As NBC's cameras returned from a commercial break and focused on the historic, triple-steepled St. Louis Cathedral in the city nicknamed the Big Easy, a couple of lit objects seemed to streak across the darkening sky -- and they've yet to be definitively identified.

Viewed in real-time, it's hard to see much more than something flashing across the screen. But a frame-by-frame scrutiny of the video reveals a rod-shaped object topped with brightly lit dots.

Scott Air Force Base is nearby, and Missouri is the home of the stealth B-2 bombers...who knows what cool military stuff is flying around the midwest.

Bug in front of lens will look big, but the question is why does it look to be behind the steeple.

Probably some kind of opitcal illusion.

An insect wouldn’t have been picked up at that far away distance, notice that it passed behind those structures..........I’m sure it’s something that will eventually be explained rather than UFOs

Maybe it's some kind of optical pollution!

As I noted on an earlier thread, that game ended 62-7. Way more unbelievable than your garden-variety UFO zipping by. Maybe the aliens just wanted to see such carnage for themselves.

Steeples - plural. Maybe because it was?

Posters at the link point out that the steeple is being photographed in time lapse. The “rods” could be planes.

Also at the link there was a video of rods seen at a golf driving range. What they claim as a “rod” clearly looks like a ball from the golfer in the next bay.

Ain't seen the video yet (still at work), but a few years ago some folks were pushing "Roswell rods" on Coast to Coast AM.

There are no speed limit signs or radar traps up there.

Dude, this took place in New Orleans, quite a fair distance from Scott in Illinois or Whiteman in Missouri.

Alternate joke:

Yet.

Skeptics maintain there's nothing extraordinary about all of this -- the objects, they say, are merely insects flying very close to the camera lens.

Right. But an insect very close to the camera lens would not disappear behind the steeples that are several hundred feet from the camera lens.
