Glowing green orb object seen during iPhone video playback

My sister was filming the ride "The Sling Shot" with her IPhone on the board walk.

She didn't notice anything unusual during that time until she played the video back on in the car on the way home.

We noticed on the video a strange green colored glowing butterfly shaped object following the ride as it went up and down.

The object was approximately 20 ft from the actual ride and moved with the bouncing ride similar to the natural movement of the ride itself but then took a sudden turn as the ride was bouncing back down after the 2nd bounce and went in the opposite direction of the falling/bouncing ride.

As the ride was coming back down during its final bounce the object suddenly shot back up into the sky in a very fast zig zag direction and vanished.

We couldn't explain what it was on the way home and then my sisters daughter said that it had something to do with the iPhone itself because during the ride home my niece also made a short video of her sister in the car and said that she had the same object on her phone for a short period only too.

We played her video back which was around 30 seconds long of her filming her little sister singing in the car and sure enough there was the same strange green object floating around on her screen for only about 5 seconds then disappeared as well.

After we reviewed her video both my sister and my niece tried to see if this would happened again by making a short video in the car using both phones and after several attempts to see if the video would produce the green glowing bounce object it would not.

I don't understand why it happened only on the boardwalk and in the car just the two times.

Does it have something to do with the iPhone? Or was it something following us home from the boardwalk and would only display itself during those two videos?
