Skyfish: Russia

Skyfish caught on tape in Russia 1

These strange, fast moving things in the air these day from time to time appear in media. It has been said that they were caught on film for the first time 10 years ago and since then many more films and tapes of “skyfish” are available. Some say “This may very well be the single greatest biological discovery of our age”. And it seems they live in Russia too.

    Смотрит очень подобно к штангам были сняты в южной америке

      Don’t use a translating program, please. The result is awful. No Russian (or any one else) could understand your comment.

      • Guav says:

        I took what he posted and used a translator to convert it to English and it made perfect sense even after being translated twice:

        “It looks are very are similarly to the rods of byli taken in South America”


        • Alex_AW says:

          I’ve done the same. Here is my exercisers :

          a. Looks very like to the barbells were taken off in south amerike

          b. Looks very much similarly to to bars have been removed in southern America

          I’m afraid the sense isn’t perfect enough for my weak brain to understand.

    just a bug on the lens….

  3. yingjai says:

    could be a fake. i think you need a really high speed camera to capture one on screen and that’s if you’re lucky enough to aim it at one. if these things can be caught by a regular security camera, i think we would be able to see it with our naked eye.

  4. Crow says:

    You can find out more about them by googling ‘roswell rods’

  5. D says:

    I read about these 10 years ago, and this is the first time I’ve heard about them since then. Still skeptical.

    On 8th and 9th August 2005, China Central Television (CCTV) aired a two-part documentary about flying rods in China. It reported an incident which happened from May to June of the same year at Tonghua Zhenguo Pharmaceutical Company in Tonghua City, Jilin Province, which debunked the flying rods. ([3]) Surveillance cameras in the facility’s compound captured video footage of flying rods identical to those shown in Jose Escamilla’s video. Getting no satisfactory answer to the phenomenon, the curious research staff of the facility, being scientists, decided that they would try to solve the mystery by attempting to catch these airborne creatures. Huge nets were set up and the same surveillance cameras captured rods flying into the trap. When the nets were inspected, the “rods” were no more than regular moths and other ordinary flying insects. Subsequent investigations proved that the appearance of flying rods on video was an optical illusion created by the slower recording speed of the camera (done to save video space). This is the empirical evidence, showing that the “rods” themselves can be captured, and that they do indeed prove to be ordinary animals.

    They are very delicious served with white wine and asparagus, somewhere I have a recipe for a particular white sauce with mushrooms I use with the fillets.

    You can catch them using a bait of one hard boiled griffin’s egg, attached to a hook suspended in air. It is important that you release the younger ones (shorter than 15cm) so that they can mature and spawn. Also, gravid females should be released (although the skyfish roe is quite delicious, comparable to the best caspian beluga caviar).

  8. Dungeonbrownies says:

    exactly. makes perfect sense. that and some insects lock in flight during mating so that makes up to 12 winged or more insects possible depending on conditions…

    I would have guessed they were dragonflies, but the irregular flight pattern of moths makes sense to me.

    they are insects, like said, an america has filmed for example wasps and beas (for high numbers of possible hits) with exactly the same result…

    check this site and read the info ;)

    Just check the truth out!!!

  13. Israeru says:

    Well the americans have robots machines for spy. Google them and you have results. Theyre similars.

    compression srtecat or Matrix bug ;P

  15. Flicker is really great when sharing photos over friends and families. I love the resize feature of Flickr.~~~

  16. tahrey says:

    actually you were on the right lines. each of the “creatures” in the pictures shown has 7-8 apparent wings… if the surveillance video is taken at 25fps (or has been merged to 25 from 50 for the screencapture), with 100Hz strobing lights, then you get 4 wingbeats… for the 7 winged creature, one of them wasn’t fully visible in that frame for some reason.

    Or, it’s continually lit, and it just happens to be beating at about 100 (200?) Hz as it flies past.

    It shows up far more brightly than you’d expect because it’s nightshot with infrared lighting, which they are much more reflective of than visible light (where they’d be more black – unless lit by the super strong professional filming lights that were responsible for those obvious-even-then insect-based “rods” of 10+ years back)

    I just adore your weblog! Very good post! Nevertheless it is possible to do numerous issues to improve it.

  18. nation_kingdom says:

    The answers to the mystery are obvious: frame-rate, motion blur, birds, and insects. The combination of the slower frame-rate of most video cameras (50-60 fps) and the frequency of ‘wing-flap’ of insects and (small) birds in flight produces a blurred/elongated body with multiple wing-flap cycles within a single frame set.

  19. KraKen says:

    You right asdf,..its not a Skyfish(?) and not a flying rod from outer space its an insect!
