very small spheres, three one frame flashes at equal time and distance intervals

Honestly I'm not sure what I've got in this video (taken with a Cannon XL1 mini DV camera. There are 2 instances that night while shooting a local commercial spot (I'm not sure of the exact date by the way.) One video clip shows a very small cigar shaped object similar to one I've seen in other video clips. It is maybe one inch long or so and pops into the frame at what seems to be around 60 in/sec (2 or so in into the frame if measured from the bottom, may have come from the top.) Unfortunately this sighting is only one frame long (1/30 sec.) as it is the last frame of the shot.

The second one is a little bit more valid. As I was going frame by frame in another clip to find where I wanted to cut it I found one frame with what seemed at first to be a pair of headlights in a window reflection until it dawned on me that it was only one frame of video. There were two very small round objects about 1/2 - 3/4 in apart apparently white in color. What I found strange was that 1 sec 8 frames later the same two round objects, the same distance apart flashed again only for one frame about 6 inches or so away and once again 1 sec. 7 frames later about another 6 inches, traveling left to right across the screen before disappearing into the lights. there are a total of three one frame (1/30 sec) flashes with a definite trajectory all equal in time and distance apart. The objects also stay the same ditance apart from each other. The rate of travel is not very fast (less than 1 foot/sec)so my guess is that these are very small spheres of light emitted from something even smaller than they are. These spheres are too small to show any kind of detail even with a pro quality camera.
