When you use a flash, there is something called "backscatter" that causes the light that bounces off the dust or moisture particles to be made into
circles by the lens. This is not paranormal, and easily reproduceable with a flash in any dusty, dark location.
If there is a hair in front of the lens, you can even get tubular effects. Same cause.
Light anomalies (that have their own light and move erratically) are different. These are sometimes called 'orbs,' but they are generally
paranormal and not optic effects caused by flash photography.
They will be often visible to the eye.
Backscatter is NOT visible to the naked eye, and will only show up in the photo made with a flash.
It's fun to go out and try to capture evidence, but I think you might wish to nix the flash in the future and use a tripod with shutter release or
