BUFFALO, MO (KOLR) - Radar is good for many things. It can discern between rain, ice, and snow. 

But it can also pick up minuscule things. 

For instance, radar caught an image seen in the attached video near Buffalo (Missouri) Tuesday night just before 9. 

After talking with the National Weather Service, the best theory is that this image is of bats chasing bugs, says Ozarks First Meteorologist Chris Smith.
