Location of Sighting: Bear Lake State Park, Idaho (St Charles, Idaho)
Date of Sighting: April 28, 2021
Time of Sighting: 9:30 PM MDT
Description: We were camping at Bear Lake State park in Idaho last Wednesday. I took these pictures with my iPhone 12 and didn’t really look at them much until last night at home. The first image was taken at 9:30 PM. I see a couple of rods above my van. The sun was set and the moon had not risen yet. The second image was taken at 9:31 PM. I enhanced both images to get a better look at the rods. To my surprise there were quite a few of them in the shot. The second image shows not so many rods, but a reddish bell shaped light. This was a remote area with no traffic and just a few bathroom lights on the campground. Anyway I think it’s strange.
Note: I don’t think that the apparent rods are real. The rods could be due to longer night camera exposure and may be insects.Note to Commenters: If you are reporting a sighting, be sure to include the location (city, state, country), date and time of your sighting.

This is actually explainable as bugs being captured on your camera. Pictures are blurry if there is movement with your camera and these insects are fast moving and illuminated by your flash. This is creating the “rods”. This phenomena has been debunked numerous times. Sorry!
