I remember the first thing I thought when I saw this video was that something looked strange and surreal about the explosion. I was immediately distracted by the flying drone like everyone else.
This is unlike anything i've ever seen.

I ran across this yesterday, great fuel(pun intended) for another conspiracy angle. It has to do with the lithium batteries being targeted with a laser. Apparently the 1st and 2nd stages use lithium batteries which can explode. It is interesting reading. Could those small orbs be laser platforms? I am not sure if that type of beam is within the visual scale for humans.
Ian if you hit the lithium ion battery on a rocket with enough x-rays it will explode creating a small nuclear chain reaction as seen with this space-x explosion.
Please see the following video of the explosion slowed down to 1200 frames.
