Some guy found the position of every other "UFO" circle in the
image and then mapped them out on a zoomed out images to see
where they lay.

Okay, maybe they aren't exactly that. I am not familiar enough
with such marks except that every one I have seen was sharp and
had an edge. But they seem to be some sort of image
processing/tagging/registration mark.

Original one:

>I'm not convinced the "something less" analysis is correct.

Prosaic explanation, I am sure. I mean more fuzzy circles were
found over L.A. (which is likely an aircraft photo). They are
not in the more fuzzy, non-urban area images.
