Zig-zaging lights and orb!

On the night of the 16th; my boyfriend and I decided to go to the beach and snap some pictures with a new camera that we had borrowed.

I was told that the zoom on the camera would allow pictures to be taken of a meteoroid shower that I was told would be taking place that night. I was taking random shots of the beach and of us and then just to test the camera I aimed it at the sky and snapped.

At first all I got were black shots with tiny little dots for stars and then I got something that I had never seen before. At first I thought the meteoroid shower had started, but I couldn’t see anything with my naked eye and plus, these lights were going in all different directions.

So I snapped another shot and again, the black screen with just the dots. Then I tried the "series"option on the camera (takes several photos in one minute) and what I got was amazing. A couple of the shots were just black, but I got 2 more pictures of these light streaks and I was baffled because I could not see any of this with my naked eye, only when I snapped the picture, and only 4 times out of the 50 something shots I took.

I showed the pictures to my boyfriend and when we got home we uploaded them and took a closer look at these streaks on the computer. You can see many different colors, shapes and even a orb in one! We have no idea what these could be.

I have submitted these photos to several people and one even referred them to someone at NASA and no one has been able to help me so I hope you guys can! I will be submitting the photos to the email that you have provided! Please let me know if you have any information.
