Excellent post!

Yes, orbs, rods, and many "UFO" images are nothing more than
common optical phenomena. When I was making the rounds of the
UFO conferences it always angered me when speakers passed these
off as photos of UFOs, orbs, rods, whatever, and angered me even
more when their visually illiterate audiences accepted them.
