Well Jaws was directed by Steven Spielberg, the same person who directed Close Encounters of the Third Kind and E.T. He probably added the ufos intentionally as an easter egg. It only seems reasonable that a science fiction inspired director would include a ufo cameo in his film. That's at least my take on it.

I found this when searching a little about spielberg movies... Not sure if it is completely accurate or not, but makes sense for someone who thinks like a director.
But.. Spielberg does make a note of including a shooting star in ALL of the films that he directs... not produces. He tends to use them as a foreboding, which shooting stars are in eastern superstitions.
Another note.. The shooting stars in Spielbergs' films are an homage to his father of which he and his father used to skygaze when he was a kid.
And yes, they are added in post-production.
