come “from the beasts of the field.” Will these elusive lifeforms be a part of this?

      Anyhow, this blog is not just to make Christians think about the Bible message, but to also draw in unbelievers. They might start with possibly secular topics that might interest them, and then proceed to more spiritual topics, and then benefit from them.

      God bless you.

      • dear marianne,
        it is certainly a good point about reaching unbelievers with something on their own soil, and i have forgotten that. now i recall that when apostle paul visited athens, he certainly didn’t pull out the hebrew scripture (as he DID when visiting jewish synagogues)… rather he began with the topic of the stone idols he had observed in their city.
        as for science… i certainly believe that true science cannot in any way oppose the Bible. i’m frustrated with the atheist fabrication of a so-called science versus christianity battle. pure science is the study of God’s creation here, and is a delight to a Christian more than to anyone. the political stranglehold on freedom of inquiry in science is not about science at all; it’s about atheists with an agenda so dear to their hearts that they will sacrifice scientific freedom in order to block the God they hate.
        as of the Bible prophesies… i am absolutely no expert. and now i wish i could find the paper from the speaker i listened to… he was a language and literary scholar, and spoke about “the bible as literature”… lots to mention, but one thing was an indication of what parts of the Bible are absolutely literal facts (the history books such as 1,2 samuel, kings, and chronicles, as well as the gospels and letters) versus scripture that can be more poetic and containing metaphors. i’m pretty sure i recall a strong argument that a lot of the prophetic material, including the portions in the book of revelation, are more metaphorical. but i’m not being very persuasive here! i’m just wondering if all of the language about creatures etc are really referring to literal, tangible things? or is the warfare more about the things unseen to the human eye (and UV cameras)?
        one thing of interest is the (literal) prophesies (by Jesus, etc) that there will be counterfeit miracle workers. we certainly see this! in the very name of our Lord.
        may He be exalted,
        your brother

        • hi loose,

          As a scientist, I see science as supporting the bible, not opposing it. But I have a better attitude than many scientists. I think these little critters are interesting. Just look at how fast they move. Only God could make something like that.

          • 🙂 i love that. i despise the myth that science and Christianity are somehow at odds with another. science is the study of God’s creation. in this sense, the Christian loves and grasps science to an unthinkably fuller measure than the secular scientist.

            what IS at odds with Christianity is the political strangle-hold on scientific freedom of investigation, as bullied by the religion of atheism. an atheist scientist hates God so much that she/he will rather discard the fundamental freedoms of the very “science” that she has embraced as her passion. 😦 sad.

  3. Marianne,

    From spiritual point of view, mathematics of such phenomenon are quite simple: everything that is elevated in heavens, is degraded in lower world and everything that is degraded in heavens is elevated in lower worlds, including hellish dimensions. This is why all reptiloids, insects and creeping things become as “gods” in unclean dimensions, from which these UFOs come. Actually, all these creatures on our earth are smaller copies of entities in unclean dimensions. Prophet Ezekiel has record of it:

    “And He said unto me: ‘Go in, and see the wicked abominations that they do here.’
    So I went in and saw; and behold every detestable form of creeping things and beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, portrayed upon the wall round about.”
    (Ezekiel 8:9-10)

  4. A “flying rod” as seen in everyday consumer videos is a fast flying insect that is digitally elongated due to shutter speed and capture processing. Read here:
    I saw a tv program a while back that showed and explained what was happening (an episode of “Is It Real?” I think).

  5. Good question Marianne. What about the BIG ONES ? Are they Giant insects caught on camera ? HUM. Could it be they are something else? Till they are investigated more how would we ever know.
    blessings and shalom,

  6. and then theres rods stewart

  7. Hi Marianne,
    I have seen a ufo having a rod description, back in January 1968.
    It is still very vivid in my memory, after all these years.
    What do you think about the latest apparition, appearing over Moscow?
    I believe we are entering an era of a bevy of such things.
    Science will try to write them off, as some natural phenomema, but there is more to them than meet the eye!
    Only those who have the eyes of their heart opened will know what they mean!

    • hi glenn

      I think if the rods are invading our atmosphere, then there is a reason they are here now. I do not think it is for a good purpose.

  8. I wonder if the flying rods are related to these flying snakes.

  9. sometimes UFOs take the rod shape….

  10. “As a scientist, I see science as supporting the bible, not opposing it. But I have a better attitude than many scientists. I think these little critters are interesting. Just look at how fast they move. Only God could make something like that.”

    that really is the word of a true scientist, einstein would be proud.

    • hi Z

      yes, einstein would be proud.

      I think he would be interested in finding out how the incredible speed of these objects, and their ability to materialize and dematerialize fit into his measurements and theories.

  11. nice to see that one of those alien videos has aphex twin as the music, did you know that he actually captured an alien and used him in this music video?

  12. I doubt anyone would see this. But a while ago (over a year at least) When I was first introduced to Flying Rods, I found a video of them in space. It showed the edge of what I guess was a NASA Satellite, and the Rods were visable coming OUT of the earth’s atmosphere and into space. There where hundreds of them flying past the satellite’s wing (or whatever it was). However, this only solid proof of flying rod’s – seeing as that video above certainly wasn’t them – disappeared from the internet a few days later and I’ve never been able to find it again. I remember the theory being that in space they had to move slower and that’s why we could see them all. You know how in the movies there’s scenes of meteors/shooting stars/whatever falling into the earth’s atmosphere? It was like that was constantly happening, but backwards. Anywho, I’m on quite the hunt for this video now, if anyone finds it;

    • Nicole

      Do any of the videos on this page match what you are looking for? I think I had it posted, but youtube disabled it.

      I just posted 2 more videos. See if that helps.

    • I believe the video I’m looking for was shot with a fixed camera and I know it wasn’t from 2010 – However this second video is much more similar to what I’m looking for 😀 It’s definitely a good replacement if I can’t find the video that I’m looking for.

      Thank you so much for locating this so quickly. And youtube disabled a video you had that was one of the recordings from space? That’s odd to say the least – though if it was leaked footage then I guess it could violate some law or Terms or Service use.

      This video will also be useful as a reference, thanks again.

  13. Scheduled visits? UFOs – Satan’s army in the sky.

  14. Interesting… I have experienced some strange things myself this last three years.

  15. Nice time lapse of aurora boreialis, but look at what is flying past the plane in the video. Lighted, rod like things.

    video – rods at 1:18 – 1:30

  16. Just turn your camera up to 60fps and you will see the moths as normal using a camera a 15fps will do this.

  17. s’ hebrew lesson of the day- שרף, from the root to burn, we interpret here as burning serpent because it is used for that purpose when the children of israel are attacked by them in the desert and then moses heals them by making a copper snake and putting it up on a pole, and whoever looked upon it was healed. in that story, they seemed to be literal snakes who actually bit the israelites, and no reference to them flying is giving since they didn’t need to, god just made them appear in the middle of the community. this name is also used for the שרפים/seraphim, which are considered to be a type of angel. so שרף מעופף/flying burning snake could be interpreted flying seraphim/angels. it’s interesting that the type of angels of ezekiel’s vision, the חיות/chayot, actually mean animals or living things/beings. they are described as having four faces- human, lion, ox, and eagle. so we see that there is a connection between types of angels and certain animals. so it would make sense that these seraphim angels would have a connection with flying burning serpents.
    on another note, i’ve come across some video that someone claimed to have burns from radiations from a close encounter with a ufo. could the burning just be radiation? it’s interesting that the classic picture of a ufo is very similar to humans, and the feature that makes him the most extra-terrestrial looking is the lack of hair. people who undergo radiation (be it treatment for cancer or at a reactor like japan or chernobyl) lose their hair. i think radiation might be a key in understanding what the connection between these things is- angels, flying serpents, and burning.
    good stuff as always Marianne =)

    • hi “s”

      It is nice to have someone like you give the hebrew word for what we are reading. It gives more definition to the content. thanks.

  18. so believing in aliens and ufo’s are silly ?? you riligouse people always say the same thing . let me explain somthing to you ( billions of years ago there acured somthing called the big bang which created everything all mater in teh univers was created in that event and at that time time was also created along with space before that there exsisted no time and no space so tell me how could there be a god ? if there was no time and space ) you might say haha ! so who started the big bang ) will as you may know which i doubt you do particels and atoms move from place to place without any thing causing it so our univers could have just come into being nothing caused it it just happend ) and if youre bible was right and every thing in it tells nothing but the truth then tell me why does the bible change every century when they discover somthing new bible : in the bible it is said that the world is in the center and everything rotates around the earth
    fact : the earth is not in the middle the sun is in the middle and the only thing rotating around earth is the moon
    bible: ( ther exists a kindom in the skies
    fact : we went through heaven and into space still no ( city made of gold )
    hehe and you know whats the best part ?? while youre calling ufos silly there are countles accounts of them in youre own bible !!
    ( sphere that guided the guy and his people through the desert )
    an object with wheels within wheels ( a scientiest folowed the exact thing the guy in the bible discribed and gues what he made … a space ccapsule .. some guy working for nasa made somthing hoping to depunk the ancient alien theory by going to the mayan pyramid were one of the kings were buried you know the guy that every one says is sitting in a space ship he build a moddel of what he saw .. and gues what he ended up building ? a rocket

    and a nother fact i used to be cahtolick

    the real lie is the bible tell me how is beliving in aliens dummer then beliving in a god and some ugly dude with horns ?
    the bible said god was in the heavens

  19. with the way this message explained about this big bang, im tottaly confused right now.. i believe in god but i guess i need more info about what are those things that hapend in the pas..

    • hi jon

      God created all creation, so it is amazing at what we find in the universe as we are able to reach out and discover more.

      the past should not bother us or confuse us. Much is fact about the past, and much is speculation.

      When we get to heaven, we will be given much to wonder at and then our questions will be answered.

      Just keep your faith in God, and know he will show your his glory someday, and how all these other issues are just there to prove his creative power, and sovereignty.

      Keep your eyes on the Creator, not the creation.

  20. There are documents that relate to early Welsh history. The national emblem for Wales is a dragon. In the 16 hundreds there are reports of flying dragons. They were irradescent, reasonably small, and had a penchant for chickens. Consequently the farmers killed them eventually wiping them out.
    I dont think that these are related to your flying rods, but verify the world wide folk lore of dragons, both earth bound, and flying. We have alligators and crocodiles, and Komodo dragons existing today
    To Marshal. The Bible does not say that the earth is the center and everything revolves around it. That was an idea promoted by a Greek philosepher, ( Plato?)and taken up by the early church. This was after the death of the Apostles excepting of course John, who was permited to tarry. By the same token the belief that every thing was made from nothing by God is another great misconception of the same order. The Bible teaches that God organised and formed the earth etc. from existing matter. The first creation mentioned in Genisis; is a spiritual creation to form a blue print for the physical creation that followed. Read up on Qauntum mechanics.
    Adam was not a clay voodoo doll but created in Gods own Image, Instead of reading dust use the words earthly material. Remember the serpent was told that he would eat dust all the days of his life, That is, for eternity. This means he would not, nor his master, eat of the Tree of Life. Not literal dust or dirt.

  21. The big Bang theory is just that a theory, Just like the theory of evolution. These ideas are the creations of godless men, not God.
    Revelations chp 16 v 13,14. blasphemy from the agents of Satan, False Prophets leading the people astray. These are the last days, we must have our own testimony of God the Father and His Son, that we be not led astray, but held secure in the arms of Christ. He who has an ear, let him listen to the words of God and his servants

  22. They’re bugs. You’re welcome, idiot.

  23. According to Vyatcheslav Krasheninnikov: Humans were created about 7500 years ago. Birds participate in time creation. It’s a sin to kill birds. Dinosaurs live under our level. They will get out through sinkholes and lakes. To kill them, go for their nerves. Demons grow human skin and put it on so as to look like us. Demons will invite people to be healed inside their UFOs; those who go will be like zombies after. Gov’t provides demons with diamonds and allows demons to abduct people. If you’re being abducted, scream: “JESUS!!!” Demons use diamonds and souls to power their UFO craft. The bigger the diamond, the more it lasts. Demons have 4 UFO bases: 1)Moon 2)Inside fake mountain Kailash in Tibet 3)In lake Baikal in Russia 4)In Atlantis which is underneath the Mariana Trench in Pacific Ocean. There are no aliens. Nobody lives on other planets. Airplanes that go down are hit by demons because they need the airspace to fight Jesus. Antichrist is pale with red eyes. Don’t go into a UFO to be healed by demons. 666 is given by isotope rays on wrist or forehead when people stretch hands to receive small plastic grey card (world passport). Police will chip and isotope ray people on highways. Food stores will isotope ray people too. Antichrist will also release prisoners to mark people. Reject 666 at all cost. If you’re about to be marked, scream: “Lord, have mercy!” three times. Go hide with Orthodox Christians to escape 666. God gives you a name during baptism. Devil gives you an anti-name during anti-baptism. Barcode is Druid black magic curse and a form of mark of the beast just like Social Security. People who took any number (which is an anti-name given during anti-baptism by the beast) on documents or in computer go to temporary hell; but those who receive green 666 (given with world passport with no name on it) on forehead or wrist go to permanent hell. How not to go to hell? Give back all these anti-name anti-baptism documents back to the beast by writing to appropriate authorities. If authorities refuse to cancel these anti-names, then write again (up to three times). If you wrote to the gov’t three times about it, but gov’t refused, then God will not send you to hell. Don’t take the microchip. If you already took it, get rid of it because microchipped people will be influenced by computers to take the world passport (grey plastic card with no name on it). Don’t go into a UFO to be healed by demons. Those who reject 666 will go to heaven. Also, their direct ancestors will be saved from hell.

  24. Kent, whatever your smoking, you should set the pipe down.

  25. I have about 30 of the clearest pictures ever caught of flying rods. They were all captured by a still camera

    • brandy

      that is great. I would like to see them sometime.

      • I got a bunch of pics of these things but my motion camera snapped the pics I can’t get it on video. What is this. I got a couple pictures of this on my grass. What are these things

  26. I filmed the phenomena coming pretty much head-on to the camera. Here’s the video –

  27. Marianne, I saw the ‘flying serpent’ for the first time [left me shaken] on October 4th, 2015 — just few days ago. Here’s my account. I was having a smoke outside my aunt’s house. It was approx. 4-5pm when I saw what looked like just a piece of string caught in the wind (there was no wind). It was no more than 7ft from the ground, and it was floating in a squiggly manner, like a worm/snake. It finally attached itself to a neighboring condo-house in the complex [a few yards from me] and it seemed no more than a few inches in size.

    Then, it dis-attached and began floating back where it came from. I was like: “Whoa, this thing almost has a mind of its own!”. So I followed it, and as it ‘spotted me’, it began ascending in to the sky…yet, it didn’t diminish in size — it kind of stretched out and became almost ‘spherical’/’spiral’ in appearance, and semi-transparent. As it went straight up, it continued moving in a worm/snake-like fashion non-stop. It was making it’s get-away quite slowly [and kind of gracefully], so I ran into the house to get my iphone so I could take a picture — however, it was gone by then.

    I spoke to several psychics [believe or not, up to you], and it is also my personal intuitive opinion [as I also see the UFOs, I observe them as ‘solid’ objects, rather then ethereal] — that we are surrounded with many forms of intelligence, all around, every day. I am tempted to call these entities Intra-Terrestrials, as opposed to Extra-Ts. I do not sense that the ITs intentions are malevolent [not so sure about the ETs].

    The reason I refer to ‘them’, is because the flying snake is not the only thing I saw that day. I was trying to film 2 ‘invisible’ sky-spraying planes, and the sun was setting, so I could not see my iphone screen well due to glare. However, when I looked at the video — OMG. I saw something entirely different — dark, transparent, and moving past me at lighting speed. I will post that footage shortly on my page.



  28. I see these rods in the fall quiet frequently in the evening. I have observed them several times in one position in a seesaw pattern as they hoover in one place and turn with their spiral appendages moving like the fins of a squid, then burst away with such speed I cannot follow them with my eyes. One of my friends has a trail camera and has captured a few images while viewing night time shots of deer and wild hogs. I’ve never seen them anywhere except from my deer stand. I’m an avid wildlife photographer but have never photographed one of these, the challenge is there now.

  29. I found this site after searching for what I saw yesterday. As me and my friend were hanging out by the sidewalk, we saw this strip of paper and it seemed to us at first, was getting blown by the wind. Then as we continued to look on, we saw this strip of paper speed up, past the passers-by in a worm-like sort of motion, avoiding the obstacles and turning the corner quickly. Nobody else seemed to have noticed it, and the two of us looked at each other and agreed that it was indeed a strange sight. Can somebody please help me out, has anyone experienced something similar? I saw the skyfish video and I think it is the closest to what I saw yesterday but the clip was too short…

    • sonic

      this was actually the size of a piece of paper?

      if it is small like that, it may be some insect or earthly life form

      if it is larger, and wiggles in sharp motions, you may be looking at something more alien, at least to what we are used to seeing.

  30. We were close enough to figure it was nothing like any living creature we’ve ever seen before, it literally looked like a strip of paper until it did what it did. It just zipped through the spaces between people. It wasn’t even windy enough for that thing to be floating around. I even thought at one point that it might be some sort of gag show and we were being filmed, but there was nothing like that.

  31. Me thinks they are definitely alien. If they travel to different planets and universes, I would say these creatures came from another Galaxy. They may have been made for the purpose of exploration.

  32. I have these at my house. I have tons of pictures. I’m trying to figure out what it or they, because I’ve saw several sizes, are

  33. I have seen a black rod shapped arrow headed fying insect 1inch long & thick like hair. when it landed on a wall it was extremely difficult to observe any thing more about its body parts. When it was flying nearby me, it appeared like a big mosquto. I want to know more about it. The experts are requested to explain more about it.

  34. Just found this page after seeing these “things” on many security videos from our home. I have seen them dart with amazing speed and accuracy (where I’ve seen moths on in different videos taken from the same device fly in a much different manner), seemingly change shape & then dart off again with speed that I’ve never witnessed (without the aid of putting these videos in slow motion, I can’t always see them with the naked eye on film even!). Coincidentally – or not, lol – our dog and cat have suddenly begun “hunting” … nothing 😩😆. The dogs whines anxiously and follows something (which isn’t visible to us) with her eyes, while the cat has on multiple occasions now, aggressively ran after ‘something’ while hissing – once arching his back up like you see in drawings/cartoons & attacked the shower curtain 3 times (as in jumped on it & then looked around confused, then he pounced on/into it 2 more times … yet nothing was visible to me upon inspection). So I have appreciated reading some of these comments … seems so ODD 😳
