Good find friend! Yeah that's exactly the kind of stuff that can get reflected around inside the glass of the lens. Smaller cameras do it too. That
would always bother me when I'd see a UFO video...which may have in fact been mysterious in and of itself, but then the video would zoom in past the
focus range of the lens and suddenly you'd see some odd shape which people unaware of the phenomena suddenly assume is the actual shape of the UFO.
Having ran cameras both as a hobby and professionally for a large part of my life I can recognize such shapes as just artifacts caused by lens
reflecting the internal mechanisms of the particular camera.
As far as the circles go in these photographs....I do suppose it could be something physical....for instance some gas/particle cloud surrounding the
star in an orbit of it. Still I think I'd imagine its more likely another optical effect....I'm sure I've seen it before in more mundane
images...for instance before posting this reply I did a really quick Google search looking for Street Lamp pictures...hopping to find one with the
ring effect. Unfortunately I didn't (like I said though...I only looked for about 5 minutes or so...given more motivation I'm pretty confident I'd
find a picture very similar) Maybe someone out there with a bit more time, can find one and post it here.
