I'm no expert on the matter but it was a very still night, little to no breaze and heavily vegetated i.e not a lot of loose dirt to be blowing
Even if its dust care to explain the lights in the top left corner?
I have no idea what those other two lights are. I wasn't there and the photo isn't good enough to tell.
It doesn't matter if there is a lot of visible dust in the air or not. I've researched this a LOT. I've checked with photographic experts who
explained exactly what is happening. I'm 100% positive that the "orbs" in the picture--the out of focus ones toward the right side--are nothing
more than particulates reflecting light from the flash. Nothing out of the ordinary.
If we had more pictures under slightly better conditions, perhaps I could tell you what those other two lights were. As of now, they just look like
bright spots. Given how dark the sky is in that picture, I'd say the exposure wasn't set properly to capture the sky clearly, especially considering
the amount of light thrown onto the ground from the flash. All that means is that the two lights you see in the picture just happen to be the two
brightest lights at the time. Maybe they're the two brightest stars or planets in view at the moment. Maybe they're from aircraft. There simply is
no way to tell from that single picture.
The second picture may help clear things up. One of the lights seems to be in a similar position. My guess is that it is a planet or a bright star
that happened to be in view. The second light has moved, which suggests that it was some sort of aircraft.
If we knew the precise location where these pictures were taken and the direction they were taken in, we could easily determine what stars and planets
might have been in the picture.
