Think about what you wrote:

Cameras of yester-year are nothing in comparison to those of
today. And a still photograph only captures a split-second image
in time. On the other hand, videos can be slowed down, frame by
frame, in order to see the movement of these
"creatures"...unlike a single-frame photograph.

Could it be possible that a still camera cannot "pick up" these
things because of their (lightning-fast) speed?

The naked eye cannot even "catch" these things in flight. Since
these "creatures" were not known before the advent of the
camcorder, how would anyone know to "shoot the sky" in the hope
of getting one of these things on a single-frame photograph?

One must also remember that "they" were caught on film entirely
by accident. Had Jose Escamilla not video-taped them, they would
have remained unknown until the next perceptive videographer
came along!

They are not an artifact of videography!

I've never captured anything like this on my own video camera,
by acident or on purpose...but I'm willing to test whether or
not I can... now that I know what to look for!

Cordially,

Michel M. Deschamps
