Well i have this cctv security cam system.

There was huge storms here for a few days.

now on infra red night vision i see what looks like the bubbles from the larence welk show floating around in my house.

We used to get the liquid bubbles when i was a kid ,just dip in the round thing and blow bubbles.

They look exactly like that.

Maybe you have fairies! They can look like that when captured on video, like literal bubbles of energy. Truly fascinating if you can zoom in, especially when they're moving.

These can be rather cool and I'd sure go with some a nice fairy tales & and unique characters sharing your space for fun around your next campfire. The recent storm likely also got some air currents moving around some dust.

Even in some polaroid photos as a teen, we could see some of these orbs - from the cigarette smoke that was often very dense in the room in those days. Something about the polaroid flash, I think, also made them more prone over other kinds of cameras, it seemed.

. . . You will also see orbs drifting across in video footage, but usually only when there is a light source (Infra Red or visible) situated close to the video camera lens. In the case of IR surveillance cameras, the IR LEDs surround the lens. These will show up-close dust particles as 'orbs'.

Contributing factors include the JPEG file compression employed by most compact cameras and the application of digital sharpening in the camera. These processes, as well as the optical quality of the lens, enhance colours and patterns "within" the orb, making them seem more than what they are: that is, specular flash reflections of the highlights of airborne motes. . . .

Circle of Confusion Explained

The diagram shows how illuminated dust particles close to the lens render as larger circles at the image plane. Out of focus points appear as Circles Of Confusion (COC) where they hit the imaging sensor or film, and this image is the orb you see in the photo.

Dust particles move on air currents, which alter when you open a door and walk into a room or hallway. Human movement stirs up dust.

Dust photographs as little bright circles of light on film or digital cameras, when illuminated by light sources close to the camera lens. This explains nearly every 'orb' photo you will ever see.

[Scroll all the way down to also see dust orbs in various living room photos. While the furniture is surely different, your air might look just like the air in this photo stills]

The shape of the camera lens can also vary things.
