During an all-night time lapse in a very rural part of Arizona, there were 20 frames (each 20 seconds apart) that showed a strange moving figure. At first I thought it was a scorpion or rattlesnake; but neither of these could move so slowly (over 6 minutes) so smoothly. Also; there was nothing in front of the camera to “slither” on.
It looks like very poor computer animation, I assure you; the object is really there. The “object” appears to move away from the camera and down. It is definitely moving away because there is motion blur on the Z-Axis. The image is slightly gained-up to see better.
