Hi,

These shots were sent to me from a relative as I'm known as the weird one. His mate has surveillance cameras set up around his house and motion sensor lights. I'm still waiting back for more info from him. At first I thought bug but then I thought a bug wouldn't show that 'tail?' and it also wouldn't trigger a camera from that distance but then who knows.

Hopefully someone can give me an explanation so I can pass it on, don't mind the date and time are out too.

It looks like a meteor, especially with the debris in the tail but a meteor wouldn't trip a motion sensor.  It could also be lights on a roof. LOL. Hard to tell with such poor quality and without a daylight shot.

It could be just me, seeing thing's, but to me it does look like there is a person between the fence and the foliage, which would trip the motion sensor
I have outlined where...
There also seem's to be a shadow of the person on the fence, which would backup my theory of there being a person there

I think a person on their property would be more of a problem then a bug or whatever, after all you don't set up these systems and check them out unless you're worried about uninvited visitors.

It's late here but I'll txt tomorrow and see if there's anymore info.

Are the photos you uploaded taken of a monitor? Can you upload the original photos? Quality is horrible :(

Would be good to see the same image during the day which may explain the strange light at the top of the image. Also, anything could have set off the camera, a small animal or even the wind blowing the bush on the right. I don't see anything on the fence apart from the shadow of the bush.

Thanks for sharing

It's a still from one of the security cameras they have running 24/7. I don't know them personally, a relative sent it to me.

With a better quality image it would be much easier to tell.

To me though, it just looks like a bug flying past. High exposure settings due to the darkness, the blotches of light along the trail could be from the winds beating.

That white streak across the top of the image. It looks like a rain gutter to me...

Have to ask why the tilted one.. can't they actually capture the images properly?  Then we can see the actual data rather than what looks like a cellphone snapshot off a bad screen..

Anyway, at a guess and with my reasons..
1. It seems to be blurred, both from motion (see next item) and from being close to the lens (although the whole image is very blurred)
2. These cameras often use slow shutter speeds at night, so something traveling at a moderate speed (eg moth..) close to the camera will traverse a long *angular* distance in a single (interlaced?) frame.
3. There are fairly regular brighter spots in the 'trail' (if that is what it is) - could be brighter areas of the wings being at an angle to catch the IR light from either a nearby light or the camera's LEDs..

So my guess is an insect.  I am reminded of the scammers Jose Escamilla and Santiago Ytturia (aka Free Spirit) and their attempt to milk money out of the ridiculous 'Rods' fiasco - this looks rather similar...  I can think of other things that might cause the effect - however without better footage... and how's about some frames immediately before and after?  If they are serious about getting this looked at, they need to put a bit more effort in..

Frankly I'd be very surprised if this isn't a frequent occurrence - is this the first time that anyone has seriously examined the night's footage, perhaps?

Insect. They make a pattern like that and have seen it before.

I see nothing other than two jumbled night vision images of two plants.

Is there a day light angle?

I was gonna say it looks a bit like the 'skyfish' photos I've seen before which turned out to be insects being capture on video with relatively long exposure times per frame.

But with only one blurry pic of a single frame that looks like it was snapped of a TV or monitor display, it's hard to say much really.  I'd like to see a daytime pic taken from the same angle and perhaps and frames just before and after the pic in the OP.
