RODS ( unidentifyied flying object )

They are all around us . in water ….even in our homes they have been captured only on film and videotape.
No one knows what they are, where
they come from, whether or not they
are alive, and they have never been
touched or seen at rest.
They are called “rods,” “skyfish” and
sometimes “solar entities.”


the video evidence is compelling
that they are quite real and
probably living creatures, they are
completely unknown to science – a
fascinating and baffling mystery.
Skyfish were first documented by
filmmaker José Escamilla, who
discovered them by accident. In
1994, Escamilla had videotaped a
“conventional” UFO near Midway,
New Mexico. Fourteen days later,
while seeking to photograph the UFO
again, he instead captured a flying
object that was not a vehicle of any
kind. At first he thought it was just
an insect or bird. When he examined
the film frame by frame, however, it
became clear that what he had
captured on film was something
unknown. Later, more distinct
images were captured while
Escamilla was filming cliff jumpers at
a deep cave in Mexico. When he
developed the film, small flying
things could be seen zipping around
the divers at a high rate of speed –
so fast that they weren’t seen with
the naked eye.
The enhanced frames of film
revealed that the flying thing
appeared to be rod-shaped with two
undulating wings or appendages
along the length of the body and
which gave it the appearance of
swimming through the air. Escamilla
dubbed them “rods” and has since
filmed and videotaped them dozens
of times. And after introducing them
to the public through his website, , he has received
further reports and video and
photographic evidence from other
parts of the US and around the
world. The strange flying enigmas
have also turned up in documentary
footage, TV news shots and even
feature films.
Are They Alive?


Without a specimen in hand to
examine, it’s impossible to
determine whether or not skyfish are
living organisms, but it’s Escamilla’s
best guess that they are. The video
evidence certainly makes them seem
so. They move through the air like
insects or birds, sometimes darting
around objects with a kind of animal
intelligence – but at a speed far
greater than any known insect or
bird. How fast? Analysis of film and
video of skyfish from around the
world indicate that they can be
moving as fast as 150 to 1,000 miles
per hour – faster than the speed of
How big are they?

The same analysis
indicates that they might range in
size from just a few inches to
perhaps over a hundred feet in
That’s part of the
skyfish mystery, yet there they are
on video.
Although most skyfish have been
seen in the air outdoors, they have
also been photographed and
videotaped indoors and even
underwater. A photograph displayed
on Kitty’s Kitchen website appears to
show a skyfish in mid-flight ready to
pass through a doorway in her
home. And a TV news report on
Escamilla from KCOP Channel 13
includes clear footage of a skyfish
swimming in a stream, indicating
that they are equally at home in the
