Finally we have the long awaited answer regarding the brightly lit rod shaped object which was caught on camera during a 29 second shot of the historic St Louis Cathedral in New Orleans. So far it was widely believed that the cameraman inadvertently videotaped UFOs in New Orleans.
In fact, while the majority of keen viewers were of the opinion that it was a UFO which was actually touring the cathedral, other viewers explained this unusual appearance as perhaps an insect was flying too close to the camera at the time that this shot was taken.
However NBC Cameraman R. D. Willis has finally set the record straight and gave this side of the story which of course is more plausible than any of the wild guess by the public. The object caught on camera is in reality a commercial airplane! The reason why it appeared so weird on the videotape is because Willis who is a lapse photographer filmed this video at super slow speeds. Such manipulation is expected to give the lapse video motion a more real time motion, although there are series of still images being played back very quickly.
It looks like we’ll have to wait some more, and definitely for more concrete proof, before confirming whether there are indeed life on other planets!
